Now Jamee is a target, and someone is texting lies and pictures of her a Jamee Wills never expected Vanessa Pierce and her friends to go this far. Nov 18, Bmoore rated it really liked it.

The character changed in many ways one big way that I believe that jamee changed is because instead of trying to follow up behind someone else footprints which is really a bad idea she thought to herself that the girls that she wanted to be like was a very bad role model so she decided to be the people that where in her shoes before role model. Cheerleading is the one thing that Jamee excels in and really enjoys doing.


She is married and has two daughters. This was challenging because I had to read it a few times to know who said what. Vanessa becomes an evil conniving person that humiliates both girls. Has the blandness of books written in the 70s.

I recommend this book to the people who are struggling in their life because this book might help you with your problems. Dez wanted her to be the girl with the bad reputation. Then at home nobody cared about her. What an asshole he is. I dislike people that act like that. I learned that the Bluford series was developed to appeal to the intermediate to advanced reader while keeping the content appealing to a high schooler when really it is written to the 5th grade level.

I didnt understand why they cared if it didnt consern them. Not up to the high standards of today’s writing. So Jamie started to prettt up for Angle.
