Welcome to Bluford High. This widely acclaimed teen series set in an urban high school features engaging, accessible writing and appealing, contemporary storylines. Cindy is used to her mother never being home; she works odd hours and constantly goes out with her awful boyfriend, Raffie. Cindy just wants to feel loved. At first, Bobby Wallace was everything Cindy Gibson hoped for. He was friendly, seemingly mature, and hansome — the perfect escape from her problems in school and even bigger troubles at home. But then, Bobby starts behaving strangely, and Cindy gets scared. Hiding her concerns from her friends and her distracted mother, Cindy soon finds herself in the worst trouble of her life.
