Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Gail C. Krause
Darcy Wills, a shy, intelligent sophomore at Bluford High finds friends in Tarah and Cooper, two rowdy students with whom she otherwise would not associate. She is assigned to be partners with Tarah on a science project and they must work together in and out of class. Tarah's football-player boyfriend, Cooper, is a good guy with a rambunctious reputation. Through Darcy's association with Tarah, Cooper becomes her friend and chases away her younger sister's boyfriend who tries to scare Darcy by threatening to beat her as he did her younger sister, Jamee. Adding to her troubles, her grandmother is dying, and she must care for her. He father abandoned the family five years earlier, and her mom works the night shift in the hospital ER. Darcy becomes distraught at her younger sister's rebellious attitude, her ignoring of her grandmother, her lying to their mother, and her constant arguing with Darcy. To make matters worse, Darcy thinks a stranger in an old silver car, who appears outside of her school, at her bus stop, and outside her home is stalking her. The last straw is when she finds her sister has run away. The police can't find her; Darcy's mother can't find her; Jamee's friends have not seen or heard from her, and then Darcy gets a clue from grandma. Darcy calls upon her new friends, including Hakim, her secret heartthrob, and her long lost Dad to find her sister. They find her in the mountains where their father had made her Princess of the World when she was a little girl. While Jamee recovers in the hospital, Darcy's new friend Tanya sits with Gram, and Darcy's mother and father reconciled. Suddenly, Darcy's life is full of new hope.

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.

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!!!

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.
