aul Langan

Born in Philadelphia, Paul Langan spent his early childhood in the city before moving with his single mother to southern New Jersey. There he attended public school and worked a variety of jobs—including salesperson at a shoe store, attendant at a horse ranch, landscaper at a mental hospital, and a night-shift stockperson in a warehouse store near Atlantic City. “Each job,” he says today, “could be the topic of several juicy novels.”

In 1991, he enrolled at Camden County College and a year later transferred to La Salle University, where he studied creative writing and literature, earning a B.A. in English. While at La Salle, he lived with international students, traveled to his roommate’s home in Kenya, became a prison tutor, and found “the courage” to write.

After graduation, he worked for a nonprofit agency in Philadelphia and then joined Townsend Press (TP) as an Assistant Editor. After he contributed to a number of TP textbooks and taught English at a community college, Paul reconnected to his interests in creative writing through the Bluford Series. Originally working as an assistant with the Bluford novels, Paul’s role steadily grew. He now serves as both editor of the series and author or coauthor of several novels, including The Bully, The Gun, and The Fallen. His stories reflect his personal experiences, including the difficulties of growing up without a father, being the “new kid” in school, and dealing with the loss of a loved one.

In 2001, Paul completed a Master’s degree in Education from the University of Pennsylvania. In addition to expanding the Bluford Series, he dreams of writing a successful movie script, preferably a “supernatural thriller.” Today Paul lives with his wife and three children near Philadelphia and stubbornly clings to the hope that he will one day see the Philadelphia Eagles win the Super Bowl.

Amazing Novel This is a great book. Its filled with romance and drama. This book reflects on real life and things that can actually happen. In this novel the Teresa was my favorite character, because I can really relate to her in so many ways. This book started out getting good towards the middle of the first chapter. I think the author of this book is trying to tell children to not be so ignorant and fight over little petty things to get yourself put out of school, but although this is a pretty good novel to I suggest you read it.

Martin is a junior at Bluford High, one of few Latinos in the school. He struggles with anger management but is unwilling to verbalize the cause of his anger. When he finds out the bullet that killed his younger brother was meant for someone else, he vows revenge. Will he be able to evade the bully, Frankie, and still carry out the violent act he has planned? Langan tells the story of an urban youth in conflict, with no one to turn to (in the protagonist's mind). Teens relate to the characters; this series is one of the most popular in my middle school. Highly recommended.
