Felony Melanie and the Prank War by Douglas J. Eboch & Kris Bock
In high school, Melanie Smooter is known as Felony Melanie, the teenage troublemaker of Pigeon Creek, Alabama. Aching to escape the boredom of small-town life, her restlessness sparks many reckless adventures. Her boyfriend, Jake, is always by her side – and the local sheriff is usually close behind.
This week, everyone in town is looking forward to the big football game against Greenville, Pigeon Creek’s hated rivals. Jake is more excited than most – as the new quarterback, he’s poised for stardom. But the lead up to the game becomes as exciting as the game itself when pranksters from Greenville steal Pigeon Creek’s pig mascot. Then Jake’s playbook goes missing, which could get him kicked off the team. Could the pranksters have stolen it as well? Melanie, Jake, and their friends embark on an undercover mission to recover the stolen mascot and find Jake’s playbook before the team is disgraced in front of the whole town.

“Fun loving, laugh out loud read!!!!” – Christina D.
Oinkers wallowed in a little chicken-wire pen until it was time to run out on the field with the team or do his patented touchdown dance, the one Lurlynn had trained him to do. But now the pen was empty. The fireworks weren’t the prank, they were a distraction.
Lurlynn crouched down, hands over her cheeks. “Oh no.”
Melanie kicked at the gate post of the empty pen. Those Greenville High kids would pay for this. She’d make sure.
Jolene strode up. “You had one job!”
Lurlynn snuffled. “I’m sorry.”
“Sorry won’t help us beat Greenville.”
“I was only gone for a second.”
Jolene sighed. “There’s a tree stump in my backyard with a higher IQ. If you had an idea, it would die of loneliness.”
“Such a fun book to read! If you enjoyed Sweet Home Alabama this will be a treat.” – Mara B.
“This was frigging FANTASTIC! I wasn’t sure what to expect with the characters being modeled after the movie, but it was a blast! 😉 I haven’t had so much fun following characters through their escapades in a book before! So well written it was like watching a movie in my head! I can’t wait to read all of these!!! I highly recommend this book!”
