Summary

Sparks will fly in this hip-hop-hot teen novel that mixes social protest and star-crossed romance, from Newbery Medal and Coretta Scott King Honor-winning author Kwame Alexander! He Said, She Said is perfect for fans of Walter Dean Myers and Rachel Vail alike. This paperback edition includes a Q&A with author Kwame Alexander.

He says: Omar "T-Diddy" Smalls has got it made--a full football ride to UMiami, hero-worship status at school, and pick of any girl at West Charleston High. She says: Football, shmootball. Here's what Claudia Clarke cares about: Harvard, the poor, the disenfranchised, the hungry, the staggering teen pregnancy rate, investigative journalism . . . the list goes on. She does not have a minute to waste on Mr. T-Diddy Smalls and his harem of bimbos.

He Said, She Said is a fun and fresh novel from Kwame Alexander that throws these two high school seniors together when they unexpectedly end up leading the biggest social protest this side of the Mississippi--with a lot of help from Facebook and Twitter. The stakes are high, the romance is hot, and when these worlds collide, watch out!

Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "As the title suggests, Alexander's (Acoustic Rooster and His Barnyard Band) first book for teens jumps between the narratives of two teens who don't see eye to eye: star quarterback Omar "T-Diddy" Smalls and Harvard-bound student activist Claudia Clarke. Omar is getting plenty of action, on and off the field, and he bets his friends that he can sleep with Claudia within a month ("Trust me, cuz, it'll never happen," says one of his friends. "She's Oprah. You're Flavor Flav"). Omar is shot down time and again, but he sees an opening when the school board cuts arts funding, aligning himself with Claudia's mission to overturn the board's decision. Claudia sees right through him ("Yeah, I'll just string Mr. Football along until the protest gets some legs. Then I'll cut him loose like the stray dawg that he is"), but the teens end up surprising each other as they mobilize a protest. Facebook posts, email exchanges, and articles in the school newspaper provide additional forums for classmates' verbal sparring. A fiery and funny romance with an undercurrent of social justice and awareness. Ages 14-up. (Nov.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
