Ashley Moore is a very busy teen. She's a great student and participates at Walden Lane High School in track, ASB, and the model UN. She loves school and her friends. One day she catches some boys cheating on a calculus test. What should she do? Nothing. But someone tells, and the boys are busted. They think Ashley has turned them in and plot their revenge. One of the boys uses social media to bully her. Her parents want to talk to the principal, but Ashley resists. She wants to solve the problem on her own. If she "kills" them with kindness, the whole thing will blow over. Could she be right? Walden Lane is a quintessential small city. And these chapter books describe a typical American family, with busy schedules and the usual problems. The series explores suburban life in a fun way, with topics appropriate for younger readers. These gentle reads are innocent, hopeful, and sometimes funny, with no unsettling surprises or storylines. Each book is 5,000 words (approx.) and 10 chapters.
