Life as a sixth-grade dork:
comedy or tragedy?
Now that Jerry Flack is sixth-grade class president, he can't wait to come up with cool things for his class. In order to raise money, Jerry and his friends decide to put to use what they're learning about Shakespeare and host an Elizabethan festival.
But before he knows what has happened, Jerry's gotten himself into a terrible mess with the one boy who will do anything to make him look like a dork. And when Jerry decides to help a new friend rise from the all-too-familiar depths of dorkdom, the social scene at school gets more complicated than ever. Can Jerry get out of a jam without turning himself into the biggest dork in town?
In Gorman's third novel starring Jerry Flack, Jerry and the gang are studying Shakespeare. Soon, Jerry's navigation of the sixth-grade social scene turns into the kind of uproarious confusion that might be imagined by the Bard himself.
