5.0 out of 5 stars Dork in Disguise 29 Mar. 2006
A Kid's Review - Published on
Format: Paperback
A boy named Jerry Flack is starting junior high and he really wants to change his whole personality just to be popular. He was used to being the big science nerd of his elementry school and now he would try so hard to be like the popular Gabe, who is the cool skateborder and Cinnamon, the most beautiful girl in school. He wants to be just like them, hang out with them, and be known throughout the school just like them.

He later meets his best friend named Brenda who tries to teach him that he is cool in his own way and that he didn't have to be like everyone else to prove that. Jerry goes through some pretty hard times to figure that out. But to figure out the rest you need to read this wonderful book. It might even teach you that you need to be your own person and that everyone is cool in their own way. This book was wonderful to be an it will be for you too.

A Kid's Review - Published on
Have you ever been a dork, and one day your parents tell you that you are moving? What would you do? Well, I know what Jerry Flack is doing. He's studying on how to be cool. He's been working all summer on how to be a cool kid in his new school. What happens next is all in the story of Dork in Disguise by Carol Gorman.

Jerry is starting the sixth grade in Nathaniel Hawthorne Middle School, where no one knows him, and he doesn't know anyone. As his mother drops him off, he quickly removes his glasses, so he doesn't look like a geek. Of course, now the whole world is blurry. He manages to find his way to his first class a girl asks him "shouldn't you have your glasses on?" The blurry girl introduces herself as Brenda. She noticed that he was squinting and had marks on his nose from his glasses. Jerry tells her that he doesn't like wearing his glasses. Through most of the book Jerry keeps trying to be someone he's not. On the inside, and to the reader, Jerry admits that he's telling lies and not being himself. In the end, he learns a valuable lesson.

I think this is a good book because it has a lot of interesting twists and turns, and keeps your attention. Most of the time it seems a lot like real life in middle school with the problems that a lot of kids face.
