Book Description: Nikki Turner has it all: she is an honor student, has a popular boyfriend and is a star dancer. However; never is there a time that a smile crosses her face. With a constant frown and a sharp tongue, she doesn’t let anyone get a rise out of her, especially her teacher Cassie McGregor. When it is revealed that Nikki is homeless and in the foster care system, Cassie, who is a certified foster mother, is chosen to be her temporary guardian, an agreement they both object from the start. As their animosity begins to deplete, Nikki and Cassie realize that what they’ve always wanted just might bring them closer.

BRT Review Title:  Heart warming but needs character development
BRT Review: I was pleasantly surprised to find that this new author read was a good one. I found the story of Nikki the sassy but intelligent high school student who is later discovered to be homeless to be well written. The teen dialogue was believable and although some occurrences were a little far-fetched, Jackson did a good job of bringing Nikki and Cassie’s world together in a believable and enjoyable way. There are a few intended tear jerker moments but a little more character development in Cassie’s background in addition to Nikki’s would have dredged up more feeling from me in trying situations. All things considered, this was a good read and I’m sure there will be more good reads to come from this young author. Good review talk! But you be the judge.
