Featured Book: Mall Hair Maladies by Kristy Jo Volchko

Our Featured Book, Mall Hair Maladies is a fun and funny 80's story.

Love the 80s? 

A laugh out loud, coming-of-age comedy with a heartwarming conclusion you won't see coming! Hold on for the ride as these bodacious, bubblegum-pop princesses skate you back through the days of bad perms, bathroom bullies, bogus curfews, boy crushes, and burping contests!

Pittsburgh, 1985 . . .
It's not easy being the new girl, but it doesn't take long for Randi Gattano to snag a new best friend as totally rad as she is. Randi and Tanya have everything in common-big hair, big dreams, big imaginations, and an even bigger obsession with scoring tickets to see their favorite pop queen live. 

How far will they go in their determination to let nothing stand in the way of the greatest night of their 13-year-old lives? And what will they ultimately learn about friendship, family, and fate?


"Kristy has done me a huge favor by writing this book. A fictional story that can take you back to the time when you were enjoying having boy crushes and them looking at you would make your knees weak and your whole week gold."

- Amazon Review

"Looking for that perfect "tween" book? This is it. And you might just want to share it with your mom. If she wants to reminisce about the good old "eighties." The era of big hair and rock stars and fashion icons. Mall Hair Maladies is a great title for this fun and touching story of two girls just entering their teens."

- Amazon Review

“…It reminds us that every generation has to struggle with coming of age and find ways to fit in while being true to one's self.”
