When Ernestine Smith moved to California, she reinvented herself as Taffeta— so successfully that she’s now the leader of the most popular clique at La Cambria Middle School. That is, until she’s caught cheating off brilliant but geeky Winslow Fromes and her teacher gives her the option of a fresh start. What Taffeta doesn’t realize is that Mr. Dribble can magically turn her back into Ernestine. The only way to become Taffeta again is to dance with Winslow at the Winterfest dance, but even Winslow wants nothing to do with a loser like Ernestine. Unexpected story twists and an accessible, cinematic style make H. B. Homzie’s first tween novel a perfect M!X book.
H. B. Homzie’s background as a writer and performer of sketch comedy informs her first novel for tweens. Her Aladdin chapter book series Alien Clones from Outer Space as been adapted as an animated TV series in Australia and may be shown in the United States in the future. She lives in Napa, California, with her family.
