Format: Paperback
In Work What You Got, Hayden Grant is entering her sophomore year in college and is ready to pledge Beta Gamma Pi, her mom's sorority. Freshman year, she and her roommates were at every single function hosted by the Beta's, so it's a given that they are all going to be on line together. However, when Hayden returns to school, she learns that her friends may have other plans.

While Hayden is trying to pledge, maintain her grades, and keep the peace at home, her former study partner Creed makes his intentions known. With both of them pledging, they believe that they can juggle all of the craziness. Will that hold true when Beta Gamma Pi consumes Hayden's entire life?

Appealing was the history related to the sororities as well as God's presence and how when they were down someone suggested prayer. Regrettably, everything else was strained and discomfited. I had a very difficult time accepting the authenticity of the story and characters. While Work What You Got does have plenty of drama, I'm eager for an easier flow and tremendous growth in book two.

Format: Paperback
Hayden Grant is starting her sophomore year and has one major goal in mind - to become a member of Beta Gamma Pi sorority. Ever since her mother pledged, she has wanted to become a member, and redeem her mom for pledging "paper" rather than go through the undergraduate process, while also becoming a part of a sisterhood. Hayden is surprised to find her friends no longer plan to pledge with her and she has to go at it alone, but she is not deterred.

Soon, Hayden finds herself in the midst of a pledge process and making decisions she never thought she would. In the midst of the drama, her leadership characteristics surface, but there's another side of her that takes over as well. Every one around her seems to notice but her, which causes even more problems. And if the drama with sorority life isn't enough, Hayden's new boyfriend also brings challenges and questions to her life. Before it's over, Hayden must learn several important lessons in order to succeed and be the woman she is trying to become.

WORK WHAT YOU GOT is the first novel in Stephanie Perry Moore's new inspirational teen series, Betta Gamma Pi. The first installment is full of drama teens, even those who aren't pledging a sorority, can relate to. She offers real-life situations with real life solutions without the preachy tone found in some inspirational novels. Moore also does a good job developing her plot and her characters. I may not be a teen, but I'm already looking forward to what will happen in the next installment. Check this one out and I suspect you will be too.

Format: Paperback
Western Smith College sophomore Hayden Grant looks forward to pledging for the Beta Gamma Pi sorority along with her BFFs. However she is taken aback when Myra, Bridget, and Chandra decide not to join her at Beta Gamma Pi; the four roommates seem to be drifting apart. Although she has issues with the hazing, Hayden goes along with the herd mentality saying nothing. She regrets not voicing her reservations when a pledge nearly dies from a particularly nasty assault led by Keisha the Betas Big Sister Mean Machine.

Many of the sisters are expelled leaving Hayden to become the local chapter president; a position she did not want at least at this time. She also deals with her attraction to Creed who is pledging to a fraternity in which Hayden's ex-boyfriend Butch is president. She does not want to cause Creed any problems. As she works on clearing the name of her sorority, and tries to resolve her relationship with Creed and her three BFFs, Hayden depends on her Christian faith to guide her to do what is ethically right.

This is an interesting young adult relationship drama that encourages readers to not just join the line if it feels wrong. Hayden who tells the tale is a solid lead character as she regrets not speaking out against hazing. Her friend Penelope is one of the Betas kicked out though she did not participate in the hazing; standing silently on the sidelines doing nothing is almost as bad as performing the abusive deeds. Although the use of Ebonics especially by professionals like Hayden's uncle who is the college president is a detractor (personally prefer professionals sound educated like Obama does), fans will enjoy the first Beta Gamma Pi inspirational tale.
