Well-written, funny, believable realistic fiction about girls of color: boy howdy, do we need more like this. (Full review at http://www.parenthetical.net/2011/08/18/review-teenie-christopher-grant-2010/) ( )

I think this was a perfect book for girls who are into books about drama
it's mainly based on a african american girl who is struggling to be popular but in the end things don't go the way she wanted them to go ( )

While this book had a slow start, it was easy-to-read and pretty true to life. I enjoyed the characters, but this was not my type of YA book. However, it would be excellent for a middle or high school girl to read. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0375861912, Hardcover)

High school freshman Martine (Teenie for short) is a good student, with a bright future ahead of her. She's desperate to be accepted into a prestigious study abroad program in Spain so that she can see what life is like beyond the streets of Brooklyn. She wouldn't mind escaping from her strict (though lovable) parents for awhile either. But when the captain of the basketball team starts to pay attention to her after she's pined away for him for months and Cherise, her best friend, meets a guy online, Teenie's mind is on anything but her schoolwork. Teenie's longtime crush isn't what he seemed to be, nor is her best friend's online love. Can Teenie get her act together in time to save her friendship with Cherise, save her grade point average so that she can study in Spain, and save herself from a potentially dangerous relationship?

Christopher Grant makes a stunning literary debut with this warmly told story about friends, family, and finding oneself.
