Popular gorgeous jock boy with girlfriend Jason. Friendly, confident, not-as-popular brainiac girl who doesn't date Kyra. Boy and girl get paired up for an English project. It's not all kisses and flowers, however; boy and girl have to deal with a jealous ex-girlfriend who conspires to break them up, an abusive father, peer pressure, and misunderstandings. It sounds boring and it is. While Jason and Kyra's tale of an unlikely romance could be intriguing and heartfelt in the hands of a skilled author, it fails to hold interest here. Although the reader is given constant, lengthy physical descriptions of the characters and their vast wardrobes, these same characters lack human depth and, more importantly, the flaws that make people interesting. The laughable and not because they're witty dialogue and storylines, along with some love scenes that seem to have been overlooked by a copy editor, ruin two smart, potentially interesting teens who begin a relationship under circumstances that could befall anyone.

What does it even mean? Indeed, it intimates that rather than destroying innocence, sexual activity is reversible. Young people are sexual and yet this is positioned as secret and separate from education and its definitions. Portrayed as pregnant in public, Juno explicitly contests this potential, performing the role of sexually active girl. At the same time, however, Juno uses humour to disturb and comfort those around her.

Her statement is most clearly a comment on the fact that sexuality for girls is complicated by social discourses that pronounce girls as powerful subjects but simultaneously impose constraints on their diverse sexual existence and full expressions of sexuality.

Nevertheless, this support does not erase the negative implications of abject representations of pregnancy. The camera cuts behind her as she walks: her peers all stare, leaving a space for her to walk in. By fragmenting her body, at first showing only her stomach, the film momentarily presents Juno as abject, highlighting how others perceive her. This scene can be directly contrasted to one early in the film in which Juno pushed her way through crowds of students who barely gave her a second look.

In presenting teen pregnancy as abject, but also a source of happiness, humour, and discomfort, its complexity is acknowledged.

Becoming Responsible? As I have noted, Juno does not seem to lose a step in her high school education, continuing to attend with plans to go to college. In the remainder of this article I critique discourses of risk and responsibility, considering the manner in which Juno places them in question. In an attempt to prevent teen pregnancy, sex education literature advocates responsibility, rationality, and agency by educating and appealing to reason Lyn Harrison and Lynne Hillier ; Mary Lou Rasmussen , ; Psychologist Deborah L.

Sexual subjectivity can and should. Thus, in depicting pregnant Juno, Juno may itself perpetuate this understanding of teen sex as risky Willis , Yet Juno problematises the expectation that she lacks agency, placing sex education discourses in flux. Juno is critiqued because her behaviour does not accord with reason and rationality: she plans for sex and has knowledge of safe sex practices and yet she gets pregnant. There are a range of reasons for why contraception may not be used, despite knowledge of safe sex.

But, it should also be asked why Bleeker did not provide contraception. Juno performs the part of a girl who is unable to look after a child at the same time as she ruptures understandings of the capabilities of girls.

At the same time, Juno plays on the negative expectations of teenage motherhood. Thank you. Juno is adept at using humour to comfort and confront and at the adoption meeting this humour continues to disrupt and contain the situation.

Rather than being self-deprecating, Juno positions herself as smart, with an understanding of how they might regard her: an irresponsible young woman. However, it is also a joke that puts Vanessa at ease enough to sit and discuss the adoption.

In a conversation with the adoptive father Mark Loring Jason Bateman , Juno is linked to riot grrl by her favourite bands—the Stooges, Patti Smith and The Runaways—artists who are recognised as influential in punk music from the s. You know? Indeed, this pedagogical moment questions what else is at stake in this representation. Juno fails to become a mother, fails to be stigmatised and ashamed, and even fails to become responsible and minimise risk, cycling helmetless to visit Bleeker as the film concludes.

NOTES 1. A type of Bourbon Whisky. The Stooges and Patti Smith were instrumental in the creation of punk music, while the Runaways were an all-girl punk band.

Sex Education in the Age of Abstinence. View all 3 comments. I've read this book two times now. Both times I was disappointed.

The plot was dry and predictable. The dialogue was sappy and boring. The author spent more time talking about the character's appearance and clothing than actually making 3-dimensional characters. Wasn't good at all, and I wouldn't even recommend it as a beach read. Jason Vincent is the star of Cross High's basketball team. Half of the girls at his college-prep school want him, but Lisa is his girlfriend and they've been together for a year.

Jason doesn't have it in his heart to disrespect a female, so even though girls are in his face all of the time, flirting and giving him their phone numbers, he'd never actually cheat. There is one girl he's been eyeing since ninth grade, though. Her name is Kyra Evans.

She's confident, she's smart and she's not trying Jason Vincent is the star of Cross High's basketball team. She's confident, she's smart and she's not trying to fit in. She's different than most girls. So different, in fact, that when Jason spends quite a bit of time with Kyra working on a school project, Lisa isn't the least bit threatened.

Afterall, what guy in his right mind would choose a not-so-attractive, plain dressing, brainiac, virgin over her? Lisa and all the other kids at school school get the shock of their lives when Jason breaks up with Lisa and makes Kyra his new girlfriend.

Kyra Evans didn't intend to develop feelings for another girl's man. She didn't think Jason was her type and even if he was she certainly didn't think the most popular boy in school could ever have feelings for her. The more she gets to know him the more she likes him and it doesn't take long before she realizes she's in love - before they realize they're in love. But then Kyra's insecurities get in the way and everything get's messed up.

Jason & Kyra

Jason Vincent and Kyra Evans - I like these young people. Jason knew the meaning of the word NO. He wasn't a virgin, but he didn't pressure Kyra when he knew she wasn't ready. He was willing to wait.

Kyra was a very intelligent girl with dreams and goals, and she was there for Jason when he really needed someone to talk to. They were a nice couple. There is profanity here and there, and sexual content. My sister suggested this book to and since she never got to read it, so immediately I was excited because somehow my sister knows what kinds of books I like.

Anyway, Jason and Kyra is as predictable as a teen movie. I wasn't at all that impressed I was actually a little embarrassed which is sad to say. Jason is the popular basketball star that everyone loves to hang out with, has a popular slutty girlfriend, and is haven't problems with his father who often abuses him.

Great Books for Teens by African-American Authors

Kyra is a hard working hon My sister suggested this book to and since she never got to read it, so immediately I was excited because somehow my sister knows what kinds of books I like. Kyra is a hard working honor student who just a tiny bit stuck up and thinks Jason is just another panty chaser without brains. When the two get paired up for a science project Kyra discovers that Jason is actually very smart and develops a crush on him.

Jason confides in her and sees that he's actually falling for her too and breaks up with his girlfriend to be with Kyra. Not many people like them being together since Kyra is considered a loser but he stands by her.

This story is fairly simple and at times interesting but its longer then it really should be. Jason and Kyra's make-out session are steamy but never go to anything serious since Kyra keeps stopping him. Jason says a few times, to my discomfort, that he "wants to feel himself in side her. Who even says that!

And when the author trys to make the characters use slang its really forced and un-natural. All in all it was in so-so book. I didn't like it. I could have watched a teen movie in half the time and got a similar story. View all 9 comments. The book that I read this time was Jason and Kyra. Jason and Kyra is a romance novel. The book is about two high school students from different sides of the social spectrum.

Jason is a popular, handsome athlete and Kyra is a brainy, average, and independent girl. Jason and Kyra would have never met if it was not for a project that they were paired together to do. I would definitely recommend this book because of the interesting characters, the valuable lesson it teaches, and the good plot.

The bo The book that I read this time was Jason and Kyra. The book has interesting and entertaining characters! Jason was a popular athlete who many thought were shallow. Though, many people had the wrong impression of Jason because he was very intelligent and caring.

Jason also had problems at home, his mother died when he was three of cancer. His father was a very mean man who verbally abused Jason and even went as far to say [it was his fault that she died] Davidson. Kyra was also an interesting prospective to read from.

The reason why I loved Kyra so much is that she would not think about what anyone else said. I admired the fact that she had the confidence to just be herself. The second reason why I would recommend this book is because it teaches a valuable lesson. The lesson that this book teaches is that you should never judge a book by its cover. Jason turned out to be a very nice and smart person Davidson.

Many people also had the wrong impression that Kyra was some kind of loser, but it turns out that she was confident and intellectual. This book teaches the very simple lesson to everyone that though, you may look a certain way on the outside does not mean you are the same on the inside. The final reason why I would recommend this book is because it has a great plot! While reading this book I found that I could not put the book down. The book kept getting more captivating through each chapter.

Like every romance, this one had its twists and turns. The one big problem that Jason and Kyra had to endure was his ex-girlfriend that he broke up with for Kyra. This book is just a very interesting book that would keep almost anyone captivated.

I would recommend this book to anyone who loves romance novels. This book is great for high-school students because it relates to real-life problems. This book has enduring characters who high-school students can relate to. Jason and Kyra also does a great job of teaching the lifelong valuable lesson of not judging a book by its cover.

Every high-school student should read this book. Oct 21, AlenaJ rated it it was amazing. Jason and Kyra Jason is a good guy. He goes to school and gets good grades. But he also has his own crew. They always tease him about being a nerd. But he knows there joking. Jason was in a smart class. AP English. Which Kyra had too. Jason and Kyra were assigned partners for a research paper in AP English.

He had was attracted to her, but not by a lot. One day after school he was with his best friend, Greg, and saw Kyra. He said to Greg, "Check her out" 35 , pointing and gazing at Kyra. Because Jason and Kyra Jason is a good guy. Because Jason asked about Kyra, "Greg took a mental note for future reference" Yiou could tell Jason was gaining feelings fo Kyra, but just small feelings, at first.

But the problem was that Jason has a girlfriend, Lisa. Jason had described Kyra in a way he would never describe a girl, and he had plenty of girls all over him. He thought the only girl for him was Lisa, but maybe he was wrong. He describved Kyra so well.

Her almond shaped eyes were huge and dark brown, with thick, dark lashes framing them. Her cheek bones were high, her nose was slim, and her lips looked soft. Her teeth were bright and even, and she had an easy smile. Her hair was long and thick and wooly. She nearly always wore it in natural braids, no extensions, which lay between her shoulder blades" Why would he describe her like this?

Why is he so descripted? Why was he looking at he lips? If a guy like Jason describes a girl like that, than his feelings must be real, and he must be with the wrong girl. Kyra and Jason started spending more time together. They thought about each other all the time. He called her once a week. He would pretend to call about the project and then change the subject so he could just talk to her. His feelings grew. So did hers.

They confessed there feelings for each other when Jason had gone to Kyra, after having an argument with his father. Jason always had problems with his father.

Kyra always made Jason better. Jason broke up with Lisa. He asked Kyra, will you be my girl, she said yea. I guess thats like the street wae of asking someone out. Jason learns a lot for being in a relationshiop with Kyra. You should read this book if you like dramatic romantic.

Until a while after they get to know each and both realize they are fit for each other and they are as bad as they thought.

As things got serious they weren't sure that they were ready to get anymore serious, and take a step up in the relationship. I can make a text to world connections because some relationships th This book is about two character Jason and Kyra who live two completely different lives.

The ones that are find it hard to move on up in the relationship and how to slow down. They connect because they both have trouble deciding the speed in the relationship. I would rate this book a 5 because it was really amazing! It was a great read, and an easy one but it is on the more mature level side. I would recommend this book to girls mostly that are 13 and up because it has a more advance content.

Overall I was a fantastic book! I loved this book so much. Jason and Kyra was about how Jason was a popular basketball player in highschool that had a crush on a not so popular girl in school named Kyra. Even though Jason had a girlfriend named Lisa, who was one of the most beautiful girls in the High school he always wondered about the girl he saw every day in english class Kyra.

This book had passion and romance in it and it just got me soo interested and I just couldnt put this book down until I finished. I absolutely loved this book! Sep 30, Taylor Sukys rated it it was amazing. It was so good i could not put it down!! May 03, D'Laycia McCullough rated it really liked it. Jason was your typical popular guy, and Kyra was your typical nerd.

Jason was a basketball player, and had the most popular girl as his girlfriend. He kept secrets from his girlfriend and also his friends. He kept the fact that he was really smart when it came to English and enjoyed writing. So when he had AP English with Kyra he ended up developing feelings for her. He always liked Kyra but his feelings for her got deeper once they were partnered for a project.

Kyra Evans was such a good girl. She was a sweetheart. Kyra loved science and was trying to get a science scholarship.

Kyra lived an amazing life while Jason lived a somewhat okay life. Throughout the time of their project, Jason and Kyra find themselves falling for each other. Keep in mind Jason has a girlfriend. What Lisa tells Kyra changes things forever. Overall, the book was amazing. I would most definitely read it again. Mar 01, Mikayla Morgan rated it really liked it. Jason and Kyra is a fiction book about two African American teens growing a friendship that turns into something more as they work on a class assignment together.

Here is the catch-the two are complete opposites. Jason is one of the coolest, finest looking guys at Cross High School. He's the school's star basketball player and has one of the finest girls at the school as his girlfriend, Lisa.

Kyra is a super smart, unbothered girl who doesn't care what anyone has to say about her and pretty much Jason and Kyra is a fiction book about two African American teens growing a friendship that turns into something more as they work on a class assignment together. Kyra is a super smart, unbothered girl who doesn't care what anyone has to say about her and pretty much stays to herself.

The two already have their mind made up about each other but that all changes when they begin sharing things with each other they wouldn't tell anyone else. Their relationship grows deeper and eventually leads to them falling in love. The two grow to learn how to navigate their way through life in this young adult read.

This book is a must read. This book reminds me of any good young adult or highschool BET movie. I appreciate how the author developed the characters, they are very relatable. The characters talk, walk, and carry themselves just like any other teenager in the early 's.

The book is a little cliche but its heart-warming how Jason and Kyra are there for each other. The book covers many topics that are still relevant to many teenagers today. Kyra refused to be with Jason until he ended things with his girlfriend at the time. Kyra stood firm in her beliefs and morals even though some people looked down on her for that.

She remained confident in herself even when she was sometimes insecure about what people would say about her and Jason being together.

Jason finds many things in Kyra that Lisa would never be able to offer. Jason learned to respect Kyra's morals, build a relationship with his father, and grew to become a better person.

The characters both changed over the course of time for the better. This book is the kind that you still re-read no matter how old it is.

I would recommend this book to anyone! Aug 07, Chioma rated it it was amazing. I finished this book in two days and savored every page. As a teen, I can confidently exclaim that Davidson transcribed all the feelings of high school life in this relatable story.

I loved reading and imagining myself from the perspectives of the characters. I quickly became emotionally attached to both Kyra and Jason for I felt their emotions deep within me.

Also, the prose of this book had a unique flare and energy that kept me intrigued for what would happen next. There are elements that are I finished this book in two days and savored every page. There are elements that are presented early on in this story that prove important later on and I loved the sass and dialogue of the characters!

On a different note, I especially appreciated reading about the lives of Black teenagers at a good-quality high school. This book definitely offered a refreshing tale of Black teens that did not follow the typical African American plot centered around drugs, gangs, etc. May 22, SheR Smith rated it really liked it. A cute teenage love story. It is one of those books that is relatable to readers of all ages.

You can literally see yourself in the characters in some form or another.
