About the book:
Between going out with his celebrity crush and his mom's campaign to be the next town mayor, Danny's got a lot to learn about life in the spotlight.
When Danny Constantino asks his old-friend-turned-Hollywood-movie-star, Natalie Flores Griffin, to his local school dance and homecoming parade, she surprises him . . . by saying yes! Unfortunately, now everyone in Cuper Cove has something to say about Danny's love life--especially since Natalie is the hometown hero. Throw in herds of TV reporters and NFG groupies, his mom using Natalie's arrival for free publicity, and a pep rally gone horribly, horribly awry, and Danny's left absolutely clueless in this new world of crushes and becoming (kind of) famous.
Paul Acampora writes novels and short stories for young readers. Kids, parents, and critics praise his work for its laugh-out-loud humor, rollicking dialogue, and heartfelt characters. His books include Defining Dulcie, Rachel Spinelli Punched Me in the Face, I Kill the Mockingbird, How to Avoid Extinction, and Confusion Is Nothing New.
“Danny and Natalie’s blossoming romance is well-drawn, and Acampora steers clear of treacle territory with deft deployment of subplots. . . . Every first date should be this charming.”—Kirkus Reviews
“A fast-paced, humorous escapade that tackles the social awkwardness of middle school dating. Authentic yet witty.”—School Library Journal
