Brimming with the same spirited sense of style and magic as
So Raven. Drama
High introduces a fun, brazen new series featuring a young
sistah who's learning that life in the 'hood is nothing compared to
life in high school.
Proudly hailing from Compton, USA, sixteen-year-old Jayd
Jackson is no stranger to drive-by shootings. Street-smart, she's
nobody's fool -- least of all KJ's, the most popular and
cutest basketball jock at South Bay High, aka Drama High. Yes, it's a
fact, Jayd fell hard for his player ways for a time, but now that KJ's
shown his true colors -- dumping Jayd because she refused to give up
the cookies -- she's through with him and his game playing for good.
Jayd just wants to start her Junior year of high school drama
free. But wanting ain't getting, especially at a place like Drama High,
a predominantly white high school in a wealthy part of Los Angeles,
where Jayd and 30 other Compton kids get bussed to daily. Jayd's first
day back to school, KJ's new girlfriend, Trecee, steps to her wanting
to fight. Egged on by Misty, Jayd's former best friend-turned-nemesis,
Trecee wants to make Jayd understand that KJ is off limits -- even if
she has to do it with her fists. With the fight set for Friday, and the
sistah drama at an all time high, Jayd is about to learn who's really
got her back and more importantly, when she's got to watch it. But at
least she can always count on Mama, and her mystical bag of tricks.
offers a tantalizing story. Jayd and her laugh-out-loud funny
assessment of life, along with her quirky cast of friends and her
magical family make for an irresistible, can't-put-it-down read.
