Dear Reader,

When I was twelve years-old, I "started a business" called The Anything Shop. My "office" was the storage/laundry room off of our carport where my dad stored a big oak desk that I claimed as my world headquarters. 

That memory was the springboard for MIDDLE SCHOOL'S A DRAG, YOU BETTER WERK! and the character of twelve-year-old Mikey Pruitt, kid entrepreneur and President, Founder, and CEO of Anything, Inc. All of Mikey's business ideas have failed, but he never gives up. He's always sure that his next business idea will be the big one. When Mikey meets a thirteen-year-old aspiring drag queen who's looking for an agent, the Anything Talent and Pizzazz Agency is born. 

While building his new business, Mikey navigates social land mines at school as a kid who knows he's gay but is afraid to come out and be himself.

Email for a chance to win a free copy. I hope you enjoy Mikey's journey.

Don't be afraid to sparkle!
