November Blues

By Sharon Draper
Reviewed by Tyra
Seventeen-year-old November Nelson is beautiful with cocoa brown skin and long, wavy, black hair that flows with the wind, and is one of the smartest kids in school. What more could anyone ask for, right? Well…all of a sudden things began to change when all of her dreams and goals come crashing down on her in an instant.

"What's an eight-letter word that means I've screwed up my life forever?" Can you guess? Yes, she's pregnant. Not only that, something happens to the father of her child. Old friends and new friends are by her side through it all—to help her through the rest of high school filled with trash-talking teenagers.

This story is not only about November, but also about her boyfriend's cousin Jericho Prescott. Jericho is a sincere, fun, trumpet playing, football player who is there the most to help her out and be the father figure in her child's life. The only question is: will he have time to be there for her in the end as he continues the rest of his high school football career?

November's confusing, breathtaking story in November Blues by Sharon Draper will have your eyes locked in amazement. Anyone would enjoy reading this fictional story. You never know what's going to happen next with all its twists and turns. I highly recommend it!
