About me . . .

The short 'n sweet version:


Brooks Benjamin lives in Tennessee with his wife where they both teach at the same elementary school. MY SEVENTH-GRADE LIFE IN TIGHTS (Random House) is his first novel.

The not-so-short but still sweet version:

In sixth grade, Brooks Benjamin formed a New Kids on the Block tribute dance crew called the New Kidz. His moves weren’t that good back then. But now he’s got a new crew—his wife and all his amazing students. He lives in Tennessee, where he teaches 5th grade and occasionally busts out a few dance moves. They're still not that good. MY SEVENTH-GRADE LIFE IN TIGHTS (Random House) is his first novel.
