I read the book 16 Isn’t Always Sweet, by Cassandra Carter. It was about a girl named Jordan who turns 16 years old and has some tough times with her best friend Adrienne and her parents. Jordan gets picked to be in a video of her favorite rapper. Her best friend gets really jealous of the attention she gets and her parents get mad because they told her not to even audition for the video. Jordan even starts dating Adrienne’s ex-boyfriend and goes to their Spring Social with him. It was a fun and interesting book. I could relate to the characters and understand the pressure Jordan feels to fit in at school. I would recommend this book to any girl in middle school.
