Current Mood: thirsty
Current Song: Sleep by Azure Ray

Scholastic's Candy Apple imprint is well-named. It's a sweet line of books which address the ups and downs of middle school life as the protagonists deal with parents, best friends, tryouts, afterschool activities, homework, popularity, first crushes - all that fun stuff, all contemporary fiction, all G-rated. (Hurrah for clean reads!) This imprint is for readers ages 8 to 13.
