It’s a hoot reading about the teenage adventures of Melanie’s that she was teased about in the movie. A must read for Sweet Home Alabama fans.” – Kerri W.

Meet teen “Felony Melanie” years before the events of the movie Sweet Home Alabama in this laugh-out-loud romantic comedy series.

Summer is almost over, so it’s time to have some fun! Jake and his buddies are fixing up old cars so they can destroy them in the Pigeon Creek demolition derby. After all, what’s more fun than smashing into things?

Girls don’t do demolition derby. Everyone says so. But Melanie is tired of sitting on the sidelines. Why should the guys have all the fun? She can smash up a car as well as anyone! 

The guys don’t want a girl intruding on their turf, and it’s not so easy for a broke teenager like Melanie to find and fix up an old car. She recruits some helpers and unearths an old, junked car, but everyone from Jake to the sheriff wants to keep her off the track.

Is the town ready for a female demolition derby driver? Is anybody ever ready for Felony Melanie?

“Laugh out loud funny with high school hi-jinx during a small town’s annual celebration. Melanie is a sixteen year old who has a handsome boyfriend, a good circle of friends, a mom who wants the best for her, and a penchant for trouble. She’s not actively looking for trouble, it just seems to follow her everywhere!” – ReadingForRelaxation

Melanie stepped in front of Jake. Her blue eyes flashed. “We’ve wasted half the day on your stupid car. I want to go to the swimming hole.”

Jake looked over at Clinton and Eldon, but they were studying the car, avoiding eye contact. He didn’t want them calling him whipped.

“I’m sorry, Mel. We only got a week. We’ve got to get on this axle thing.”

“Fine. You don’t have time for me? Maybe I don’t have time for you either. I’m not going to wait around to cheer from the sidelines while you boys have all the fun.”

She stood as tall as her little frame would allow. “I’ll get my own car for the demolition derby. Then we’ll see what’s what.”

Jake stared, his mouth half open. She had to be joking.

Snickers erupted from Clinton and Eldon.

Melanie swung toward them, her hands fisted on her hips. “What’s so funny?”

“No-nothing,” Clinton choked out.

Eldon slapped his knee. “Just trying to picture you manhandling a big old junk car around the demolition lot. Or would that be girl-handling?”

“You going to sit on a phone book?” Clinton doubled over in laughter.

Jake let out a chuckle. He dragged his face back into a serious expression and glanced at Melanie, but it was too late. Her eyes had narrowed, and her stubborn little chin was set. Dammit, they shouldn’t have laughed. He might have been able to talk her down. No way would she back down now.

Melanie spun on her heels. “Come on, girls, we need to find a car.” 

“This is a book that you can’t put down. It’s filled with action, well-drawn fun characters, and Southern charm. Guarantee!” – Suzanne B.
