Skipping class can be deadly…
Fifteen-year-old Darcy Walker’s name means "dark walker." Whether her parents’ choice was a stroke of genius or smack of stupid, they definitely nailed the irony. She lacks direction. Distracts easily. And despite a high IQ, her grades stink.
Valley High’s reigning misfit, she’s also infatuated with a bad boy. A guy that her hottie best friend, Dylan, wishes would get acquainted with his fist.
With her life spiraling out of control, she cuts class and stumbles upon a corpse in a dumpster. From there, things go high-octane because in a world full of nouns, Darcy’s a verb. Hardwired for action, she gets caught up in the middle of the mystery and can’t let go.
When the school’s biggest nerd is arrested for the crime, Darcy goes Mach 1 trying to clear his name. Constructing aliases. Breaking the law. Dodging gangbangers who want her dead. Everything that makes perfect sense to her, but reeks of Grade A Stupid to everyone else.
Trouble is...will she live to see sixteen?
Readers call the Darcy Walker Series Stephanie Plum meets Veronica Mars meets The Blacklist.
