Title: Double Dog Dare

Author: Lisa Graff

KDL Description:


When Kansas Bloom moves to California and joins the Media Club at school, he soon finds himself trying to outdo one of the other fourth-grade students in a “dare war” while vying for the job of on-air video homeroom announcer.

Amazon Description:

What would you do to win a dare war?

In a humorous and insightful novel reminiscent of her award-winning titles The Thing About Georgie and Umbrella Summer, Lisa Graff tells the story of fourth-graders Kansas Bloom and Francine Halata, who start out as archenemies, until—in a battle of wits and willpower—they discover that they have a lot more in common than either would have guessed.

This dual-perspective novel will appeal to girls and boys alike—and to anyone who has ever wanted anything so badly that they’d lick a lizard to get it.
