About the books:

Middle School Bites

Tom is desperate to fit in at school, but he's hungry and howling, not to mention half dead. Blame it on the vampire—and the werewolf—and the zombie—in this monstrously funny series launch. With the help of his irrepressible best friend, Zeke, Tom tries to accept his future. Zeke thinks being a Vam-Wolf-Zom sounds EXCELLENT, but will the rest of Hamilton Middle School accept agree?

Middle School Bites 2: Tom Bites Back

Tom’s neighbors and classmates seem to have accepted him and he’s developing some cool powers. But then the bat that bit Tom shows up again. Tom's laugh-out-loud adventures continue as he navigates normal sixth grade stuff - singing in a band, dressing up for Halloween, tolerating his older sister—despite being the only Vam-Wolf-Zom known to humankind.

Middle School Bites 3: Out for Blood

Tom’s being tracked down by the werewolf that bit him. Should Tom join a wolf pack? On the one hand, he could give up school and homework forever. On the other hand, he'd miss his band, his friends, and Annie, his maybe-possibly-someday girlfriend. What’s the world’s only Vam-Wolf-Zom to do?

Middle School Bites 4: Night of the Vam-Wolf-Zom

Even the nicest monster can't help when it comes to figuring out the rules for sixth grade, though. Looks like Tom is on his own as he deals with band arguments, a suddenly-friendly-but-formerly-mean bully, and even a first kiss. Add in dealing with the trio who turned him into a Vam-Wolf-Zom and you’ve got a recipe for hilarity!
