Quote from favorite character
November is taking to a hospital, and finds out her baby is two months early. Everyone with her is there hoping everything turns out good. Time goes by and she goes on to giving birth to a beautiful baby girl, naming her Sunshine.
November Blues mainly takes place in a suburban high school. Her school is big and many students attend.
Quote for setting:
"The death of sixteen-year-old Joshua Prescott has rocked Fredrick Douglas High School to it's core."
Point of view:
First person. Both November and Jericho are telling the story.
Most memorable moment:
My most memorable moment of this book was when November gave birth. I Chose this because everybody was worried about her and her baby. It had a good outcome because the premature baby came out healthy and she was named Sunshine.
"I love being with him. But I didn't love him- not deep down inside where those feelings are suppose to be."
This quote interests me because somehow brings us to reality. Many people live in lies and break people for not being truthful of their real feelings in the beginning.
I absolutely recommend this book to teenagers. It shows a lot of conflicts that can be real in our world. This is a type of book every teenager will enjoy. I know that because when I started reading this book I Couldn't put it down. I highly recommend that you read November Blues.
