Bluford Series: Breaking Point

Author Paul Langan has done it again, Townsend Press will be releasing another book in the popular Bluford Series later this fall. Teaming with author Karyn Langorne, the duo has penned, "Breaking Point." 
Check out the brief synopsis of the story below: 

Mom’s jaw tightened as the sound of the TV grew louder. Dad had turned it up.

“Be right back,” Mom huffed. Vicky knew her mother was trying to sound calm, but the way she marched out and shut the door said otherwise. Vicky braced herself.

Not again, Vicky thought. Not another fight. 

Vicky Fallon can’t take it. Her father has lost his job. Her parents are constantly fighting, and her troubled little brother is out of control. Once an honor student, Vicky is quickly falling behind in her classes at Bluford High. Now her teachers, friends, and new boyfriend, Martin Luna, want answers. Pressured from all sides, Vicky knows something is about to snap. 

Author, Paul Langan
But the explosion that hits her home is worse than anything she could imagine... 

The Bluford Series novels from Townsend Press appeal to tweens and teens regardless of ethnicity. The novels are approximately 200 pages, and encourage even the most reluctant reader to read from cover to cover. The stories contain real life themes, situations and are presented in a non-preaching manner. The series is very popular in schools and are used in middle school and high school classrooms/libraries across the United States. 

I can't wait to introduce this book to my avid readers this fall.


  1. I wonder why Townsend Press didn't stay with the realistic covers they developed for the Blufords.

  2. The realistic covers are produced by Scholastic Books for Children.
