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!

"Narrators Ruffin Prentiss and Carra Patterson channel the humor and sweetness of Kwame Alexander's first YA novel, an urban rom-com recently released on audio. Omar "T-Diddy" Smalls is a big-talking football star who scores both on and off the field. Claudia Clarke is a whip-smart activist--Harvard-bound, with no time for the likes of T-Diddy. Omar's friends have a bet that he can't get with Claudia, and that bet is on! Prentiss and Patterson bring out the liveliness of Omar and Claudia's saucy banter as flirtation deepens into something more. The narrators honor the rhythm and swing of the text and authentically communicate the couple's charm and energy. A fun audio that will leave listeners cheering for this unlikely and memorable pair.
