"Kids, and the rest of the world, need more books like this one." —Kirkus Reviews

From John David Anderson, author of the acclaimed Ms. Bixby’s Last Day, comes a humorous, poignant, and original contemporary story about bullying, broken friendships, and the failures of communication between kids.

In middle school, words aren’t just words. They can be weapons. They can be gifts. The right words can win you friends or make you enemies. They can come back to haunt you. Sometimes they can change things forever.

When cell phones are banned at Branton Middle School, Frost and his friends Deedee, Wolf, and Bench come up with a new way to communicate: leaving sticky notes for each other all around the school. It catches on, and soon all the kids in school are leaving notes—though for every kind and friendly one, there is a cutting and cruel one as well.

In the middle of this, a new girl named Rose arrives at school and sits at Frost’s lunch table. Rose is not like anyone else at Branton Middle School, and it’s clear that the close circle of friends Frost has made for himself won’t easily hold another. As the sticky-note war escalates, and the pressure to choose sides mounts, Frost soon realizes that after this year, nothing will ever be the same.

Guest Post: Fill in the Blanks

1. My favorite part of POSTED is Game night at Wolf’s house.

2. In middle school I would have most likely been labeled as (scrawny boy, athletic, geek, troublemaker, etc.) Scrawny? Yes. Geek? Probably. Athletic? Ha! Troublemaker? Have you met my mother—she would have killed me. Probably I would have been labelled a nobody.

3. My favorite middle grade book is The Giver.

4. If I could pick any author (living or dead) to be my mentor, I would choose Walt Whitman. That man could yawp!

5. Star Wars, Episode IV was the last movie I saw. For the 20th time.

6. I am most excited about avoiding nuclear war in 2017.

7. If I could share one sticky note with the world, it would say: Keep an open mind and an open heart.

8. If I was in a rock band, I would be the piano player with the bad haircut and curly mustache.

9. Any beach, somewhere warm would be my perfect place to relax.

10. If I had to live in one of my books, I would choose to be Quinn in The Dungeoneers, because fireballs are cool, no matter what orifice they come out of.

John David Anderson is the author of Sidekicked, Minion, Standard Hero BehaviorThe Dungeoneers, Ms. Bixby's Last Day and Insert Coin to Continue. He lives with his patient wife and brilliant twins in Indianapolis, Indiana, right next to a State park and a Walmart. He does not wear ties but will wear sandals in the snow. He enjoys hiking, reading, chocolate, spending time with his family, playing the piano, chocolate, putting off the dishes, watching movies, and chocolate. Those aren't his real teeth. Seriously. The middle four on top? Lost 'em in a car accident. It's all right, though, the plastic ones look nice and he can still eat corn on the cob.

There are lots of ways to contact him. Telepathy, for example. Carrier pigeon. Alien distress beacon. Sky writing. Failing those, you can always e-mail him here. Be sure to tell him how his book has revolutionized your life, or, barring that, how you used it to smash a bug or something.
