This fourth coming-of-age/young adult novel in the Darla Decker Diaries series is ideal for readers 13 and older.
Darla Decker is still shaking from a rough year of seventh grade. Her parents barely speak to each other, her best friend Reggie is dating her lifelong crush, and Nate Young is acting like he’s allergic to the word “boyfriend.”
Troubles aside, Darla is resolved to be on her best behavior and kick off eighth grade with a smile… but even the straightest paths have obstacles.
Darla’s about to learn that the people she knows best can hide the most mind-blowing secrets. Will she show maturity in the face of turmoil? Can she accept the changes rippling through her life? Only time and Darla’s final days in Fairmount Middle School will tell.
A frank and funny look at the path to adulthood, Darla Decker Plays It Straight continues the journey of love, loss, and the nitty-gritty of growing up through Darla Decker’s eyes.
