Overview

Bestselling author Nancy Krulik delves into the mind of a twelve-year-old trying to survive middle school.

It's time for the annual winter dance. As part of the student council, Jenny and Addie are on the planning committee. But since it's going to be held in the school gym, no one's excited about the dance. What everyone is excited about is superstar pop singer Cody Tucker's tour. It turns out Addie's dad's company is one of the tour sponsors, and Addie says she can get Cody to perform his new hit single at the dance! Suddenly, ticket sales skyrocket. There's just one problem: Addie was totally bluffing. Now it's up to Jenny to help Addie save face--and the dance!

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jody Little
Jenny is part of the planning committee for the winter dance along with her former best friend, Addie. When Jenny overhears Addie bragging about how her dad knows Cody Tucker, everyone's favorite teen pop star, Jenny suggests that maybe Addie could ask Cody to perform at their dance. Everyone is thrilled with this idea, but Jenny soon learns that Addie was not exactly honest. Her father does not really know Cody Tucker at all. Despite her differences with Addie, Jenny comes up with a plan to talk to Cody Tucker and perhaps convince him to sing just one song at their school dance. As one story in the series, "How I Survived Middle School," this edition is filled with quizzes about boyfriends, dresses, and manners. Jenny and her friends deal with issues of acceptance, popularity, and believing in who you are. The writing is formulaic, and the characters feel younger than middle school. Fourth and fifth grade girls may find the story appealing, Reviewer: Jody Little
