This book is really good. I love the ending. I learned that in life there will be obstacles and you just have to learn how to overcome it. When there's people that's been in your life for a long time and they just left you because of something they didn't accept, it's okay. Everything in the end will be fine.

This series has been flying off the shelf ever since we purchased it, so I finally read one. Only 125 pages, large type, plot-driven, good for reluctant readers. I appreciate that all of the main characters are African-American high schoolers, and I think the covers are a big reason kids are picking them up (as a side note, be sure to go for the gorgeous photos on the Scholastic covers, NOT the strange paintings on the earlier Townsend covers).

In this teen drama, 16-year-old Darcy has a lot to

In the novel “A Matter Of Trust” the story takes place at Buford High School and also in a house. The characters are Darcy, Brisana, Hakeem, Tarah and Cooper. My prediction will be based on Darcy and Brisana because the book is based on them. Darcy is a girl that goes to high school called Buford High School. In the story it says that “Darcy hangs out with a couple of friends, and she’s pretty happy.” Darcy also has a boyfriend name Hakeem. Everything is fine except for two things. One, she used ...more

Dear Charan,

She also has a stuttering boyfriend. Darcy's best friend used to be this girl named Brisana. Sadly, they fell apart once they both got to high school, because Darcy began to hang out with "zeros" in other words lo

For starters, I would like to thank the Lord for allowing me the opportunity to read this book. It's been a while since I've read books from this series. I believe the last one I read was Brothers in Arms by Paul Langan, and I loved it. I loved Martin Luna. I also love Darcy Wills, the main character in this book. I really liked how the story ended because it was sweet! I liked all the characters. I liked how this was a cute, fun, and short read. This series, Bluford High is written by two peopl ...more

Had you ever had the one feeling, that you don't trust a few person out there? well i had, and not just one person but a several of persons. I guess thats how life is. When someone says they truly trust you they mean it, so don't make that person regret the trust they have in you. That just really makes me think i cant trust anyone out there but the family. My opinion in this book i actually really liked it i read most of Bluford High books they are great, they're so addicting i literally read t ...more

This book is a girl named Darcy and she keeps flirting with her boyfriend. Also Darcy's grandmother is sick and her father is trying to find his way back in there family.This book is a page tuner and is very insteresting. The parts that made this book insteresting was when Darcy, Jamee, and their mother went to Aunt Charlotte house for dinner.These conflicts helped me better understand the charachters.

This book was published of the year 2002. The genre of the book is fiction. I personally think that the book is very interesting. You can see the true feelings from most of the charters. You can see the inside of the main charter feelings of one another.
This book is about teenagers who are going through many things. Darcy Williams is always there for her boyfriend Hakeem. She has a grandmother who is sick and is need for help. Her sister name Darcy ran a

The book is mainly about trust. The author's purpose of writing the story is mainly to say to trust people even if you do not want to. The main characters in novel are Brisana Meeks, Darcy Wills, and Hakeem Randall. Darcy and Hakeem are dating and they think that trust is big factor in a relationship. Brisana Meeks is a trouble maker who loves to make people angry. My favorite character is Darcy because she learned to put her trust in people and let them learn to trust her. She also learned to f ...more

“A Matter of Trust” by Anne Schrafft is a really good book that inspires me. This book is based on trust. Two young girls Darcy Wills and Brisana Meeks used to be really close friends until Darcy started hanging out with the group that wasn’t popular. They both were sixteen and attendant Bluford high school. Darcy was going out with a boy named Hakeem. Everyone made fun of the way Hakeem talked because every time he talked aloud he would stutter.

Did a friend from school ever take advantage of your boyfriend and mess with him behind your back? Well in the story "A Matter of Trust", that’s what a girl name Brisana Meeks does to Darcy a girl who dates Hakeem. They believe that trust is a big factor in a relationship. Brisana is there to tear them apart. I like this book because it deals with trust, backstabbing, and how boys can act. It really teaches a lesson.

First, if you can’t trust a person then you don’t have anything. Trust plays a
