Now in paperback, a laugh-out-loud middle-grade novel featuring three friends whose acts of kindess go terribly awry.


In the haze of a food-induced stupor, Zoey Dalton and her best friends Bean and Jenna make a pledge to begin performing random acts of kindness--anonymously. Their previous track record for altruism is pretty much a flat line, so anything they do to help others is bound to be an improvement.
Or is it?
What if the random acts of kindness are unwanted and misunderstood? What if, instead of spreading joy and good will, the trio's actions stir up trouble, wreak havoc and maybe even cause bodily harm?
That, of course, would be a different story. This story, in fact.

Editorial Reviews

PRAISE FOR RANDOM ACTS"The author also achieves the difficult feat of creating authentic middle-grade voices, especially with Zoey, a protagonist who strikes a near-perfect balance between self-deprecation and awkward charm, resulting in a complicated character capable of navigating the pitfalls of her actions in an entertaining and relatable way. " -- Quill and Quire"A very funny insightful novel about growing up that kids will love. Adults won't have any problems liking it either. -- FOUR STARS, CM Magazine
