And not to just anyone. Her intended is a professional clown named Jarry -- Jerry Zuckerman, father of Lana Zuckerman, the meanest, toughest girl in school.

Grade 4-7-Guy Strange, hero of Regular Guy (1999) and Guy Time (2000, both HarperCollins), is desperate when his mom tells him she's getting married to Jerry Zuckerman, professional clown and father of Guy's worst enemy, Lana. He is determined to stop the romance, and for once Lana agrees with him. Along with Guy's buddy Buzz, they cook up a crazy plan that works-all too well. Guy's mom is heartbroken at her broken engagement, which makes Guy heartbroken as well. Telling the truth brings the couple back together, and it looks like Lana will be sleeping in the dining room and Guy will be moving in with his dad. Then, the happy couple surprises both children by purchasing a new house-one that just happens to be next door to Buzz. Their parents are happy. Buzz is happy. Guy and Lana are on the way to being happy. Sappy, isn't it? These ridiculous parents are too corny and over-the-top cutesy to be real, and they ultimately end up the heroes, with Guy and Lana playing typical kids forced to make the best of an unpleasant situation-that is, until the convenient, way-too-happy ending. This one may leave readers with the feeling of having eaten too much frosting on the wedding cake.
