Doug Massey is an author who writes for teens. His new ebook/paperback, which I edited, is called Chicken Legs, and is the first in a series about teens who feel like they are misfits. The main character, James Corbett, is a scrawny kid who loves to run and to write. But he's not one of the most popular kids at his high school, where he has just started his freshman year. When he starts writing for the school newspaper and tackles some of the issues that bother him, like social cliques and bigotry, all hell breaks loose -- literally -- and he has to run mighty fast in lots of ways, not just on the track.
Your teens will love Chicken Legs -- it's funny, poignant, scary (at times) and inspiring.
