Grandma Sally catapults the hearse over a speed bump, careening into Dorothy’s new middle school parking lot to the shrieks of Dorothy and her sister, Sam. Dorothy Moore becomes the fiery ring leader of a lively band of misfits, but she doesn’t even know it. A redheaded ball of enthusiastic contradictions, Dorothy is lucky to make it through a day without planting a foot in her mouth or into a hole. She has curly, orange pig tails, freckles and arrives at her first day of middle school in her old plaid Catholic school uniform, while every other student is dressed in hip, modern day style.
