Flamingnet Student Book Reviewer  TKono
"L.A. Summer" by Sheryl Mallory-Johnson is a highly disappointing read. It chronicles mainly the story of three teenage girls. Accessory characters are mentioned, but the focus is on Stacy's old best friend Mikki visiting for the summer only to find Stacy has a new best friend named Charlette. Anyway, all three have boyfriends for the moment and tend to only discuss boys. Over-the-top drama ensues as the girls argue. There is little suspense, and the plot is highly predictable. Sadly, the whole story can be summed up from the back cover.

Derogatory, sexually perverse, and grammatically incorrect, this book is a train wreck. The teenage girls are described by how much curves they have. Sentence fragments flood the pages, and slang words from the eighties are profuse. Girls give up their virginity in horrific detail. While set in LA, the story is anything but classy. The African American characters are just further stereotyped as hoodlums.

perverse graphic nature

*****In light of the above comments by our student reviewer, Sheryl Mallory-Johnson has been invited to submit another copy of L.A. SUMMER to us so we can have a second Flamingnet student reviewer read and present another opinion of her book. We have not yet received this second review copy from Ms. Mallory-Johnson but hope she will send it to us soon.
