Things Are Gonna Get Ugly

Things Are Gonna Get Ugly

For Ages: 9 - 13
When Ernestine Smith moved to California, she reinvented herself as Taffeta— so successfully that she’s now the leader of the most popular clique at La Cambria Middle School. That is, until she’s caught cheating off brilliant but geeky Winslow Fromes and her teacher gives her the option of a fresh start. What Taffeta doesn’t realize is that Mr. Dribble can magically turn her back into Ernestine. The only way to become Taffeta again is to dance with Winslow at the Winterfest dance, but even Winslow wants nothing to do with a loser like Ernestine. Unexpected story twists and an accessible, cinematic style make H. B. Homzie’s first tween novel a perfect M!X book.
