3.5 stars. It chicks- a black version of the Gossip girls...or is it? Hey, anything to get the kiddies to read, right? But Young adults books have changed since the 80's Sweet Valley High days. Teenagers nowadays apparently are smoking, drugging and sexing it up at thirteen and fourteen like it ain't no thang. This is likely the truth, but I'd think publishers would want to offer more positive books for this target audience-or at least warn parents somewhere on the cover if you see this book in the store and you're just picking up something that looks cute for teenager to read. I mean if I was a teenager and I read that this was what the cool kids were doing, then I'd be more inclined to do the same thing especially since this book doesn't ever show any reprecussions for making such decisions. So if you want to be cool, light up. As a writer, Ms. Williams main job is to engage and entertain and she does do this rather well, even if from time to time you get a little confused with so many characters. But where Ms. Williams went absolutely overboard was all the name brand dropping and make up tips. I mean,is Ms. Williams getting paid extra to put all these name brands in here? After Run DMC infamously promoting Addias and not getting a red dime, you'd think that we stop this nonsense. (Remember: Jay-Z similar incident with a liquor company he was promoting and come to find out the president of such company held distain for the entire hip hop community.)
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.

Really? Couldn't she just slam her lip pencil down?

IT CHICKS is definitely going to have to have a sequel! This book has the characters of Gossip Girl #1: A Novel by Cecily von Ziegesar (Gossip Girl) and the setting of the movie Step Up (Widescreen Edition)! That makes for one CRAZY book, let me tell you!

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!

A very engaging book! I couldn't put it down and read it almost non-stop. I found the story flowed and I enjoyed the characters, the witty dialogue, and the ending. Ms. Williams has a real talent for novel writing.

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!

It chicks is a very juicy, good read. Filled with drama, love, and friendship, this book is one you definitely need to read!!! The way Mrs.Williams engages her readers are incredible and makes you eat the story right up. The characters are all dynamic and have their flaws, but that what makes this book a whole lot of fun and entertaiment. I definitely cannot (I repeat) cannot wait to read Sixteen Candles (the sequel). Keep writing Mrs.Williams!!!!

Format: Paperback
THE IT CHICKS chronicles the lives of a group of classmates attending a prestigious performing arts school in New York. It is interesting to follow the diverse characters in their pseudo-friendships attempting to navigate the highly competitive school environment, dealing with their personal issues, and seeking friendship and acceptance from their peers. The book focuses primarily on Tangie, a shy, aspiring dancer who doesn't know her own value and her self-absorbed best friend Skye, who seems to mistreat everyone around her and get away with it, and Izzy, a mysterious free spirit. Each of the other characters in the clique have their own issues and the story revolves around the interplay among them.

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.
