Orange Detention is a trio of middle-grade stories dealing with real-world challenges for children today. It's packed with humor, life lessons, and insight that speaks to our hearts.

Orange Detention is a trio of middle-school stories about real-life issues these children face today. The first story, Orange Detention, is a story about a fifth-grader whose great-grandfather holds a special place in her heart, a place she defends passionately. Locker 652 recounts the first day of sixth grade for a twelve-year-old boy with a huge pimple on his nose. What he learned in school that day wasn't taught in the classroom, and it changed his life. Coach Life is the story of a ten-year-old's perception of living in a trailer park, Magic Meadows. Her magnanimous heart and self-awareness explores life lessons for children and adults.
