  1. This book was about a basketball player who had two visitors that sleepover in her room and she doesn't like it. My favorite character in this book was Lucy Wu because she is really good at basketball. I liked this book because I tried to figure out what would happen next. You would like this book if you like long books.

  2. This book is a page flipper, it brings you right into the story and once you start reading it you just want to continue till the end. I love this book because Lucy Wu and her story about how her family was chinese and how now she is getting forced to leave basketball behind and start chinese class. It makes me realize how it would be if I was at her place.This book is very original and I cant wait to read more books from this author.

  3. This book is very amazing to me because she goes thru alot with a person she barely knows, but at the end she turns out to like the person! It also teaches you a lesson but im not going to tell you its a seceret.
