Middle grade book title? (Read 227 times)


    If you teach that age group why don't you do some market research? Run a top 5 by them.


    I have.  Nothing has really jumped out with them either.  I still like "O.K. is Great" but we're looking around for something else too.  It's a long way from getting published, so I'm just looking for that lightning bolt of a title, I guess.


    Maybe I'll run another survey with a different group since I have some good ideas with this thread.  I'll stick "O.K. is Great" in there too.

    Revenge of the Nerd

      Here's my literary agent's suggestion, but it has nothing to do with running.


      O. K. and the Star Wars Lunch Box.


      Is that any good?


      I find your agent's lack of creativity disturbing. 


      Maybe Showdown which ties into the OK Corral mythos.  Or to put a modern spin on it - Throwdown.  Throwdown at Boykinville.

        I'm not thrilled by the options with "Mile" in the title.  How about


        • It's not OK for Otis
        • It's not OK for OK
        • OK or Not OK
        • Otis is OK
        • OK, Now What?

        Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject. - S.J.


          I like the O.K. Corral ideas.  Here's a few I had in mind.
