To be or not to be a dork?
That is the question!

For starters, in order to raise money, Jerry plans a Shakespeare-themed Elizabethan festival. But before things even get off the ground, Jerry makes a deal with a bully to complete a series of humiliating dares. Can Jerry ever recover from dorkdom if he embarrasses himself in front of the whole school?

Carol Gorman is the author of many books for young readers, including Dork In Disguise, Dork on the Run, and A Midsummer Night's Dork. Ms. Gorman lives with her husband, writer Ed Gorman, in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, where she also teaches at Coe College.From School Library Journal:
Grade 3-6--In this sequel to Dork on the Run (HarperCollins, 2002), Jerry Flack has recently been elected class president, and the sixth-grade committee has decided to create an Elizabethan Festival to coincide with reading A Midsummer Night's Dream in language-arts class. The boy also persuades cool Zoey Long to befriend an unpopular girl and, with the help of his girlfriend, Brenda McAdams, musters the courage to stand up to a bully. With both humor and charm, Gorman illustrates middle-school life in the face of students' concerns about popularity and bullying. The characters are typical of kids found in every school, but Jerry and his friends turn out to be anything but ordinary. With his help, the children realize that popularity is more than beauty and coolness; integrity and compassion are what actually make a person cool. This honest portrayal of preteen socialization will entertain and enlighten.--Leigh Ann Morlock, Vernonia School District, OR
