4.0 out of 5 stars After Tupac and D Foster, September 14, 2008
This book is about two girls(Neeka and the narrator) who meet another girl named D Foster. All three of them share a common love for sounds by a singer named Tupac. The other common thing that the girls share is an irregular family. The father of the narrator left her and her mom a long time ago, Neeka's gay brother is in jail for a crime he didn't commit, and D? Well, she's been in and out of foster homes for a while.

They become great friends, and everything is going pretty well until Tupac goes to jail and gets shot. He doesn't die, but the girls feel that a certain part of their own selves has died. He gets shot more and more, and continues to survive, until something happens that is much more drastic to the girls. D's mother wants her back. None of them want D to leave, but D herself wants to try life with her mom. So, she goes with her mom and doesn't come back for awhile. While D is gone, Neeka's brother is let out of jail, so they have a coming back party for him. Suddenly, D shows up with her mom. She says that they will be leaving. They all say their goodbyes, and D leaves. One day, they hear that Tupac got shot again. On the same day, D calls. She doesn't think that Tupac can live any longer. She gives the girls her phone number, and later they hear that Tupac finally died. They try to call D, but her phone just rings and rings.

This book is a book about friendship, about being different, and about survival. For anyone who enjoys a good book, this is a must read.
