Okay, he’s Chase. But who is Chase? Soon he’s hearing stories of the alpha jock and bully who held a reign of terror over an entire school. Is that the person he was … and is destined to be again?
Is it possible to restart?

A FACELIFT FOR NO MORE DEAD DOGS AND THE 6TH GRADE NICKNAME GAME
Even in this fractured world where no one can agree on anything, surely we can all be united against dogs dying. Great news – Disney-Hyperion is repackaging NO MORE DEAD DOGS and THE 6TH GRADE NICKNAME GAME as part of a major rerelease of my backlist.
SLACKERS OF THE WORLD UNITE!
Check out SLACKER, my newest stand-alone novel, about a video-game addicted couch potato whose quest to protect his slacker lifestyle accidentally turns him into the greatest student leader in the history of middle school.

THE HOLIDAYS HAVE BEEN SWINDLED
Calling all SWINDLE fans! The latest book in the series – JINGLE – is here! The Man With The Plan is back – and this time he’s got holiday spirit!

Now Griffin and the team have to solve the mystery and catch the real thieves just to clear their names and avoid being Scrooged. And what a cover! Luthor in a Santa suit – there are no words …
THE MIND-BENDING CONCLUSION OF THE HYPNOTISTS!
HYPNOTISTS fans – the wait is over! Book 3: THE DRAGONFLY EFFECT is finally here. In THE DRAGONFLY EFFECT, Jax has been recruited by the U.S. Army’s Hypnotic Warfare Research Department. But Dr. Elias Mako has escaped from prison, and this time he has a plan to use mesmeric power to bring the entire world to its knees. As many of you know, THE HYPNOTISTS is my first-ever series to deal with the paranormal, and it has an extra-special place in my heart. I can’t wait for everyone to read THE DRAGONFLY EFFECT!
READ MY SHORT STORY "THE TROPHY"
When Jon Scieszka approached me about contributing to a short story collection spun from his wildly successful Guys Read program, he originally had me in mind for the anthology focusing on humor. But I had another idea – sports.
I’ve written a lot about sports over the years, from my young adult novel POP, to the SLAPSHOTS series, all the way back to MACDONALD HALL days and THE ZUCCHINI WARRIORS. THE TROPHY is my latest – originally published in GUYS READ: THE SPORTS PAGES.
