By Jennifer Coissiere "The Tough Critic" VINE VOICE on December 29, 2011
Format: Paperback
Four teenagers, with very different backgrounds aiming for the stars have one thing in common, they all attend Harlem Academy of Creative and Performing Arts (CAPA), a very prestigious school. These students have obstacles they will need to overcome in order to be able to achieve their ultimate goals. Uptown Dreams by Kelli London is a journey for these four young adults dreaming big.

La-La is a songstress with beautiful long hair. Her mother enrolls her into CAPA, because it is the way for them to have riches and get out of the hood. However, La-La wishes she could make her sister, Remy, well again. When she arrives at CAPA, La-La comes face-to-face with the one person she cannot stand, Nakeeda, a girl who believes her voice is the best between the two. When La-La stops being afraid of Nakeeda and challenges her to a sing-off, everyone is interested to see who wins. The loser will lose more than just the title of the best singer. Who will take the prize?

Ziggy wants nothing more than to be a choreographer, but in his family a man who dances means he is gay. Ziggy is far from being gay; he loves girls too much. He has his eyes on La-La. While he is trying to get to know her a little better, Ziggy is always thinking of ways to stay in CAPA without his family finding out. He has to come up with his own tuition. The vending table that he owns and is operated by his brother is not bringing in as much as it used to. What will he do to continue to expound his craft?

Reese is an accomplished musician. There are not many instruments that she cannot play. Her mother is the director of CAPA; her mission is to get Reese ready for Juilliard. However, Reese really wants to produce music, but CAPA does not offer a program allowing her to build her skills in that area.
