Middle school may be tough, but Charlie Burger has a plan for how he'll get through it: mind his own business and stay out of the limelight. But sixth grade has other plans for Charlie. His best friend, Franki, starts acting weird-since when does she like to dance?-and everyone from his mom to his soccer coach is on his case all the time. Worst of all? The school bully, Boomer Bodbreath, seems to think Charlie has a bull's-eye on his back.
When Charlie's eccentric science teacher hands out writing journals instead of beakers and goggles, Charlie is convinced his year can't be saved. That is, until he starts writing stories about Dude Explodius, an awesome, studly superhero-and those stories start coming true.
Can a kid who's used to the sidelines suddenly take a shot at saving the world?

Author Biography

Gretchen Kelley is the mother of four children—two teens and two tweens. Her years as a mom and a substitute teacher allow her to do one of her favorite things: spend lots of time hanging out with kids. After living in Louisville, Kentucky, Gretchen and her family moved to Abu Dhabi, where they now live during the school year. In the summers, they spend time in Rockport, MA, which was the inspiration for Charlie Burger’s hometown. When she’s not writing, Gretchen can be found screaming at soccer matches, planning her family’s next trip to a cool location, or running on the beach, thinking up some new story ideas. Superheroes Don't Eat Veggie Burgers is her first book.
