A YALSA Quick Pick for Reluctant Young Adult Readers
South Bay High’s Jayd Jackson finally has her own ride, but that sure doesn’t mean her troubles are over. . .
These days, Jayd just can’t seem to get a break. Her car is more trouble than it’s worth; her girl Mickey is being forced to attend continuation school; and Rah and his ex Sandy are still arguing.

But then school starts up again, and with it comes more drama. If Jayd wants to keep it all under control, she’ll have to look deep into herself and take her destiny into her own hands. . .
