This Dance Is Doomed, Holly Kowitt's sequel to The Principal's Underwear is Missing, the second in her middle-grade illustrated series, explores friendship and the high cost of Prom-Mania--with hilarious results!

Can a 6th grade nobody solve a diva's dating problems?

Selfie St. Clair is the most popular, glamorous 8th grader the school has ever seen. Everyone's sure she'll go to Prom with a teen TV star, or even a minor prince.

But Selfie has a terrible secret: no-one has asked her. Too embarrassed to tell her "cool" friends, she turns to the most unlikely dating coach ever: 6th grader Becca, who's never had a date in her life.

But some people think Prom fever is out of control. In fact, Becca's closest pals are planning an anti-Prom! Now she's torn between her besties and her new superstar friend.

Not to mention, an impossible crush of her own...
