Publisher's Summary

Darcyville...where stupidity is celebrated...with a deadly dose of sin.
Fifteen years ago, Darcy Walker's parents thought it was a good idea to give her a unique name: Darcy, meaning "dark walker". Whether that was a stroke of genius or stroke of stupid, they definitely nailed the irony. She lacks direction, her grades stink despite a high IQ, she's boringly average - although flirting admirers claim otherwise - and God help her, she's infatuated with a bad-boy.
A bad-boy that her hottie best friend, Dylan, wishes would get acquainted with his fist.
And, oh yeah, there's that tattoo that was a royally stupid idea.
With her life spiraling out of control, everything changes when she skips class and finds a dead fact, it gets worse. It jump-starts Darcy's inner-verb, and her brain hardwired for action gets caught up in a situation she can't let go.
Set in the fictional Cincinnati town of Valley, Ohio, Darcy's story falls into a world of threats, violence, and gangland exploits chasing down every clue to finger the murderer. When a fellow misfit is fingered for the crime, Darcy goes from zero to 60 trying to clear his name - constructing aliases, breaking the law, everything that makes perfect sense to her but reeks of Grade A Stupid to everyone else.
Trouble is...will she live to see 16?

Perfect Voice For Darcy

What did you love best about Grade A Stupid?

This story will have you laughing from the beginning to the end. Darcy sure knows how to get herself into trouble. She is a 15 year old girl who has a mind that thinks different that other fifteen year olds. The words that come out of her mouth will make you laugh so hard that if you are around anyone they will want to know what is so funny. This story has everything from blossoming romance to murder mystery. What else do you need in a story? There are so many characters in this story that you will not figure out the mystery until the very end. Just when you think, all the mysteries are solved, we have more at the end so now onto the next book in this series to find out what else Darcy will get into. This author is amazing with how she keeps up with all these characters in this story. Loved this story and this is the second time I have read it. Just as good as the first time.

What other book might you compare Grade A Stupid to and why?

No Brainer and 100 Proof Stud. They are part of this series.

What does Patricia Fructuoso bring to the story that you wouldnā€™t experience if you just read the book?

She brought out many different tones of the characters and since Darcy is a teenager and gets into so much trouble, it is brought to life. We get to hear and it all sounds like a movie coming to life.
