    I believe this book was well written. Although it stereotypically portrayed teens of color. Then storyline is wonderfully my only question is when does the 3rd book come out? "Dashing Pearls"

    From the opening scenes to the closing lines, Get Ready for War is a study of cliches and stereotypes the likes of which I don't believe I have ever seen before in one book! I was so sadly disappointed with the writing and the characters. But by far the worst thing to me was all the negative African American stereotypes this book offered up. London, Heather (Wu-Wu to her fans), Rich and Spencer are the Pampered Princesses of Hollywood High Academy. The four frenemies have been toppled from their lofty position and are all falling faster and faster with no stop sign in sight. London is trying to find her girls but instead finds a group of younger girls sitting at the Pampered Princess' table in the cafeteria. After a wordy confrontation, London is compelled to start a brawl with the young girls, the whole while thinking that is only Heather, Rich and Spencer could handle their own drama, this wouldn't be happening.While London is fighting for her and the rest of the Pampered Princess' money given rights to be the head clique in their school, Heather, Rich and Spencer are off fighting their own battles that include pregnancy, pill addiction, two timing boyfriends as well as parental problems. Can London, Rich, Spencer and Heather pull themselves and their friendship together enough to pull themselves out of the downward spiral they find themselves in or will they end up at the bottom of the loser pile?I felt the characters all lacked something, they all seemed very one dimensional. After reading so many negative things about each of the four lead characters (London, Rich, Heather and Spencer) I found it hard to find anything good about any of them or any of the other characters mentioned in the book. None stood out in any way and I just felt indifferent toward them all.The storyline was one that has been covered many times before and there was nothing here that made it stand out. It was horribly predictable and there were no surprises. What was much worse than the unsympathetic, one dimensional characters and the very slowwww moving, predictable plot, were all the negative stereotypes that were mentioned over and over again. And yes, I keep mentioning them simply because I was so thoroughly disgusted with them! This is not a novel I would recommend to anyone! I received my copy through LibraryThing and my review was unsolicited.

    I got this book in exchange for an honest review from NetGalleyI think this might actually be the worst book i ever read. Its like Ni-Ni Simone took every stereotypical black reference ever made and put it into a book. I only read the first couple of chapters before i gave up because i knew it wasn't going to get any better. As a young African American Woman i do not walk around saying "clutching Pearls" nor do i have a nickname such as "Wu-Wu" i most definitely would not want my friends to make "free Wu-Wu" T-shirts if i went to rehab for overdosing on my grandmama's skittles aka her heart disease medicine. And girls just a heads up if you leave him more than seven messages the only thing he could ever possibly say is "why you sweatin me?" This little gem was comical in how bad it was, i wonder if the author understands she could possibly offend her audience with the way she portrays African American girls. Now i didn't like this book, Hell i couldn't even finish it, but if you like real housewives of Atlanta and Degrassi then you should pick this up. But if you are like me who can't stand either i recommend you run far far away from this book if you ever see it.

    Clutching pearls! Clutching pearls! In this highly anticipated sequel to the 2012 book “Hollywood High”, Ni-Ni Simone and Amir Abrams bring it in a way that’s never been brought before. The Pampered Princesses are back and this time they are ready for war!“Hollywood High: Get Ready for War” was a wild ride from beginning to end. I finished this book in about a day and a half. The characters were young, fresh, and new. The dialogue kept me laughing throughout the entire story. Although this is a teen book, it touches upon some very real issues such as teen pregnancy, abortion, emotional abuse, and drug abuse. The one thing that bothered me about this book was that none of the characters were particularly likeable. They all had their own hidden agendas and were clearly out for self. With that being said, I am looking forward to reading the next installment and seeing what happens next. Carla TownsAAMBC Reviewer

    After reading Hollywood High, that brought the funny non stop, I just knew Get Ready for War would be just as hilarious. However, I was disappointed. GRfW did have some funny spots, not much drama and dragged a bit for my taste. I flew through the first book and I creeped through this one. I knew at every turn what the secrets were and thought I'd actually get the drama but to my dismay, up to the very last page, I learned that it will be reserved for the next installment. I missed Heather in GRfW. She didn't have a strong presence in this one but from the ending I see that she will be in the lead in the next.***I will say that Get Ready for War reveals many scandalous and juicy secrets of the girls and their mothers through out the book. And a bam-bop-pop at the end. lolI was given this ebook to read and review from the publisher and Netgalley.

    I'm not even more than 100 pages in and I decided not to finish the book. Why must every YA book by an African American writer have to have the latest slang along with an over dramatic plot that makes me want to throw the book out the window. As a POC, I am tired of these kinds of books. There are so many stereotypes in this book I didn't even know what to be offended at anymore. (view spoiler)[I don't feel anything for any of the character, especially the one who fighting with her mother (physically) after she got an abortion.(hide spoiler)]The constant use of the word "ho's" and "bitches" to describe her peers reminds too much of a typical conversation with the girls in my youth group at church.

    The dialogue is full of modern teenage slang that I found to be comical. The young main characters are very self-absorbed, spoiled, wealthy African American girls. Drama, drama, drama, these girls are full of it! This circle of so-called friends have quite a few secrets that fuel these girls against each other. I have a sense of humor, so I found "Hollywood High: Get Ready for War", funny and entertaining, this book definitely reads as a comedy/drama. Laugh and enjoy! (I was given this book in exchange for a honest review)

    I know that these girls are really stupid and make us teen black girls look stupid but I actually liked the book. And I think that the girls around where I live actually do think like these girls. I think the book would've been better for those kind of girls to read if she had actually put a good hidden message in it. So far it just seems like she is promoting the actions of these girls. Overall it's stupid funny.
