Series Name: White Lightning

Themes: fantasy, being late, respect, friendship, schoolwork, parallel/alternate universe

Shawn always runs late. Always. He even turns homework in late but never seems to get in trouble. His grades are great. He's smart. Well liked. Except by Amanda. She's furious that he gets away with everything. They were friends once, but no more. Especially not in their video production class. The class had a big summer assignment. Now it's time to turn it in. Shawn hasn't even begun editing. To cut corners he uses a downloaded freebie app. But it's been hacked. The morning the project is due, he wakes up in an alternate universe. A place where he doesn't exist and nobody recognizes him. Except for Amanda.

White Lightning Books addresses a wide variety of themes and interests in a narrow range of reading levels, no higher than a 2.5. Middle school is a time of self-discovery, high energy, and hormonal change. It can also be a time of self-assertion and defiance. Students who struggle to read will often not recover from low reading achievement in elementary school if their particular interests are not addressed. Encouragement and finding the theme to "hook" them is key. There is a broad range of interest and abilities in this age group, even with struggling readers. These are not YA or elementary books a fact younger teens will appreciate.

Each book is approximately 100 pages with covers that will appeal to young teen readers. The titles in the White Lightning series are designed in a similar style. Students will know what to expect when they pick up a book: a fast-paced story, mature and age-appropriate topics, short chapters, and achievable reading success.
