BOOK REVIEW for "The Principal's Underwear is Missing" by Holly Kowitt

****(4) out of 5 stars


When you're a sixth-grade nobody, the last person you wan to accidentally zonk with a volleyball is Sloan "Selfie" St. Clair--the eighth-grade glamour queen of the school. But that's what happens to Becca Birnbaum, and it only gets worse when she tries to do Selfie a favor. She grabs the wrong shopping bag from the principal's office -- one containing a very personal item. and even that might not be so bad, if only Selfie didn't immediately lose it.

If they don't get it back ASAP, they're toast. They try not to panic--until they hear that the Biggest Prank Ever is about to happen. Can the school's oddest couple stop the disaster of a lifetime?


Even though I was not the intended audience for this book, and middle grade works in general don’t usually appeal to me, I still found it quite enjoyable. The story features who middle school girls who could hardly be more dissimilar. But through the course of some shared misadventures, they learn to appreciate what the other has to offer, and even end up being friends in the end. A great example of the good that can come from keeping an open mind and an open heart. While the premise of the story itself was entirely silly, the characters were quite well drawn, and the ultimate message of the tale was achieved without being overly pushy.

I received an eBook copy of this title from NetGalley and Rockstar Book Tours, and have willingly provided an honest review.
