Jason & Kyra
Summary: Jason is a basketball star and one of the most popular guys in school. Brainy Kyra isn't, but she doesn't much care what other people think. Under normal circumstances, Jason and Kyra would live in their separate worlds until graduation. But fate intervenes, and the unlikely duo is paired up for a class project. Although preconceived notions abound on both sides, Kyra soon realizes that Jason is not the dumb jock she anticipated. And Jason finds himself telling Kyra things he can't even tell his best friend. As the two become close and eventually start to fall in love, no one in school can believe it, especially Jason's ex-girlfriend, who is determined to get him back. Being together means navigating the obstacles that are coming their way-but staying apart may be impossible. Dana Davidson is a high school teacher who was the 2001 winner of the Newsweek WDIV Outstanding Teacher Award. This is her first book for young adults.
Review: From the moment I read the first page in this book, I could tell it would not be easy for me to put this book down easily. The way the author describes the thoughts and feelings of the main characters in this book makes the story come to life like it is right in front of your eyes. The best aspect of this book is the love story that just makes you melt. It is great at portraying how love can overcome all odds and criticisms while making each individual in the relationship even stronger and much closer. This is a great book to read and it relates a lot to teenagers and young adults.
Favorite Quote: "But what I envy most is the love you give to others. Your such a good person and you change me for the better."
