Aug 8, 2015Jessie and her best friend, Shanty, are within weeks of graduating high school. Jessie can't wait to get on with her life and fulfill her dreams of becoming an architect. She is surprised to learn that her grandfather (whom she never got to know) was also an architect, and one that brought many benefits to her town of Muskegon. His vision helped build a much needed medical research facility.When Jessie notices a building the town has slated for demolition, her brain starts firing ideas at her. She creates a new use for the old building and puts her ideas onto paper. With the help of a local couple who encourage the area teens, Jessie is determined to see her ideas come to fruition. Jessie has had her eye on Dustin. But she's positive he doesn't even know she exists. To make matters worse, Dustin seems to show interest in her best friend! And then Russell, a smart, college, law-bound boy, starts to show interest in Jessie. Ms. Muhammad writes a story focusing on Jessie, a girl with a... More > strong and moral center. It was wonderful to read a story based in the city that doesn't have a depressing overtone. Reviewed by:Teens Read Too >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> As a reviewer, I am often asked to read and discuss books outside of my usual and accustomed reading area of interests. Most often this has not been a pleasant experience. There has been times that it was most difficult to render an unbiased and fair review on a book that I would not normally pick up off the shelf let alone read with enough care and concern to render an opinion as to its worthiness.I found this work to be most enjoyable. I was quickly captured by the charm of two teens as they wended their way through the intricacies that are life in the final days of a girl’s High School life. I found the story interesting and the character development exceptional. That Jessie and Shanty were life-long friends and were devoted to one another was obvious. Russell, Richard, Dustin and Crystal all had their places and all were part of growing up.Ms. Muhammad did a wonderful job of using the vernacular or black youth in a large city to bring her characters to life in a stirring and pleasing way. I eagerly look forward to the coming of the next chapter in this ongoing saga. Thomas D.Cantrall Reviewer Twangg1@yahoo.com www.ghostsofrubyridge.com< Less
