Ronette Bradley rocks when it comes to test taking, but her overall grades aren’t impressive. That’s why she is cleaning hotel rooms after high-school graduation. Worse yet, she is relegated to attending Chicagoland Community College while her hunky, upper-class boyfriend, Jayson, heads to D.C. and exclusive Houseman University. When she receives a last-minute call offering a partial scholarship to Houseman, she is determined to make the grade. Once on campus, Ronette’s new life is filled with meeting challenges and making decisions, such as handling a Black American Princess roommate, securing her tuition, and saving her relationship with Jayson. Despite some improbabilities in the fast-paced story line and a reliance on slang, reluctant readers will embrace this title in Gottesfeld’s new high/low urban fiction Campus Confessions series for its readability and “American dream” qualities. Give this to readers who enjoyed any of the Bluford High books. Grades 9-12. --Jeanne Fredriksen
