Sixth-Grade Glommers, Norks, and Me
Nork, dork or road chicken? The funniest slang and the coolest tale of figuring out who to be. As Allie Kimball enters the wilderness of middle school, life is suddenly changing. Smart and great at soccer, she’s become a ‘nork’ (a nerd and a dork). So much for having two talents. Meanwhile, while her pretty friend Tamara has turned into a ‘glommer’, sucking up to posh cheerleader Renee. Friendships, crushes, schoolwork; Allie hardly knows which way to turn. Will she end up as a ‘road chicken’ – dicing with death in the middle of the highway, unsure what side to be on?
