Dork in Disguise

Dork in DisguiseDork in Disguise by Carol Gorman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Every middle schooler (and older, I'll bet) should read this book.

Thank you, NetGalley and Open Road Integrated Media, for this free book to review!
Jerry Flack is starting middle school in a new town where no one knows him and he can be anybody he wants. Jerry has a plan: He is finally going to be cool. But that turns out to be easier said than done. As his lies begin to pile up, Jerry knows he’s going to slip up soon, and everyone will see him for who he really is.

Can Jerry keep the act going? Or is it possible that a dork can actually be . . . well, cool?
What I liked:

1. Jerry is a protagonist that could relate to a lot of people. Who doesn't want to be cool?

2. He does things outside of school, such as science projects, teaching his dog how to collect newspapers, ect. His world doesn't revolve around school drama.

What I didn't like:

1. I wish Cinnamon could have been put in her place. She needs to realize her problems.
Love Letters To the Dead by Ava Dellaira (um...deja vu?) | Notebook Sisters
Will I read the next book, Dork on the Run? I doubt it. I don't feel like this needs a sequel, except to deal with Cinnamon.
