    Coming Soon-ish for middle-grade readers! 

    In the meantime, a few hints:




    Take a geeky kid with an EpiPen, an ambition to win the state Word Bee championship, and an alter-ego as Souperkid, the local soup company’s mascot.

    Add one drum-playing best friend and three talented bullies.

    Place in a middle school for the arts.

    Fold in a hint of magic and several bad decisions.

    Season liberally with humor. Add a dramatic ambush, and blend well.

    Yield: a MG novel about image-making, the power and price of celebrity, bullying, and a spontaneous act of generosity that might be the best revenge ever.
