ABOUT THIS BOOK

Fans of How to Survive Middle School will welcome the adventures of a contest-crazed seventh grader who uses his wits and way with words in hopes of winning a big cash prize to help his family avoid eviction.
 
Dear Royal-T Toilet Paper Company,

You guys make the best toilet paper. I realize that’s a weird thing for a seventh grader to say, but it’s true. I didn’t know how good I had it until the day it was replaced by scratchy (sand)paper.

 
Good toilet paper was the first thing to go. . . .
 
Your friend,
 
Benjamin Epstein
 
Benjamin is about to lose a whole lot more than good toilet paper. But even with his flair for clever slogans, will he be able to win a cash prize large enough to keep a promise he made to his dad before he died?

Praise for How to Survive Middle School
“Gephart maps the hormonal, emotionally torturous terrain of pubescent boyhood with realistic dialogue, well-developed secondary characters and age-appropriate humor and insight.” —Kirkus Reviews, Starred

Praise for As If Being 12 ¾ Isn’t Bad Enough, My Mother Is Running for President
Winner of the prestigious Sid Fleischman Humor Award
 
“Gephart’s novel succeeds completely as a fast-paced, funny, absorbing read.” —Children’s Literature Review
