I recommend this book to anyone who likes stories about peoples life and learning a lesson throughout the story. This book is Realistic Fiction because this can happen to anybody. In this story there was a girl named Jamie Wills and she was becoming a freshmen at Blue Ford high school were her big sister Darcy attended to. That part was suspenseful. I found this book to be moderately entertaining, but believed it to have ve Folan, Karyn. Jun 20, Renee. That phrase–universal theme–is a favorite of mine, but it truly is the key to making young adults connect with certain books.
I was surprised when the teachers were telling her why cant you be as smart as your sister Darcy. As a high school cheerleader myself, I connected with the anxiety of tryouts and the need to balance those extra curriculars with time to study. This book and the book The Fallen by Karyn Langhorne Folan have one thing in common because at some point the main character was getting bullied too. Real teen moral questions and segments on bullying and reputation—great discussion points for my 6th graders.. I was surprised when the teachers were telling her why cant you be as smart as your sister Darcy, I thought that was pretty mean. I couldn’t understand why Jamee didn’t start to think that the girls that she wanted to be like at first was a bad idea because of the way that they act towards people like that should’ve gave jamee a clue that those girls were very mean and rude people anyway.
What Kind of World are You Buying?
I give her props. I would have to say that I would of been like Jamee in this book.
Nothing is going right for ninth-grader Jamee Wills: Darcy had a good reputation so everyone is expecting Jamee to be like her sister. Cheerleading is the one thing that Jamee excels in and really enjoys doing.
I would recommend this book to my friend Biana but she has a lot of drama going on in her life because shes in high school now she has many classes to take and the student break them selfs up as friends and she didn’t know what she was funnyfull of dramawhat table should she sit at ,or is she popular or not.
I thought this book was very good and awesome because I love books with a lot of action in them and this book was about how Jamee was getting bad grades and her sister Darcy always had good grades and people tell her why cant you be as smart as your sister and she has to bring her grades up if she wants to make the cheer squad.

Freshman Tales of 9th Grade Obsessions, Revelation Maybe I missed something while reading it. May 24, Sofia G. I couldn’t understand why Jamee didn’t start to think that the girls that she wanted to be like at first was a bad idea because of the way that they act towards people like that should’ve gave jamee a clue that those girls were very mean and rude people anyway.
I recommend this book to the people who are struggling in their life because this book might help you with your problems. Like in the book when Jamee wanted to explain to her parents the reason she was skipping her classes to help her get better grades, and to go to cheerleading practice, was to stand up for Angel Mcollister. Where Do Your Rig The story basically takes place at a h Have you ever went to a school that your sister just left or a school were people said you remind them or somebody else?
This book is just like all the other books but with new characters in each story. The way the characters talk go me confused and it was challenging.

Pretty Ugly (Bluford High, #18) by Karyn Langhorne Folan
However in the end both Jamee and Angel win and Vanessa is left with nothing. When the insults turn nasty, Jamee tries to stop vharacters.
I stood up for the girl and told the bullies to leave her alone, and then they started to pick on me for a while and I told the teachers and they left us alone. Finally, a girl who stands up to the boy.
Mar 10, Kennedy rated it really liked it. I like reading books about realistic fiction, drama and love this is a great book to read when your going through a lot especially in schooltakes your mind off things. I would recommend my book Sseries ugly. There are lots of stories that I can relate to in high school and middle.
Mar 03, Monique rated it liked it Blufkrd At school her grades are falling apart because cheerleading tryouts are coming soon and Jamee wants to be a Bluford cheerleader,but she also needs to retake a math test she failed so that she pass the 9th grade and be a bluford cheerleader.
Oct 24, Kevin rated it really liked it. It also made me feel happy since the girls found a way to end what Vanessa was doing. Jamie’s parents had kicked her off the cheer leading team because of her failing grades.
I still have a lot of those books and I do pull them out to nostalgically read from time to time. Her parents and older sister were so caught up in their own lives that no one took any time to really listen to Jamee. Jamee is A freshman at Bluford High School.
Thanks for telling us about the problem. Jamie had stuck up for Angel and now she was also a victim of getting bullied by Vanessa and her crew.
The novel Pretty Ugly is mainly about Jamee Willis a student at Bluford High School,who is struggling with friend,family,and school work issues. At the serries practice she saw a girl that she had not saw before and her name was Angle McAllister a new student at school.
Living in the shadow of Darcy Wills, her sister Junior she has to find a way to be noticed and stop being associated with characetrs sister, and the only way to do that is to join the cheerleading team the one thing seriez Darcy cant compete with her in.
It would be so easy for Jamee to walk away from Angel and join the other side just to save her reputation. Pretty Ugly is a book about a girl named Jamee Wills.
Book Wind: Pretty Ugly: Bluford Series #18 by Karen Langhorne Folan
The reason why I say this book is realistic fiction is because this book is about a girl named jamee that has been bullyed because she’s not like verybody else like she’s not as smart as the other girls that she would like to be so that she can blend in with everybody else. Watch this video to see a demonstration of how to write and publish to the Book Wind blog.
Angel thought of I think this book teaches a very good lesson to people that zeries listen to others and only care about the bad things that are happening. So she tried solving it calmly and not the way she would end up losing.
So if you want to read a more relating book to yourself. I reccomend this book to 7 and older you learn a lot if lessons by reading it. The amount of drama in this ubly makes me want to read what happens next.
