Title: Until We Meet Again
Author: Anne Schraff
Darcy Wills expects her upcoming summer to be perfect, but things are about to change, and fast! When she starts baby sitting for a neighbor, a new guy shows interests in her and she begins to act out of her character to see him. As Darcy goes through the hard transition from teen to adulthood, she makes some unsettling decisions and has to pay the consequences of losing the trust of others, most importantly, her family. But it is through these experiences that she learns and appreciates the life lesson that wrongs can be righted where there is love and patience. Overall, I enjoyed reading this Bluford High book. I think they are fast, fun, real reads. It was Darcy's character I really enjoyed. Her personality is so relatable. She's a teen with ambitions, but she still faces troubles thrown at her. And I love how she sensibly tries to sort out and analyze what was happening in her life. Through Darcy, I absorbed the positive message that life is unpredictable, and as we grow up, we may make mistakes, but we have to own up to the consequences.
