Darcy wills is a normal kid in high school, she is very bright and doesn't have a lot of friends. Her best friend is supposed to be Brisana Meeks, but she doesn't really act like one. Darcy starts to realize that not all the kids at Bluford High School are all bad, and she starts to make more friends. Tarah, Cooper, and Hakeem. They all become very close and Darcy likes this. Darcy also has a younger sister and is always worried about her because she hangs out with the wrong kids and is getting bad grades in school. Darcy has to be the one looking out for her because her mom is always so tired from working, because she is a nurse and does the night shift. One day Jamee, Darcy's younger sister, comes home and is all beaten up, she has a black eye and bruises all over her body. Darcy starts to worry even more. Darcy thought it was the boy Jamee had been seeing. Well and if that's not enough for Darcy to handle lets add in that her dad that had left her family five years ago shows up. Darcy thought it was some guy trying to kidnap her and she calls the police. Then just when you think everything is going to get better the most unlikely thing happens, Jamee runs away! Darcy and her new friends set out and try to find her, when Darcy begins to give up on all hope she calls her dad. Darcy's dad shows up and said they left one spot out, the mountain they use to go to when they were all a family. So they hurry up there and start calling her name, then all of a sudden her dad stops....he stops by the tree that he named Jamee princes of the forest under the last time they went hiking before their dad left. So in the end Jamee is ok and Darcy has new friends, their dad is trying so hard to come back in their lives and all is good.
