Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The King of Rock n Roll lives! And hes Joshs dad.

When 13-year-old Josh finds out that he has to stay with his dad in Chicago for a few months, hes not too thrilled. But when he arrives at the airport, hes simply devastated. His father—who used to be a scatterbrained but pretty normal shoe salesman—has become . . . Elvis. Well, a sideburnwearing, hip-twisting, utterly-embarrassing Elvis impersonator.

Josh is determined to keep his dads identity a secret, but on his very first day at his new school, a note appears on his locker. Its signed Elvisly Yours, and instead of a name, a sneering purple smiley face. The secret is out, and when his dad is invited to perform at a special 50s concert at his school, Josh is forced to take drastic action. From award-winning author Shelley Pearsall comes a hilarious novel about discovering the important (and sometimes painful) difference between who you want to be—and who you really are.

“Alternately wry, silly, thoughtful and laugh-out-loud funny.”—BookPage
