Trade Paperback

In this middle-grade novel, Marco's in love with Benji, but winning his heart may be mission impossible.

Best friends Stephen and Marco attempt a go-for-broke heist to break into the high school prom and get Marco onstage to confess his love for (and hopefully steal the heart of) Benji, the adorable exchange student and bass player of the prom band. Of course, things don't always go according to plan, and every heist comes with its fair share of hijinks.

Marco Impossible by Hannah Moskowitz is a fun middle-grade book by the author of the young adult novels Not Otherwise Specified, A History of Glitter and Blood, and many more.
