Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Praise for Bluford High

“The Bluford novels have been wildly popular with young readers across the country and continue to entice reluctant readers. . . . The books are well written, treat the problems of inner-city youth with respect, and avoid easy answers to the challenges that kids face today.” –James Blasingame, Associate Professor of English Education at Arizona State University, coeditor of The ALAN Review

Here's what teens are saying about Bluford High

“As soon as I finished one book, I couldn't wait to start the next one. No books have ever made me do that before.” –Terrance W.

“Once I started reading them, I just couldn't stop, not even to go to sleep.” –Brian M.

“When I finished these books, I went back to the beginning and read them all over again. That's how much I loved them.” –Caren B.

    No way out!!!!!!

    How far would you go to earn money? Well for Darrell Davis he went way to far. Harold is young and a very shy boy. He goes from sweet to sour when he goes too far. In No Way Out my favorite part is when he works for the neighborhood drug dealer, because it brings lots of action. I also think it is very kind for Harold to care for his grandmother the way he did. The biggest part in the book is when Harold wants to quit working for londell, but he has no way out. The conflict is definitely man vs. man when londell and wont let Harold quit. I one hundred percent think every kid should ready this book. It is action packed and has a bit of romance.

Harold has to start hiding from his grandma but it only last a little while before she starts going through his bookbag and starts throwing stuff down the drain. Now harold is in toooooooo much trouble. Who will get arrested who will get hurt who will die who will get shot . Read the book!

    No Way Out



    This book was another great book that I read, that was in the Bluford High Series. This book is called No Way Out by Peggy Kern, and I think that the title just catches your attention right away. It was another book that gave a life lesson to the main character. These Bluford High books are impressing me more and more as I keep reading these interesting books. I'm sure that anyone can connect to these books, because I have connected easily to both of the books I have read so far. These books talk about problems that a lot of people be having in their lifetimes, which makes it easy to connect to the books and understand them better. Their wasn't many characters In this book just like the other book I read but, they all have important roles in these books.
    I think that Cindy was the person in this book that really helped the protagonist. Because she told Mr. Harris were to go to find Harold which is the protagonist. So, since she told Mr. Harris were Harold was she helped save Harold's life, because Mr. Harris beat up Londell and helped the police put in jail. Cindy, also tried to give Harold advice before he took that horrible good paying job that Londell gave him. So Cindy was a very big part in this book and she made the book better. Another thing she did was help Harold take care of his sick, diabetic, weak, and unhealthy grandmother.
    Their was a lot of foreshadowing in this book about, why Harold would regret taking the job that Londell offered him. The first time it happened was when Harold saw that Kenyan had a bad bruise on his face. The second time was when he noticed that Jupiter a bruise on his arm. He should have knew that Londell did that to them but he soon found out. The third time was when he noticed that Londell doesn't take care of his boys that work for him. Because he doesn't even pay Bug he just pays him in cheeseburgers. Also him making them stay out there on the playground working when thye should be in school. So all of these things led up to him not wanting the job anymore. He got beat up, cut, and caught by his grandmother that he was selling drugs, and he never wanted any of those things to happen. The climax of the story was Harold taking the job from Londell, that messed up his life for about two weeks. The first day he came to the park he got the job that Londell had been offering him. That day he made one delivery with Londell by his side. But the second day he had to make two deliveries by himself that were far from the park. On the first delivery he went to a guy named Shawn house; Shawn didn't have enough money to buy the drugs so Harold wouldn't give it to him. Also Shawn knew that Londell wasn't with Harold to protect him. So suddenly Shawn leaped out of the house at Harold and hit him right in forehead. He keep punching Harold until Harold gave him the drugs. As soon as Harold gave him the bag, Shawn fell to his knees ripped the bag open and started using the drugs outside were everyone could see. Then Harold went to his house took a shower; and found out that his grandmother found the drugs and dumped in the sink so now he had to go back to the park without the drugs or the money. Londell was furious at Harold now because he didn't have the drugs or the money. Londell had Harold pinned down and was telling Jupiter to finish him off. But suddenly a car pulled and Mr. Harris got out and started beating up Londell, and Londell told Jupiter to get t

    No Way Out

    This book was very exciting. When there is a kid who has no family except for his grandma but then she gets seriously hurt, the book can't be dull. The life of Harold Davis is falling apart. When his grandma gets hurt, the government is threatening to take him away if his grandma can't take care of him. With the emergency expenses, transportation, and equipment expenses come back, Harold doesn't think that she will. Then someone offers him a "job" to help pay for his expenses, he's tempted. What will he do?
