Teen Book Review: Courtin’ Jayd

Courtin’ Jayd by L. Divine

In this book Drama High: Courtin’ Jayd, by L. Divine, Jayd is stuck in a love triangle between Rah and Jeremy. One of Jayd’s best friends Mickey is pregnant and Mickey doesn’t know if her boyfriend or her secret lover Nigel which is jade’s best friend is the father of her baby. So Mickey is not speaking to Jayd because she thinks Nigel shouldn’t be informed about not being the father. Misty is Jayd’s ex friend, Misty does everything in her power to expose Jayd’s linage. Rah has a baby by a girl named Trish. Trish uses the baby to get what she wants from Rah which is for him not to be with Jayd. I enjoyed the drama in this book. I also enjoyed the characteristics of the characters.
