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. It's only the after feeling that matters. In the end everything will be fine. You'll soon realize if that person really matter or not. This is why I think that the title is a great title. " ...more

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

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

Have you ever had a hard time gaining someones trust back when they used to be really close to you? I think this book can relate to your situation. This book also explains how that person started to kinda get trust back from that certain person. Overall, the book was good, some parts in the story teaches you some lessons about life.

Two sisters, Darcy and Jamee who attend Bluford Highschool, are still heartbroken over the fact that their dad left them to go with a much younger women in New York.

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

The book I have read is called “A Matter of Trust”, by Anne Schraff. This book is a fiction book. The theme of the book is to always have confidences in your self, have trust in others that is close to you and deal with different situations differently, also to forgive the people who done wrong to you.

Dear Charan,

I am reading the book "A Matter of Trust' by Anne Schraff, which is a work of realistic fiction.
This book is about a young woman named Darcy. She has a lot on her plate from a elderly grandmother to her long lost father coming back into her life wanting to regain her trust. 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
A Matter of Trust by Anne Schraff, the second installment to Lost and Found. I have to say, this book was a lot better than the first.
We see Darcy again, while she deals with a kind-of-but-not-really romantic relationship with Hakeem(their relationship status can be annoying. I mean, are you together or not?)the prospect of her former best friend stealing Hakeem away from her, and uncertain of whether to re-establish a relationship with her father, who left the family five years ago.

This book,

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

This book was amazing. My favorite thing about the Bluford series books are that they have real life situations that actual people go through every day. Darcy lIves in a small apartment with her mom, sister, and her sick grandmother. Life was fine until it took a turn for the worst. Darcy's ex best friend Brisana is trying to ruin her life and her dad who abandoned her years ago, is now trying to make up for the trouble he has caused. What will Darcy do and who will she trust?

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 a great book. I really love to see how Darcy feel now about her dad coming back to that house. Also she think that her family might be a normal family after her mom and her dad had a conversation that made her mother give her father a chance

The charcters Brisana and Darcy both was fighting over this one boy name Hakeem. Darcy really liked him and Brisna just said he liked and and did stuff to get under Darcy skin. Darcy would let stuff happen and let her do thing until one day she got so fed up and they got in this whole fight. After that Brianna finally stopped and chilled out.

How I thought of the book
A Matter of Trust was an o.k book. When I was first looking for a book, I was recommended to read this book. This book is also part of The Bluford series; a series of books that are all about struggles in a teenage highschooler’s life. Now, I am saying it is a decent book because it didn’t bore me, but on the other hand, it could of been a little more interesting. The beginning of book interest

“Darcy followed his gaze and saw the crumpled figure in the parking lot,blood pouring from a head wound”.This was one of the scenes that I enjoyed the most from the book that made me keep reading.Teen drama out of all the other genres for reading is one of the best in my opinion.Especially when Anne Schraff writes them because it’s fascinating to me the way she expresses the character's feelings and personality in “A Matter Of Trust”.

It's interesting and many people can relate to this story.
It tells a true life story that although it hasnt happened,but it can happen. its about a girl whos boyfriend gets teased and she always has to stand up for him but he doesnt like that. And she doesnt understand why. Her dad is trying to get back in her life, but since he walked out her life for such a hard time its hard for her to accept his apoligy because she doesnt want to get hurt again.
