November will mark the fourth anniversary of writing Grade A Stupid, and I’ve put together an anniversary edition! To read it early, follow the link to NetGalley and download a copy. I’m also running a reviewer’s giveaway. Once you download your copy, you will get the details for the giveaway! Thank you so much for supporting Darcy and me for these past four years!
Fifteen years ago, Darcy Walker’s parents thought it was a good idea to give her a unique name: Darcy, meaning “dark walker.” Whether that was a stroke of genius or stroke of stupid, they definitely nailed the irony. She lacks direction, her grades stink despite a high IQ, she’s boringly average—although flirting admirers claim otherwise—and God help her, she’s infatuated with a bad boy.
A bad boy that her hottie best friend, Dylan, wishes would get acquainted with his fist.
With her life spiraling out of control, everything changes when she skips class and finds a dead body…in fact, it gets worse. It jump-starts Darcy’s inner-verb, and her brain hardwired for action gets caught up in a situation she can’t let go.
Set in the fictional Cincinnati town of Valley, Ohio, Darcy falls into a world of threats, violence, and gangland exploits chasing down every clue to finger the murderer. When a fellow misfit is arrested for the crime, Darcy goes from zero-to-sixty trying to clear his name—constructing aliases, breaking the law, everything that makes perfect sense to her but reeks of Grade A Stupid to everyone else.
Trouble is…will she live to see sixteen?
