Jason & Kyra - Dana Davidson


Jason is a basketball star and one of the most popular guys in school. Brainy Kyra isn't, but she doesn't much care what other people think. Under normal circumstances, Jason and Kyra would live in their separate worlds until graduation. But fate intervenes, and the unlikely duo is paired up for a class project. Although preconceived notions abound on both sides, Kyra soon realizes that Jason is not the dumb jock she anticipated. And Jason finds himself telling Kyra things he can't even tell his best friend. As the two become close and eventually start to fall in love, no one in school can believe it, especially Jason's ex-girlfriend, who is determined to get him back. Being together means navigating the obstacles that are coming their way-but staying apart may be impossible. Dana Davidson is a high school teacher who was the 2001 winner of the Newsweek WDIV Outstanding Teacher Award. This is her first book for young adults.

Yang saya suka dari buku ini adalah bahasa Inggrisnya mudah sekali untuk dimengerti.
Sesuai dengan sinopsisnya, buku ini bercerita tentang Jason & Kyra, pelajar Sekolah Menengah Atas yang berasal dari dua strata sosial yang berbeda di sekolah. Keduanya dipertemukan lewat sebuah tugas di kelas. Dari situ, Jason yang kehidupan rumahnya berantakan karena ayahnya nggak peduli sama dia, jatuh cinta sama Kyra.
Saya nggak suka banget sama Kyra, terutama sama kisah cinta dua orang ini. Menurut saya terlalu klise, seperti adegan dimana Jason cerita sama Kyra tentang ayahnya yang suka pergi sama pacar barunya, dan ibunya yang sudah meninggal; Kyra digambarkan sebagai orang yang benar-benar bersimpati sama Jason. Dan itu yang ngebuat saya jengkel. Klise banget nggak sih, cerita cinta cowok yang jatuh cinta sama cewek yang dikiranya ‘paling ngerti perasaannya’ atau ‘mau ngedengerin dia’.
Too cliché.
