Praise for Project Startup:

I totally enjoyed this book. It’s fast and funny—and how scary is it to start a business that asks you to eat BUGS?!”
—R.L. Stine, New York Times bestselling author of Goosebumps
An unusual, inspiring, and intriguing story….”
Inspired by the true story of two friends who landed a deal on Shark Tank. Sixth-grade students-turned-entrepreneurs are on a mission to build a buzz-worthy business with a message: Eat what bugs you!
When Hallie and Jaye are paired up as partners for a pitch competition held by their Business Education and Entrepreneurship class, it’s far from a perfect match. Jaye dreads working with Hallie, who everyone at school calls “Bug Girl” after she ate a fried cricket during a class trip to the zoo. Then she hears Hallie’s zany startup idea: finding creative ways to sell bugs as food. Eat bugs? No way! thinks Jaye.
But maybe Hallie’s idea isn’t so wacky after all. It’s a great solution to food sustainability. And really healthy, too. In fact, eating bugs just may be their best shot at winning the school competition. If they win, they’ll compete in the county competition, potentially followed by states and nationals. And, more than anything, Jaye wants to win.
Enough to eat a bug. Or two.
