8th Grade Superzero

Some kids get nicknames in junior high. Some of those nicknames are even cool. But Reggie McNight’s nickname isn’t cool at all and it is a daily reminder of a very embarrassing event. His nickname? Pukey.

All Reggie wants now is to be invisible, operating under the radar…at least until everyone forgets about “the event.”

How is it then, that Reggie ends up running for class president? Why is he willing to put himself under the scrutiny of his peers again? After volunteering his time at a local homeless shelter, Reggie discovers he cares about something more than restoring his image.  He cares enough to step out of the shadows, after all,  “eighth grade isn’t all there is to life.” Here here. Pukey for President! #Stand4Peace Author: Olugbemisola Rhuday Perkovich

Bobby vs. Girls (Accidentally)

Bobby vs. Girls (Accidentally)

Bobby vs. Girls

Bobby and Holly have been friends since forever. They know boys and girls aren’t usually best friends and they know their friends at school wouldn’t understand, so they have a strategy they call “The Parting Place”.  They walk to school together everyday, but when they get to “The Parting Place” about a block from their school, Bobby speeds up and Holly slows down…just so they won’t be seen together. It works.

But then the week before fourth grade starts, Bobby starts to notice some weird things about Holly. She starts caring about her hair and misses a traditional rock hunting afternoon with Bobby because she’s going shopping with Jillian. On the first day of school their friendship hits a definite bump in the road:

“Hey Bobby, wait up!” Holly was running to catch up to him.

Bobby stared at her in disbelief. “Why are you wearing that? It’s not Halloween.”

Holly smoothed the sleeve of her light blue dress. The big white bow around the waist reminded him of toilet paper. “It’s new,” She said proudly, “Do you like it?”

Bobby shook his head. “Nope.”

Oh, man. NOT smooth. And it’s downhill from there!  When Bobby and Holly are both nominated to run against each other in their class election for Student Council Representative an all out boys vs girls war begins. What’s the best strategy when your arch rival knows your weaknesses and all your secrets? Game on! #Stand4Peace Author: Lisa Yee
