I didn't know Robin had written Middle Grade!

Melissa: Check out her trilogy called Chasing Yesterday, as well as her stand-alone book Life, Starring Me! Wish You Were Here, Liza and Life, Starring Me! are both printed by Scholastic Candy Apple. Wish You... is the first in a trilogy about three middle school girls, best friends who spend the summer apart, and each volume is written by a different author and follows a different girl.

I love the Candy Apple books. I just got the first two in the Poison Apple line and read one yesterday. :)
