after reading this book Elite and I have alot in common. We both love to sing. where both sixteen -years-old and are mother is both addicted to drugs. I like Elite because she had a boyfriend that was no good for her, then she meet this famous rapper Haneef who is mega hot. They got together at one of his concert's that he was having and Elite and her best friend Nija had won concert tickets to his show. During his show he asked her to sing his new song with him in front of thousands of people. After Elite and Haneef start going out Elite is doing a lot of lieing to the reporters and to her friends that she is not going out with the famous rapper. So Elite is being fake to her friends but she is deeply in love with Haneef.
