Hip-Hop High School
Theresa Anderson is smarter than anyone knows. But with the example of her superachiever older brother, Andre, towering above her and temptations of the hip-hop kulture floating everywhere, navigating her way through the dangerous maze of high school becomes a precarious, roller-coaster adventure. With her parents and her teachers always on her case, and her best friend living the “wild style” life, Theresa turns to hip-hop for comfort and inspiration. Her favorite artists seem to understand her when no one else does.
Everything changes when a new man comes into Theresa’s life. Devon might have a tough guy reputation, but behind it lays a blazing ambition for academic success. Together, Devon and Theresa set off on a quest to beat the SAT, prove they are not merely another “urban statistic” and earn their way into top colleges. However, when gang life intrudes and tragedy strikes Devon, Theresa faces a pile of unfinished college applications and a heart full of unrealized dreams – and time is running out…
In this gripping and inspirational sequel to The Hoopster, Andre Anderson’s sister Theresa tells, in her own hip-hop flava’d voice, how she reaches down deep, rises up strong and takes on one of the baddest monsters in high school – the SAT.
