The title of my book is Lost and Found. The author is Anne Schraff. Fiction is the type of genre.
Darcy Wills is a sixteen year old girl and the oldest sister. She is friendly, smart, and helpful. Jamee is the little sister she is fourteen years old, two years younger than Darcy. She is smart too, but she has a little attitude. Darcy is the oldest sister and she is always trying to help her little sister. I can identify with her when she is trying to help her sister, but she gets an attitude. That's how I get some times, too! It make me so mad when you try to help someone they and stab you in the back. That's how Darcy feels in this book. Tarah Carson is a fifteen year old girl. She is one of Darcy's new friends. She is smart, funny and likes to joke around a lot. Cooper is a boy another one of new friend's. Cooper is a new friend to Darcy. He is smart, funny and he likes to joke around a lot more than Tarah does. He is also protective of girls. When a girl is getting hurt, he is there to help. Then he beats the guy up.
This story takes place in California in the middle of October. Darcy, Jamee, Mattie Wills which is Darcy's and Jamee's Mom and Grandma live in a small apartment. Grandma had a stroke a couple of months ago, and now she lives with them.
I think the author is trying to say that teenagers get mad, and they can get glad but, you just have to let them chill a little and/or ask them what is wrong. This story is about courage, caring, and doing the right thing. I learned from the book that if you be nice to people they will be nice back. The problem was that Jamee was missing and they didn't know where she was.
The first thing that happened in the story was Darcy was doing an astronomy project and she was paired with a girl named Tarah Carson. The second thing was Darcy overheard a boy named Bobby Wallace who was always in trouble. He was talking to another kid and was saying that Jamee, Darcy's little sister, was steeling CD's for him. After that Darcy's grandma was saying that she was a little girl again because she had a stroke a couple months ago. She was very confused. The fourth thing that happened was Jamee got beat up by Bobby Wallace because Darcy had confronted him about the CD's Jamee had been stealing for him. Then ne day in school there was a threatening note on Darcy's desk. She was scared. Finally, the last thing that happened was there was a man following her everyday. Wherever she was, he was. I thought that the book was a great book and other people should read it and the other Bluford High books. I liked the whole book, but mostly the last two chapters were exciting. I disliked the little sister's attitude toward her mother, sister, and her aunt. It was hard to believe that it was happening to her. The story was a little predictable. I would give the book five stars.

What if someone's stalking you? Would you run and hide or comfront the man. what if he had a gun? Or your sister ran away from home? Would you be mad at her for putting your mom in all this pain or would you worry and hopes she's somewhere warm? Well if want to know read about it in the book, "Lost and Found," starring Darcy Wills. Darcy is in the 11th grade at Blue ford High. She has brown eyes, curly brown and a straight A student. This book has a great beginning middle and ending. It tells what its like in Darcy's life. This book is perfect to read if you need to do a book report or, and read for fun. For example it have a great plot, climax, conflict, ECT. I recommend this book mainly to girls because some of the stuff just revolves around a girl's life. I think this is one of the best Blue Ford High books and you should defiantly read it.

Finally a book that actually takes real life situations and turn them into a book. This is the book for you if your dad left your family, or your grandmother is really sick, or even if you a struggling to find yourself in this world. The book "Lost and Found" tell you like it is, the book doesn't bead around the bush with you at all. You can picture your own self being in the story, feel the emotion in it, and actually enjoy it physical and also mentally. This book in particular is for those kids going through the same thing, especially if they do not know what to do. I recommend to every reader to read every single book in the Bluford Series!!!

Darcy Willis has gone through a lot the last couple of weeks. Her sister is now out of trouble and on the right track, her dad who left the family a long time ago returns to their home, and she has a new boyfriend, Hakeem Randall. Now she has to face another problem which is Brisana Meeks. Brisana is her ex-best friend who she stopped hanging with when she hooked up with Hakeem and the other ¿weirdoes¿.¿ Hakeem is a nice who plays the guitar and sings but he can¿t take it when people laugh at him when he stutters. She is now mad and is trying to take Darcy¿s boyfriend just to make her mad. Darcy pushes him to perform in the school talent show. So will Hakeem do good in the talent show? Will Darcy¿s mom and dad get back together? Check out this book for yourself at your local library. I give this book two stars.

A Novel You Should Read!
This book is very exciting and mysterious I think everyone should read because it’s talking about an everyday life series of things that happens in this world today. My most favorite character will be Darcy Willis one of the main characters she over goes a number of things dealing with her grandmother who is very ill, her mother who is working multiple jobs to take care of them, and a father who hasn’t been there any of her life. The books starts off pretty good but once your deep into reading it you wouldn’t want to stop because you would want to know what else is going to happen. I think the author’s point she is trying to get across is no matter what the situation is talk to someone before taking the actions into your own hands.
