A walk into Darcyville in Grade A Stupid by AJ Lape

 Bienvenue sur Darcyville, où les choses semblent toujours aller de travers!

Don't have a clue to what I just said?  Let me start again.....

Welcome to Darcyville, where things always seem to go awry!  Why do I say that?  Well, that is simple.  Because they do.  Darcy is one of those characters who always seems to make a fool of herself in the most inopportune times.  You will see what I mean!

"But that was Darcyville.  Stuff happened in Darcyville, and you were left to either accept it or annihilate the SOBs that caused it."
The characters in this story are just perfect!  Darcy with her determination to make the wrongs that she feels she started, right.  Her friends..... They are the perfect combination of daring, caring and sarcastic bunch of high schoolers.

One can never tell what is up and what is down.  This book is a combination of teenagers being teenagers and part sleuth.  Part sleuth?  Well, you have to read the book to find out that part.
"EXPERTS SAY THEY may have identified a gene for the daredevil.  I think I was first in line when God was passing out that type of idiocy."
I laughed so much throughout this book.  It is pure genius!  The combination of seriousness, teen angst, sarcasm, heroism and comedy.... I couldn't get enough of this story!  This is the type of book that will appeal to both adults and teenagers!  And to boot.... the use of "cuss" words is perfect!  I would totally allow my teenagers read this without having to worry about its contents!
"Stupid's my favorite word.  It could be a noun, an adjective, or an adverb dependent upon the way you phrased it in a sentence."
One can say that Darcy lives in Darcyville which falls in the center of Stupidville?  Maybe.  Maybe not.  My bet is on not.  Darcy is far from stupid.  I have my suspicions on the weird encounter at the end of the book. I can't wait for more of Darcyville to find out if I am right!
