REAL AS IT GETS
Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary Young Adult
The third Rumor Central installment has danger, drama and romance. Maya is still self-centered and thinks of herself as invincible. Her cousin Travis is a shaky character who brings the drug drama to her home. An exciting read.
After getting in trouble in Brooklyn, Maya’s cousin Travis is sent to Miami to stay with her. Like siblings, they are in constant conflict. When Travis starts selling drugs to help with his mother’s hospital bills, Maya is determined to get him back on a straight and narrow path. After several friends caught up in the K2 drug scene suffer severe consequences, Maya goes undercover to find the kingpin behind it all.
