Truely there were so many parts that reminded me of the movie The Truman Show, when people would just suddenly bust out into a commerical in the middle of a conversation.
"Eden slammed her M.A.C Chesnut Lip Pencil down on her thigh and shot Marisol a look." pg 99
Really? Couldn't she just slam her lip pencil down?Read more ›
The characters include Tangie, Skye, Eden (Skye's older sister), Trey (Eden's ex-boyfriend), C.J., Izzy, Nick, and Regina. Those are just the important characters, too!
Louis B. Armstrong is New York's most prestigious performing arts school, where anyone who has a chance of being a star attends high school. The book is their stories of how they got there, and what happens during the first week at the school.
The only thing I didn't like about the story was that the author skipped around a lot. In the beginning it was hard to tell who was who, but as you keep reading it gets easier.
This is another summer must-read!

For what it's worth, I think it's a pretty realistic portrayal of where 'kids' are today. If a parent is worried their kids will mimic the behaviors in the book, censorship of reading material isn't their biggest problem...
Ms. Williams' second book, like the first, is what reading is all about-- getting engrossed in the story, getting into the characters, and wishing for a sequel.
I've already pre-ordered the next in the series, and I'm not a teen!
THE IT CHICKS is likely to be well-received among young adult readers, however, parents may have reservations. Much of the plot seemed more appropriate for an older audience, however, because the story is set in a high school, more mature readers would probably not be interested. Issues such as sex, drug and alcohol abuse, and sexual identity issues were included in the story, which in itself isn't a terrible thing. However, it seemed that underage alcohol use, drug use, promiscuity, and the like were widely accepted, "normal" teenage behavior. Further, the plot never seemed to really hone in on the ill-effects of such actions. In addition, THE IT CHICKS has a large number of characters making it difficult to keep up with who is who. The plot would have been better paced and it would have been easier for readers to identify with the characters had there been more character development and fewer characters. Finally, the abrupt ending left a lot of loose ends, and plenty of room for a sequel. Despite the weaknesses, Tia Williams has penned a novel that is wrought with enough drama to keep teen readers interested.
