She was the only girl Jamal cared about, the one who saw through his player act. I smiled at her and she smiled back.

Emako came from a hard family in South Central Los Angeles. The different point of views added a lot of suspense also. She was an amazing singer, already offered a record deal. Eddie wanted to go to Arizona State, Monterey wanted to be a famous singer, and Jamal and Savannah really just hoped to finish high school. This story was written from different point of views from Emako’s best friend Monterey, Eddie who was a friend of hers and also Monterey’s crush, Savannah who never really liked Emako and there was also Jamal who was willing to end his player-ways to be with her.


Monterey, Savannah, Jamal, and Eddie have never had much to do with each other until Emako Blue shows up at chorus practice, but just as the lives of the five Los Angeles high school students become intertwined, tragedy tears them apart. The best part was I think is that Emako herself never had her own voice in the story which makes her seem like a legend. And i did not like this book because it was very sad and depressing.


Everyone who had their own chapter if you notice. What happens when a drive-by shooting goes wrong?

Her friend Monterrey, Jamal and Savannah all attend. Emako Blue was a book that made you think because it made think what if some of these events in the book were to happen to you.

Monterey is thrilled to have her as a best friend. Monterey has gained the confidence to go into a arelationship with a boy named Eddie. This book didn’t have any inappropriate scenes or moments, so any mature reader could read it.


Everyone who had their own …more I believe all the children who had anything to do with Emako which would of course be Eddie,Monterey,Jamal,and Savahnna. Why do such disproportionate numbers of young urban males become members of gangs, obtain firearms, and end up murdering each other and innocent bystanders on a daily basis?

Even so, many teens will blje this for the wrenching story and for the young, up-to-the-minute African American voices that, like the characters in Janet McDonald’s novels, ask honest questions about friendship, race, love, and how best to navigate dangerous neighborhoods, self-absorbed parents, and their own flaws–and realize their dreams.

Monterey is an Everygirl: Then i would recommend this book to young women who are growing up and trying to make it in life.

Emako Blue

In Emako Blue, I found that the characters in the story were more interesting than the drama of the story. Emako was looking forward to a bright emaako. Beleive me you won’t want to put this book down for not even one second!
