Chris Tebbetts didn’t set out to become a professional co-author, but it just kind of worked out that way. Weirdly enough, all of his writing partners’ last names begin with P, so if you are looking for him on the library shelves, head over to that part of the alphabet. He has co-written the bestselling MIDDLE SCHOOL series with James Patterson; the STRANDED series with “Survivor” host Jeff Probst, and the young adult novel M OR F? with Lisa Papademetriou. His newest YA novel is ME, MYSELF, AND HIM, which he wrote all by himself.

Me, Myself, & Him

by Chris Tebbetts

When Chris Schweitzer takes a hit of whippets and passes out face first on the cement, his nose isn't the only thing that changes forever. Instead of staying home with his friends for the last summer after high school, he's shipped off to live with his famous physicist but royal jerk of a father to prove he can "play by the rules" before Dad will pay for college. Or . . . not. In an alternate time line, Chris's parents remain blissfully ignorant about the accident, and life at home goes back to normal—until it doesn't. A new spark between his two best (straight) friends quickly turns Chris into a (gay) third wheel, and even worse, the truth about the whippets incident starts to unravel. As his summer explodes into a million messy pieces, Chris wonders how else things might have gone. Is it possible to be jealous of another version of yourself in an alternate reality that doesn't even exist? (grades 9+)

The Worst Years of My Life (Middle School #1)

by Chris Tebbetts  & James Patterson

Rafe has enough problems at home without throwing his first year of middle school into the mix. Luckily, he's got an ace plan for the best year ever, if only he can pull it off: With his best friend Leonardo awarding him points, he tries to break every rule in the oppressive Code of Conduct. Chewing gum in class--5,000 points! Running in the hallway-- 10,000 points! Pulling the fire alarm--50,000 points! But when Rafe's game starts to catch up with him, he'll have to decide if winning is all that matters, or if he's finally ready to face the rules, bullies, and truths he's been avoiding.
