Hot Girl - Dream Jordan. The hot July sun beamed down on me, but I was in no mood to beam back. Yeah, homegirl must shop at Sluts-Are-Us. They busted into a fit of loud laughter, sounding like a pair of goofy hyenas

Hot Girl - Dream Jordan. They busted into a fit of loud laughter, sounding like a pair of goofy hyenas. Tired of watching Charles foul and fumble, I twisted around to sneak a peek at these girls.

Opportunity knocks one hot summer day when fly-girl Naleejah struts her stuff straight up to Kate and takes a seat.

It's summertime in Bed-Stuy "Do or Die" Brooklyn, and Kate is feeling down in the dumps  . Opportunity knocks one hot summer day when fly-girl Naleejah struts her stuff straight up to Kate and takes a seat. Full of smiles, Naleejah tells Kate that she remembers her from school, but Kate can't remember ever having such a fabulous chick trying to befriend her. Kate's suspicion turns to trust once Naleejah gives her a much-needed makeover.

Hot Girl was a fast and easy read with terrific dialogue. The story was about the main protagonist Kate who grows up in the foster care system. She is in a new home and not faring well with her new foster care mother. Her friend Felicia leaves her behind to go to Africa for the summer, which Kate would have been a part of had she not gotten into some beef with the other girls who were going.

Bored and with nothing to do, she wanders off to watch her homeboy Charles play at a basketball game, and that's where she meets Naleejah for the first time. Little does Kate know her life was about to change, and not in a good way. Naleejah exemplified everything you don't want in a friend.

The theme throughout this book is about choices, and how choices influence and affect your life for better or worse. Dream Jordan weaves in topics, such as the importance of education, and practicing safe sex.

Overall, Dream Jordan wrote a relevant book that I believe should be on the required reading list of every Junior High School, foster care system and juvenile detention center across the country.

Kate (aka Diamond) grew up in the foster care system. Her parents gave her up when she was one year old and she was moved from one place to the next - not treated right in most of them, ran away from some. She went from an innocent little girl who just wanted to be loved to a girl full of so much anger she joined a gang to a level-headed young lady, still a bit angry but keeping that anger under control whenever possible so she could get through her days with no drama. Her new attitude was thanks to Felicia. Felicia was Kate's math tutor at first and because Felicia saw the good in her and helped her to see her potential, they became best friends.
It was summertime, Felicia wasn't around and Kate was really missing her. Then here comes Naleejah. Kate wasn't looking to replace Felicia as her best friend - no one else could possibly do that; they were way too close. But it was good to have someone else to do things with while Felicia was away.
Kate was a friend to Naleejah, fighting her battles and whatnot, but Naleejah had no clue how to be a friend to Kate. This promiscuous girl had her eyes on Charles, a guy Kate had known since grade school and started crushing on in eighth grade. Naleejah also wasn't the best person for Kate to be around if she wanted to stay focused on becoming a better person. Naleejah did help Kate change her outer appearance from tomboy to "hot girl" but other than that she was not a good influence.
Kate did have good foster parents who truly cared about her, but with all she'd been through in her young life it took her a while to figure that out; she had trust issues. She was also blessed to have her social worker, Tisha, on her side. Like Felicia, Tisha encouraged Kate to want more out of life. She looked out for Kate and always had her best interests in mind.
This was a good book; a real page turner! Although things that Kate went through as a foster child saddened me, I enjoyed reading her story and the way she told it was so entertaining. I liked the way she talked. I liked that she had a whole lot of common sense. I liked how she was trying so hard to do the right thing. True, she made bad choices sometimes, couldn't quite resist temptation, but she learned from her mistakes. I liked the way she spoke up for herself, and I loved her spunk!
Hot Girl is very well-written. The whole story flowed so nicely and the characters and situations are believable. There were parts that made me laugh and I always appreciate a good laugh. I highly recommend Dream Jordan's debut novel.
Parents: There's very little profanity in this book, however, there are sexual situations; nothing too graphic, though.

The author did an amazing job of capturing Kate's feelings and successfully translating them to readers. This story especially pulled me in because I'm a social worker. This book has many lessons about anger management and promiscuity in it. It also addresses peer pressure and abandonment issues that a lot of adolescents have to cope with. I was pleased that Kate made the right decision regarding Charles. Naleejah was toxic for Kate and she was overly superficial. This character appeared to suffer from mental health issues. I definitely recommend this book to other book lovers. Especially because I finished it in one day.
JUST DO IT
This scintillating novel is a must read! I finished it in a day. I believe it is definitely intended for a teen audience but I loved every second of it. The witty and laugh out loud narration by Kate was my favorite part of all. If I ever write a book I always say it would be in this particular manner that this author so eloquently portrayed. Kate learns so many lessons that anyone reading this book would be forced to acknowledge and hopefully learn from. The one thing that comes to mind while reading this book was what my mother used to always ask me, "If "so and so" jumped off a bridge would you?" You can't always do what your friends do, or be a follower and Kate realized this before it was too late. I will be passing this novel on to my younger siblings for sure.

Despite its less than sophisticated title, this book is a wonderful work of young adult literature. Readers will instantly fall in love with the gritty, determined protagonist Kate who has risen above a rough upbringing in the foster care system. It is through her voice that she relates the real struggles of girls trying to navigate social and relationship pressures during their teeanage years when so much is at stake regarding their futures. This should be on the bookshelf of every high school and middle school library.
The Apotheoses of Lacspor
I definitely recommend this book!

I was immediately interested in all of the characters. The main character, Kate, a foster child, shows us a realistic view of the temptations that many teenagers contend with - drugs, sex, dishonesty, etc. We see a teenager who, in spite of her own often unstable and forlorn existence, manages to see the wisdom in both avoiding peer pressure and staying committed to the things in her life that will lead to her ultimate independence and success. This is a great example for all teenagers.

Through Kate, I felt what it is like to be a foster child - the loneliness, the instability, the fear, the pain, the need to love and feel loved, to know that there are people you can trust...

I found Hot Girl to be very insightful and enjoyable.
