Anne Schraff’s Urban Underground

You might be familiar with Anne Schraff as the author of the Bluford High series.

If you enjoyed any of her Bluford titles, be sure to check out her new series Urban Underground, featuring a group of high school students trying to get through life at Tubman High.

In the first book, Outrunning the Darkness, Jaris has to cope with his father’s depression and his mother’s avoidance. “Just put on a happy face,” she always says. But it’s hard for Jaris and his father to put on a happy face when the world can look so bleak. And it’s even harder when all you do is get dissed by your favorite girl.

If you like urban fiction and Bluford High in particular, be sure to check out the other books in the series:
