Fat Boy vs the Cheerleaders

by Geoff Herbach

****Guest Post by Amanda B.****

The proceeds from the pop machine at Minnekota have always gone to the school band to help fund the summer marching band camp. When Gabe, aka Chunk, finds out camp won't be taking place and that proceeds from the raised soda prices are now going to fund a girl's dance team, he is furious. Along with the help of some fellow geeks and geek supporters, Gabe is hoping to save his beloved band.
Find out how this all goes down as Gabe shares the story with the officer who is interviewing him.

Told from Gabe's perspective this humorous  story is told as he is being interviewed by a cop. Along with the story at hand, there are some funny comments from Gabe about how the cop is reacting towards him. Gabe is also dealing with his weight issues and some family and friend drama along the way.

Evil Librarian

by Michelle Knudsen

So, your best friend has a crush on the new male librarian. Except he's a demon. And he's slowly sucking the life force out of everyone at school - teachers and students alike, including your best friend's soul. If this sounds familiar, then you are living life just like Cynthia. Which means that you would be trying to save the school play (Sweeney Todd), your own crush (the only other person to notice Evil Librarian's bat wings and horns), and everyone you know! Maybe you make some very poor choices along the way, but you end up a little stronger (okay, a LOT stronger) than you thought.

For fans of demon-teachers and magic and rituals and something other-worldly, who like a smart and very over-sharing narrator and anyone who likes their evil characters to be TRULY evil - I'm sure there will be a sequel. Not for the squeamish, though, and you may not look at your teachers or principal the same ever again!
