This is one of many favorite authors! Her Christmas book is so much fun to read!
Chelsea Jamison has been infatuated with Drew Stirling longer than she's loved playing basketball, high-top sneakers, and the Knicks. Unfortunately, all Drew sees is the kid who kicked his trash in the high school free throw contest and not the girl whose heart breaks into a fast dribble when he's near.
Drew makes an unexpected visit home to Echo Ridge and their friendship picks up where they left off as they scheme to make a teenaged boy's Christmas dreams come true. When Chelsea realizes she's fallen for her best friend, she wonders if there is any hope of a relationship with Drew or if she's stuck in buddy-status for life. BUY LINK: Amazon

Only this time, she has a perky new stepmom and an annoying baby brother. To make matters worse, the sea of snobby rich kids at her new prep school pretend she's invisible. As if all that wasn’t bad enough, she has this gnawing sensation that she’s forgetting something important.
And then Trent Halstead crashes back into her life, bringing with him everything she's forgotten and the devastating news that there’s a coven of witches after her, and no one knows why—until Chloe discovers the answer in a box of old family photos. Now, she's keeping a secret that could save Trent's life. There’s just one problem: his salvation will come at a cost. Her destruction. And that’s a price she’s not sure she’s willing to pay.

This Third Book is for older Elementary Age & MIddle Grade Youth. In January 2020, Hugo Award-winning author and former professional wrestler Matt Wallace (Savage Legion) made his middle grade debut with BUMP
This book was graciously donated by Spark Point Studio - GoSparkPoint.com
Author Mark Oshiro (Anger Is a Gift and Each of Us a Desert) says “Reading Bump is having ringside seats to a touching, hilarious story that the world so desperately needs right now."
Exploring themes of self-discovery, community, racism, and processing grief, it would make a valuable addition to roundups and review collections this season!
Grade Level: 3 – 7, Reading Level 8-12 years; 288 pages
Publisher: Katherine Tegen Books (January 26, 2021)
With her mom working two jobs, no friends at school, and the loss of her father, MJ finds comfort in her love for wrestling, especially her admiration for the luchadores. When she discovers her neighbor runs a nearby wrestling school, she embarks on the journey to train hard, join the school, and fulfil her dreams. When it finally seems that things are going her way, her talent draws the eye of her neighbor’s enemy at the State Athletic Commission, who threatens to shut down her school. MJ will be put to the test in a fight she hadn’t trained for– one to save the school and her new family.
"Matt Wallace makes every pro-wrestling fan's dream come true in Bump. Not only does he know his way around a wrestling ring—he'll have you booing at the heels and cheering for the faces, just like you would ringside—but he knows how to tell a story. Middle-school gymnast turned wrestler MJ isn't just trying to find herself, but the courage to be herself, in a world where cliques, cruelty, unfairness, and grief beat you down. But Bump teaches you that, in life and Lucha, there's always a surprise move that can save you from defeat and pin your opponent—and your fears—down." (Carlos Hernandez, Pura Belpré Award-winning author of the Sal and Gabi series)
“My favorite books have two things: A world I’ve never seen before and a great character to experience it with. Bump delivers both in a heartfelt, powerful way. I loved stepping into the world of small-time professional wrestling with M.J. I winced every time she took a hit inside the ring and out, and I cheered every time she got up. What a great middle-grade debut. I truly cannot wait to see what Matt Wallace does next.” (Greg van Eekhout, author of Voyage of the Dogs and Cog)
“I love kids with big dreams, and MJ is a heroine to root for. Bump introduces readers to the world of professional wrestling while also telling a story about grief, friends that become family, and finding your voice. An entertaining and heartwarming read!” (Janae Marks, author of From the Desk of Zoe Washington)
“Cunning plotting and brisk action elevate this impressive tale of swords and super-science... Wallace masterfully subverts readers’ expectations... Readers will be left thoroughly satisfied and eager to know what’s to come.”(Publishers Weekly, starred review)
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Matt Wallace is the Hugo–winning author of Rencor: Life in Grudge City, the Sin du Jour series, and Savage Legion. He’s also penned over one hundred short stories in addition to writing for film and television.

Whoever said life would be easy … was a liar.
A car wreck took away his father and his leg. But a year later, thirteen-year-old Joseph McKinnon has a mission and it begins with an underground construction project in the woods.
Joe’s relying on Dad’s buddy Fred to get the supplies he needs and to keep things secret from Mom. Aside from that, Joe plans to finish the project alone—so he thinks. But help keeps knocking, people interfere, and the situation gets dangerous.
If that’s not enough, Joe must deliver two speeches in his language arts class and the only thing he fears more than public speaking is death—but there’s no escaping the inevitable. Or is there?
Accepting help from others wasn’t part of the original plan. Neither was lying so much. And while there’s no telling how deep his lies will go, he’s definitely dug himself a hole … twelve feet down.

About John Penteros
John Penteros is a math tutor and former engineer who resides in the thermal nightmare known as Arizona. As an engineer, he wrote long and tedious specifications, procedures, and reports peppered with "unprofessional" artifacts to see if anyone was paying attention. The occasional chuckling response lit a small fire within him, leading to other writing endeavors like the annual Christmas letter, which received mostly 5-star reviews.
John is also full of make-believe, and when he makes a statement to people who've known him for at least ten minutes, they know to ask themselves "Wait ... is he just kidding me?" Put those things together and you get.
