If you are a   Ass : A very loyal and  sweet person. Your loyalty can
never be doubted. You are quite honest and sincere when it comes to your
attitude towards working. You are a very simple  person, indeed.
Absolutely hassle free, humble and down-to-earth!!  That explains  the
reason why your friends cling on to you! You have a good taste for
clothes.  If your wardrobe is not updated with what is trendy, you sure
are depressed.  Popular and easy-going. You have a little group of
dignified friends, all of  them being quality-personified.

If you are a Slug : Always up to some sort of a mischief!  The
mischievous gleam in your eyes is what makes you so cute and attractive
to everyone. You are an extremely fun-to-be-with kind of person.  No
wonder people seek for your company and look forward to include you for
all  get-together’s. However, you are sensitive which is a drawback.
People need to  select their words while talking to you. If someone
tries to fiddle around and  play with words while dealing with you, it
is enough to invite your wrath. God  bless the person then!

If you are a Cockroach : Quite contradictory to your name, you  are a
peace loving person. You best try to avoid a situation wherein you are
required to fight. An outdoor person, you dislike sitting at one place
for a  long durati on. You are a born leader, and have it in you how to
tactfully derive  work from people. You love being loved, and when you
receive your share of  limelight from someone, you are all theirs!!!!
Well, well… Hence some people  could even take an advantage, flatter
you to the maximum and get their work  done. So be careful…..

If you are a Parasite : An extremely  lovable, adorable person,
sometimes shy, with a passion for quick wit. At times,  you prefer
quietness. You love exploring various things and going into depth of
each thing. Under normal circumstances you’re cool but when given a
reason to,  you are like a volcano waiting to erupt. You’re a fashion
bird. People look  forward to you as an icon associated with fashion.
Basically, you mingle along  freely but don’t like talking much to
strangers. People feel very easy in your  co m pany. You observe care in
choosing your friends.

If you are a   Skunk : You are near to  perfect and nice at heart. The
examples of your kindness are always circulated  in groups of people.
You, too, love peace. You wouldn’t like to retaliate even  to a person
who is in the wrong. You are loved due to this. You do not wish to  talk
behind one’s back. People love the way you always treat them. You can
give,  give and give love, and the best part is that you do not expect
it back in  return. You are generous enough. Seeing things in a
practical light is what  remains the best trait of you guys.

If you are a  Bullfrog: You symbolize a  very happy-go-lucky approach
in life. Whatever the surroundings may be, grim or  cheerful, you remain
unaffected. In fact, you spread cheer wherever you go. You  are the
leader of your group of friends and good at consoling people in their
times of need. You dislike hypocrisy and tend to shirk away from
hypocrites.  They can never be in your good books, no matter what. You
are very methodical  and organized in your work. No amount of mess,
hence, can ever encompass you.  Beware, it is easy for you to fall in

If you are a  Snake  : You are  mysterious. You are someone who can
handle pressure with ease, and can handle  any atmosphere without going
berserk. You can be mean at times, and love to  gossip with your
selected group. Very prim and proper. You like all si tuations  and
things to be in the way you desire, which, sometimes is not possible. As
a  result, you may lose out in some relationships. But otherwise, you
love to help  people out from difficult and tight spots when they really
need you.

If  you are a Ape : Very impatient and  hyper!!! You want things to be
done as quick as possible. At heart, you are  quite simple and love if
you are the center of attraction. That way, you people  are unique. You
would like to keep yourself safe from all the angles. Shall your  name
be dragged or featured in any sort of a controversy, you then go all
panicky. Therefore, you take your precautions from the very beginning.
When you  foresee anything wrong, your sixth sense is what saves you
from falling in  traps. Quite a money minded bunch you people are!!

Hoping Del Rio Bay High will live up to her greatest expectations, Mina has big plans for infiltrating the school’s social glitterati. After all, she’s been mad popular for as long as she can remember–and she isn’t about to go from Middle School Royalty to High School Ambiguity. But Del Rio Bay is a big school, so it’ll take some plotting to avoid getting lost in the crowd. Good thing she isn’t afraid of a little hard work and that her playground peeps–Lizzie, Michael, and JZ–have got her back. But it isn’t long before Mina’s big plans for securing her social status take a back seat to some drama that was so not expected. Lizzie’s scored an invite from the beautiful people that Mina can only dream about, and not only is Michael tripping about being back in school, but now he’s beefing with JZ. Worst of all, Mina’s sociology class experiment to rid the world–or at least Del Rio Bay High–of prejudice is about to backfire…because it might just mean she’ll have to rid herself of her very best friend.A novel about friendship, betrayal, and how far some will go for popularity, So Not the Drama takes a fresh and wickedly funny look at planet high school.

Cover Image

When Imani Shepherd, a world-traveled African-American journalist, tries to find out about her family tree through interviewing her elderly parents on video, she runs into a network of half-truths, evasions, and shame. She finds her family consumed with keeping “dirty little secrets”. Because of her mother’s denial, the family history is shrouded and elusive, epitomizing a pattern of Black mothers and their daughters down through generations marked by a collective memory of slave experiences, rapes and brutalities. The Ebony Tree is a candid, unflinching, revealing, and ultimately redeeming novel of family, heritage, new generations, and the enduring human spirit framed within African-American experience and personal history. ~ Midwest Book Review
