Cute Boy Wars

 From the author of SLUMBER PARTY WARS; and **New** FAKE BOYFRIEND WARS

Love is war. At least to some girls at Jefferson Middle School—like Lacy Wallace. When another girl catches her crush’s interest, the war is on. Big time. Meanwhile in this middle school novel, Sara is trying to keep a distance from the school heartbreaker, Dane McGraw. But Dane is hard to resist—especially when he’s set his flirting, tempting heart on winning Sara’s. But Sara is in love (maybe, sort of) with her sweet boyfriend, Paul. However, while Sara is avoiding Dane, Paul seems to be avoiding her. What’s up with that?

This book used to be titled: “Love … Maybe … Wars.”

Middle-grade (tween/young teen) romance novel from Melanie Marks, the author of FALL FOR ME; and BEST FRIEND WARS
And **New** "MATT AND NICOLE (Middle School)" (Plus a LOT of other books)

Update: There is now a short story included in this book as well. The short story is titled, “Okay, He’s Nice (Maybe?).” It is volume three to Melanie Marks’ series “Middle School Powers.” (Volume one and two can be found in Melanie’s book “Fake Boyfriend Wars.”)

Melanie Marks' newest book is: Heartbreaker Hanson.

NEWEST books: "Kissing The Bad Boy"; "When You Noticed Me"; and "Jane's Air" (each a dollar!!)

HIS KISS series: *His Kiss *High School Boys *HER Kiss (Griffin) *Griffin *Griffin#2
*LOUDER THAN WORDS--(It's a standalone novel about Griffin's best friend from the hockey team, Mason Archer, and Mason's undying (secret) crush on the cheerleader, Summer Baker. A crush he's had since childhood.)
**HIS BEST FRIEND--(It's a standalone story, but also part of the His Kiss series, as it's about Ally's best friend Jazz, and Jazz's crush on her neighbor ... and stalker.)

Still NEWISH books: "HER KISS (Griffin)"--it's Griffin's story about Ally. Sort of his version of the book, His Kiss. (Also Melanie's books "GRIFFIN"; and "GRIFFIN #2" are available now as well.)
New book--"Louder Than Words"--is a standalone novel about Mason and Summer and their life-long secret crush on each other. The book is kind of part of the Fall For Me series, because it's about Zoey's best friend, the cheerleader, Summer Baker. But it is also sort of the His Kiss series because it's also about Griffin's best friend from the hockey team, Mason Archer. (In any case, the book is a standalone and no other book needs to be read before it.)

Destined for Doon

 In this sequel to Doon, Mackenna Reid realizes she made a horrible mistake in choosing to follow her dreams of Broadway instead of staying in the enchanted land of Doon. To make everything worse, she's received her Calling—proof she and Duncan are each other's one true love—and it's pure torment, especially when visions of the very alluring Scottish prince appear right before she goes on stage. So when Duncan tells her an ancient curse threatens to overtake Doon and the new queen and Kenna’s best friend, Veronica, needs her to return, Kenna doesn't have to think twice. With darkness closing in on all sides, Kenna and Vee must battle a world of nightmares in order to protect the kingdom. But it will take the ultimate test of courage for Kenna to salvage her happily ever after.
