Jessica can be described as the ultimate master manipulator and stereotypical popular girl without a heart. As I re-read this book I am reminded of how much these books shape my world view of what high-school was supposed to be all about.
Of course once I finally made it to high-school I realized it wasn’t filled with half the amount of drama that was in this series.
The drama in the first book of the series was better than any real housewives episode. This book was filled with revenge, jealousy, adultery, and even a court battle. I read this in a day and enjoyed every minute of it.
Jessica the superficial twin really tried my nerves with her selfish manipulative behavior. She was really an over the top example of what teens girl should not be like (think Lindsey Lohan).
It was nice to see Elizabeth sort of stick up for herself in the end but she could have done better then just a minor water dunk. Her twin deserved a stiff smack in the face.
If you want to take a nice little trip on a hood adventure then this book it for you. I had never heard of this new genre of literature called urban lit. Reading this book was like seeing the heart and meaning behind rap music. I don’t pretend to know what they are really talking about when I am bouncing to a good Jay Z or Wakka Flokka song on the radio. After reading this three book series I now know. The last book was so good that I finished it in just two nights.
My Aunt gave the entire series to me to read a few months ago and I am so glad that I got to spend my Christmas break on this wild urban adventure. If you want a fun read that might also teach you a little bit about life in the hood(for lack of a better description) this is the series for you.
It was simply just a lot of fun. There were many characters and about 4 plots going on that all came together in the end. True To The Game gets the Makayla stamp of “readable”.
