for Middle School Stinks!
by Steve Henry
A story of Likey Sinclair, his sort of girlfriend, the bully who wants to kill him and, oh yeah, a ghost girl. Likey has more than a few problems and each one is a mystery. His buddy since birth, Giselle, is acting as if she wants to be more than just friends, but Likey is clueless about how to make that happen. Then there's The school bully, Duke, who for some unknown reason would like to pound Likey into the ground. Add into all this a ghost girl who's been trapped in the town's basketball gym for too long, and Eric, the new kid in school. He says he can help, but only if Likey helps him find his long lost dad. And now you know why, at least for Likey...Middle School Stinks!
