Cassie's back! The lovable heroine of MISS POPULARITY and MISS POPULARITY GOES CAMPING returns in a sweet and funny story about friendship, change, and the importance of lip gloss.

Cassie is so excited! Her best friends from her native Texas are coming to visit her in Maine for her birthday. Though bubbly, fashionable Cassie has adjusted to life in the cold, snowy, preppy Northeast, she still misses her girls from back home...and she can't wait for THEM to meet her Maine BFF, Etoile. But when the Texas crew arrives, disaster strikes! They don't like Etoile...and Etoile doesn't like them! Worse, Cassie starts feeling a little bit...embarrassed by her old friends. Can Cassie keep the peace while still looking fabulous?

Meet Cassie Knight. Bubbly, stylish, and super-friendly, she's the fashion queen at her Texas school. But when her father's job moves the family to cold, snowy Maine, Cassie's in for a huge culture shock. At her new prep school, the students are prim and proper, and worst of all, they don't find Cassie as fabulous as she knows she is!

Then Cassie comes up with a brilliant idea for the school fundraiser. If she can pull it off, she may just become Miss Popularity again... but if not, is she doomed to remain friendless forever?

Cassie Cyan Knight -- former Texas girl, forever fashion plate -- has finally started to adjust to life in preppy, rural Maine. But then Cassie learns that the sixth grade is going on a field trip... to a nature preserve! There, Cassie will have to endure hiking, camping and -- gulp! -- white-water rafting. Worse, how on earth is Cassie supposed to survive without cell reception and hair products?

But with a little luck, a lot of pluck, and her supportive best friend, Etoile, Cassie may just conquer the wilderness after all -- and teach her classmates a thing or two about camping in style!

Michael K. just started fifth grade at a new school. As if that wasn't hard enough, the kids he seems to have made friends with apparently aren't kids at all. They are aliens. Real aliens who have invaded our planet in the form of school children and a hamster.

They have a mission to complete: to convince 3,400,001 kids to BE SPHDZ. But with a hamster as their leader, "kids" who talk like walking advertisements, and Michael K as their first convert, will the SPHDZ be able to keep their cover and pull off their assignment?
