“Darla Decker has to be one of my favorite young adult protagonists.” ~ AvidEye
It’s the summer before high school, and secrets are turning Darla Decker’s life upside down. With her parents’ increasing distance and her brother’s eagerness to escape, life is tense at home.
Even Darla, Reggie, and Nate’s first training weekend as Camp Wakonda counselors is tougher than they imagined. But when she and her best friends uncover a shocking connection between Reggie’s grandmother and Shiloh Farms’ resident demon-bus-driving cat lady, the trio dives into a mystery that’s been decades in the making.
Will Darla, Nate, and Reggie’s friendship survive the turbulent days leading to ninth grade, or will it fade like so many other relationships into the past?
“...the spirit of the ‘Darla Decker Diaries’ is universal. That growing up is amazing and awful. Beautiful and heart-wrenching at every turn. It’s something that is frightening for all of us but we also all have it within ourselves to get through it. With a little help from our friends.” ~ C. Clark, Author
