This book for me is one of the best African-American books that I have ever read. Tracie Howard showed how bad consequences can really get. Also, she shows that the term “karma” is not a tale. This book is mostly for high school students due to the vulgar language that this book has. This book also shows what not to do to not hurt someone. In other words, this book is like a guide for not hurting others. I recommend this book to many individuals, because this book is a “pow-wow” book. Never Kiss and Tell breaks exciting new ground in African- American fiction.
