Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description:
Everybody needs friends? especially a boy in a dress!

Dennis? life is boring and lonely. His mother left two years ago, his truck driver father is depressed, his brother is a bully and, worst of all, ?no hugging? is one of their household rules. But one thing Dennis does have is soccer?he?s the leading scorer on his team. Oh, and did we mention his secret passion for fashion?

When Dennis? friend Lisa discovers his stash of Vogue magazines, she convinces him to vamp it up and wear a dress to school. But in class, his hilarious hijinks as ?Denise? are brought to a screeching halt when the headmaster discovers his secret and delivers the worst punishment of all?Dennis is expelled from school and therefore forbidden to play in the soccer Final Cup!

Can the team win the most important game of the year without their star player? And, more importantly, will Dennis gain the love and respect of his friends and family, even in a dress?
