    ANOTHER JOB WELL DONE, ANNE SCHRAFF!!

    First off, great book. I think this is the best series of books I have ever read. This one is especially thrilling and exciting. One I read the first sentence, I couldn't put the book down. It took me so long to read because I read very slowly so I wouldn't miss any details. This is about a boy named Roylin Bailey who finds his dream girl, Korie who is perfect for him. He finds out that her birthday is coming up and he wants
    to get her something very special. He likes this girl so much, that she has him willing to steal for her. But, this special gift doesn't just cost him a lot of money, but a very valuable friend. And that friend is not going to be told in this review so what are you waiting for run down to the store and read this book for yourself! Also I reccomend all the other Bluford Series books!

    Secrets in the shadows review

    This book was excellent. It wasn't predictable at all. I'ts always good for a second look. The characters in this book expressed their feelings very clearly. In this book, a boy named Roylin is stuck in the middle of a mystery but he has no way out. I definitely recommend this book to everyone because it is a good reader.

    Secrets in the shadows Review

    Would you kill a friend for a girl that you like? That's how Roylin Bailey feels. Roylin is just a wimpy, dumb, unattractive kid. Roylin doesn't get many girls so he lies about himself for them. This book is a great book because it is full of suspense and mystery. I would recommend this book to others. Overall this would be a great book to buy.

    Secrets in the Shadows Review

    The book I selected to read for SSR was Secrets in the Shadows by Anne Schraff. I ran across this book in the library at HTHS in the fiction section. The title really hooked me and convinced me to pick it up. I read the back cover and realized that Secrets in the Shadows was a novel about the secret life of a high school boy named Roylin. <BR/> He liked this new girl, Korie, at his school. He wanted Korie to be his girlfriend. One day, she showed him an expensive necklace at the jewelry store. Knowing he couldn¿t afford it, he made a promise to her that he would buy it for her birthday. In need of 200 dollars, Roylin headed back to his apartment. Now Roylin is in a dreadful situation¿<BR/> This novel was great and kept me in suspense. It was an easy read book and flowed very well. I liked the fact that the characters were my age and I could relate to some of their feelings. For example, Roylin, the teenage boy went through a regular high school life, like me. I also have respect for him. Even though he was brought up in a bad home, Roylin still went to school, attempted to make good grades, and tried to stay out of trouble. Anne Schraff did a great job setting up the plot. Just when I started to form a theory about the ending, the events would turn on me and change the whole outcome of the book. I would recommend this book to all high-school kids, especially those who like mystery. This book taught many lessons and helped me realize the consequences that could come from such small errors. All in all, the book, Secrets in the Shadows by Anne Schraff was a tremendous book and I am glad I came across it.

    It was the greatest book i ever read.

    well to begin, it was one of a fantasics book i ever read. at first when my brother gave me the book and told me to start reading i was like no, it doesn't even look intresting but then my brother told me trust me it seems more intresting then it looks. so then one day i was bored and i saw the book so i said lets see if he's true. So then i started reading it and when i realized time flew really fast and i was still reading the book. it was amazing i didn't want to stop reading even though i don't like reading. to me it was so great becuase you learn from it. And the part that i really liked is when he was pretending to be somebody who he wasn't like buying her that necklace. He had to steal and take the guilt. i really enjoy reading these books thats why i like reading now becuase all the bluford series got me really intresting.

    wonderful story

    This story is so great it was the third book I read. It was about a boy who met this new girl in school,so he introduced himself to her, and they got to know each. Then later on in the story they started hanging around each other at lunch, and after school. Since the boy liked her he made up a lie to impress her, and she showed him something she really wanted. It was like he loved her because he took it so far to point of stealing money to give her what she wanted, but he made a mistake beacuse he took the money from the wrong person his old friend but promised to pay him back. The next day someone was spying on him when he took the money & told him his friend had a heart attack after seeing his money was missing so he pretend his friend was dead , but he put him in a nursing home to hide his absence. He had the boy thinking It was his fault for his friends death...He steadiedly had bad dreams about until his friend had a plan that helped him find his old friend & not get in trouble after all, but after all that on the other hand he bought the girl what she wanted. She later on betrayed him, and started talking to a football player, and he ended up fighting the football player, and getting beat up. But then after all that, and finding his old friend he forgave, and was sorry for what he did, He even forgave his ex for cheating, and starting enjoying life, then at the end his ex came up to him trying to make there relationship work out again, and apologizing, but he decided to break it off, and keep it off, and jus be friends with her...The end!!! It was just a great book read it for yourself I could be wrong,and didnt give all the details so read it for yourself not from my point of view...enjoy!!!

    Secrets in the Shadows by Anne Schraff  is so amazing and also v

    Secrets in the Shadows by Anne Schraff  is so amazing and also very exciting at the end. The characters are very realistic. If you like this book,  you would love the other Bluford Series books, too. Roylin Bailey is in trouble. He stole money from his best friend, Mr. Miller. He stole the money to buy an expensive necklace for this new student he likes at his school, Korie Archer. Roylin is furious, because he thinks Korie likes Steve.This book reminds me of “A Matter of Trust.” In that book, Darcy and Brisana were friends, but stopped being friends after Darcy was friends with Cooper and Tarah, because Brisana took Darcy’s boyfriend, Hakeem from Darcy. My favorite part about this book was when Cooper helped Roylin when he needed someone to talk to. This book is very realistic and outstanding. It deals with friendships and it is just a wonderful book. Korie said that Steve is a snob and she says she liked Roylin, but Roylin breaks up with Korie and he goes to visit his best friend, Mr. Miller at the nursing home.
