Last year, Jerry Flack was a dork. So this year, at a new school in a new town, he's decided to start a new life altogether -- as a Cool Kid. He's been preparing all summer: studying teen magazines, acquiring hair gel, and distressing his jeans. Things get off to a good start, and before you know it, Jerry's in, Rollerblading with the pros. But soon, Jerry finds himself tangled up in a complicated web of lies; and what's more, he's battling a terrible urge to put his glasses back on, join the science team, build a hovercraft, and, worst of all, date Brenda, a 100% geek. Does he really want to be a dork in disguise forever? Carol Gorman perfectly captures the horror and hilarity of the middle-school social scene in this fast-paced and funny take on what it really means to be yourself.
Jerry Flack can't forget that last year he was a dork. But this year, in a new town, at a new school, things have gotten better. His social life isn't quite as embarrassing as it once was. In fact, he feels almost normal. That is, until he thinks about running for class president. At first it seems like a great idea -- being in the Student government might even be cool. But before Jerry can even decide to run, he discovers that he already has an opponent: someone willing to do almost anything to get Jerry not to run -- someone who wants to convince the whole class that no one wants a dork for president. Is it worth the risk of running for class president if it means a return to the depths of dorkdom?

Malcolm stood on the curb as if he were frozen to the spot. The limo surged to life and, running the red light, roared off down the road. "What was that all about?" I asked him. "Who was in the limo?" "Jennifer Smith," he said. "Those guys in the limo kidnapped her!"
