True Believer
I personally think that True Believer is a powerful book for all the teenagers. The way Virginia Wolff described the ideas and believes of the teens, it is absolutely great! I seriously recommend everyone to read this book. As you can see the different perspects of life a teenager go through. This is the message she is trying to give across and she has emphasised on because it tells you that teen life is not easy. I read the first review by LALALA and I think that he is right. [edited to remove plotspoiler]. The other thing that will attract you to read this book is that it is not written in a formal writing, the writing is more friendly and informal which is easy to understand. So I think everyone should read this book because it made me believe in the possibility of anything which you don't expect.

True Believer is one of the best books I have read this year. Once I picked it up it was hard to put down. This book relates to teenagers like me and issues they have in highschool such as problems with friends, family, school, money, and dating. Although I have not read the first part of the Make Lemonade Trilogy, this book has inspired me to do so.Text

True Believer is a really good book, but i'm going to give it a four because La Vaughn sometimes gets off topic and at the beginning it was really confusing. Maybe if she just got to the topic then it wouldn't have been so confusing, but this is only my opion, I don't know what others think. Another reason is, this book is kind of mushy at the middle and the end of the book.

I think that this is a really good book, but it got off topic everyonce in a while, and the plot was a little hard to find.

I gave this book a 4 because it was a great book but then again lead me to thinking different things besides the main topic! Other than that virginia did an excellent job on this book!

This book is amazing! At first, Jody and LaVaughn seem like the cutest thing ever! The dance, all the cute events, but then came chapter 61. I got so immensely confused, that I had to ask, Is Jody gay? I am so confused because of the note and everything! Please share! Thank you :)
