Secrets in the Shadows





Anne Schraff


The last person 16-year-old Roylin wants to be like is his father - an abusive drunk who is in and out of jail. But Roylin finds himself getting angry all the time; at school where he feels like he doesn't belong, at the pretty new girl who is leading him on, and at the man who is blackmailing him into doing something terrible. Will the circle of violence and tragedy continue or will Roylin be able to find a way out?

The Bluford High series are lite urban books dealing with real life situations at an inner city school. The books are easy to read with characters teens can relate to.
