Today marks Gordon Korman's birthday! Author of dozens of middle-grade and teen fiction chapter books, this prolific writer started his career while he was still in school. He wrote his first book when he was in the 7th grade, and it was published when he was in the 9th grade. Pretty cool being a published author AND a high school student!
After his first book, That Can't Be Happening at MacDonald Hall (available through SearchOhio), Mr. Korman went on to publish several other stories from MacDonald Hall before branching out with series like Swindle, Everest, and Titanic as well as standalone novels like Maxx Comedy, The 6th Grade Nickname Game, and Schooled. Current novels include Whatshisface, Restart, and Slacker. And Nickelodeon even produced a movie version of Swindle in 2013. We have all these (plus many more!) waiting for you to check out from the library.
