Synopsis

A YALSA Quick Pick for Reluctant Young Adult Readers

What happens when the girl everyone least expects gets the guy all the chicks want...?

she can rock Apple Bottoms jeans and stilettos like nobody’s business, but she’s got her share of issues. It’s not easy being the thickest one in her clique or hiding that her rebellious twin sister Toi is playing wifey to the neighborhood thug. And Seven is definitely not happy that she’s feelin’ the school’s hottest baller, Josiah, especially since he’s dating her high maintenance girlfriend, Deeyah. But when Deeyah decides to play Josiah and his worst enemy against each other, she’ll have everyone facing off in the worst way. The question is can Seven try and set things right or does she end up trying to save herself from major heartbreak?

She whipped up her first novel, Shortie Like Mine, in two weeks, and has been in love with writing ever since. Shortie was the first of Ni-Ni's books to be selected by YALSA (Young Adult Library Services Association) as a Quick Pick for Reluctant Young Adult Readers, and it's also a Virginia Readers' Choice Selection.

While the strengths of the novel include strong characterizations and colorful contemporary language, the pacing is rushed, the story feels crowded with too many characters and subplots and the ending is sudden and anticlimactic.
