I received this book at no cost from the publisher or author.The Principal's Underwear Is Missing by Holly Kowitt
Published by Feiwel & Friends on May 2nd 2017
When you’re a sixth-grade nobody, the last person you wan to accidentally zonk with a volleyball is Sloan “Selfie” St. Clair–the eighth-grade glamour queen of the school. But that’s what happens to Becca Birnbaum, and it only gets worse when she tries to do Selfie a favor. She grabs the wrong shopping bag from the principal’s office — one containing a very personal item. and even that might not be so bad, if only Selfie didn’t immediately lose it.
If they don’t get it back ASAP, they’re toast. They try not to panic–until they hear that the Biggest Prank Ever is about to happen. Can the school’s oddest couple stop the disaster of a lifetime?
Holly Kowitt has written more than fifty books for younger readers, including the Loser List series. She lives in New York City, where she enjoys cycling, flea markets, and West Coast swing dancing.
This is a very fun and silly read about Becca, a sixth grader who is trying hard to stay invisible. Then she hits the most popular girl in school and breaks her arm. Becca believes that anyone nicknamed “Selfie” and uses it really shouldn’t be allowed to exist. When their worlds collide, Becca knows she must apologize for accidentally breaking Selfie’s arm and by trying to make it up to her, she becomes involved in an almost disaster of epic proportions.
Selfie convinces Becca that she needs to go get her shopping bag from the principal’s office but instead of grabbing the correct bag, she is handed one containing the principal’s bra. Of course, the bra goes missing right after Selfie shows it off to her friends. Now Becca and her nerdy friends are trying to outwit someone who wants to create a scandal of epic proportions.
Overall, this story is really geared toward the younger middle-grade set that will be loved by those who like a little scandal in their stories. It is a fun and quick read but I think it might bore older teens. There are adorable graphics that help you picture each character. This should be a natural for kids who enjoy Captain Underpants.
