Young adult novels set in contemporary urban America

15 titles available for online listening, or can be downloaded for iPod or other mp3 reader.

The Bluford Series is a collection of fifteen young adult novels that focus on the lives of a group of high school students and their families. The series draws its name from the school which many of the characters attend: Bluford High, named after Guion "Guy" Bluford, America's first black astronaut.

Set in contemporary urban America, each novel addresses complex topics relevant to the lives of today's students: family, friendship, trust, isolation, violence, and peer pressure, to name a few.
