Meet the Author: Melissa Thomson


We welcome Melissa Thomson, author of the Keena Ford series, to the bookstore! Melissa will present and sign her new book, Tito the Bonecrusher. This hilarious tale delivers a funny yet moving story about fathers, sons, and criminal justice.

Recommended for readers ages 8 and up.


Oliver "Spaghetti-O" Jones's dad is about to be jailed for a crime he didn't commit, and Oliver believes the only way to save him is with the help of his favorite lucha-libre wrestler turned action star, Tito the Bonecrusher. Together with his best friend, Brianna (a.k.a. "Brain"), and their new ally Paul "Popcorn" Robards, Oliver devises a madcap plan to spring his dad from a Florida correctional center. 

Heartwarming and hilarious, this book looks at what it takes to be a hero . . . and what happens when you realize that saving the day might not always be possible.
