Kendra smith is a teenager going through many problems in her life. She has to deal with the lack of money in her family as well as the constant fighting between her parents because of the lack of money. Kendra younger sister is starting to realize the fighting between her parents and starts to question her sister. Not having enough of that Kendra has to deal with the fact that she might not be able to go to her dream school The Academy. Kendra also has a best friend named Katrina whose also going to the ACademy but the difference is is that Katrina can afford to go. Kendra also has to deal with trying to make it on the cheerleading team and trying to get the boy that she liked named Jamie to like her.This book absolutely outlines what most teenagers are probably going through now in their lives. I highly recommend this book to be used in High School classrooms in English class so students can relate to something instead of reading boring books that wont motivate them. KP Smith did an phenomenal job writing this book and keeping you engaged in it.
