GRADE A STUPID is the Amazon bestselling debut novel in the Darcy Walker Series. Readers call it Veronica Mars meets Stephanie Plum meets Pretty Little Liars. All novels in the series are written as stand-alones, but a backstory is woven into each book that blows up in a nuclear bomb in book four. The high school books are a Clean Mature YA series for ages 13 and up due to graphic crime scenes. Reading order for the high school years is Grade A Stupid, No Brainer, 100 Proof Stud, DEFCON Darcy & Foolproof. After that are the Side Hustle mysteries and Darcy Walker Investigations. They are a little grittier with big people problems.

About the Author

A. J. Lape's Darcy Walker Series broke into the Top 50 books in Teens Literature & Fiction within 36 hours of its release. It has spent numerous weeks in the Top 100 in Mystery Series and Teens, Mysteries & Thrillers Categories as well as being one of the Top Rated in its genre. A self-proclaimed neurotic and troublemaker at heart, A. J. was too hyper to read and didn't normally read anything more mentally stimulating than People magazine until she picked up her laptop on Friday, the 13th, and Darcy walked onto the page. A perfect day for A. J. consists of writing, watching her kids play sports, drinking Coke, then lounging in her pajamas by 8PM.
