    Overall

    This is a story of two friends, who had been friends up until middle-school. Kate Faber and Marilyn MacKintosh have cracks in their friendship. Ever since Marilyn became a cheer-leader, Kate rarely got to see her. Through a life guitars and big shoes, Kate can always depend on Marilyn to be her best friend. This is a story of friendship, drama, and a little bit of romance. I, for one, loved this book. I listen to it every night. I must have listened to the whole story 10 times.

    Story

    The chunky chick doing the peanut-butter and marmalade mash has gotten over 1000 hits, as Maureen's friends would tell her. Maureen felt embarressed until she met Bean-pole Barbara and Alergy-Alice. The three of them, together, were to be known as the Dorkasoruses. When they found out that there was a talent show at school, they knew this was their moment to take down the 3-P's (pretty, perfect, & popular). Can the Dorkasoruses compete against the 3-P's gymnastic, acrobatic act? Find out in this terrific story of friendship, humor, and underdogs meeting the challenge.
