Marci and Summer are two teenage girls who live in an uninteresting town, Glenwood, Indiana. Their remotest possibilities for tonight’s dance, the twins Rod & Tod, are too gross for dates…their favorite stunt is burping the alphabet. Marci and Summer work for “Weird Doris” who owns a junk shop. One day, Doris brings back a box that she bought for seventy-five cents that contains a ring. Not thinking, she slips the ring on and wishes for different hair. “Poof!” Suddenly, Doris has the hair of Marge Simpson. Marci and Summer can immediately see some exciting possibilities in this magic ring.

Find out the wacky adventures of Marci, Summer, Doris, Hank the Handyman, Jennifer Miller, the very popular girl, Rod and Tod and a cast of other funny characters in Rat Boys: A Dating Experiment.  (Melissa Bowman,, Armstrong Middle School,  Lone Star Book Award nominee, 2003-2004)
