Synopsis
Katie Kelso, a feisty 7th grader, is determined to become a P.K. (popular kid). Katie faces real challenges. An intelligent student with a learning disability, she hesitates to join the literary magazine because she can't spell. Katie's social life is further complicated by her mother's illness and the responsibility of babysitting her annoying younger brothers. Attracting the amorous attention of Scuba, a “cool jock” and Brian, a brilliant introvert, Katie is forced to rethink the meaning of “popularity.” Her empathy, spunk and determination lead to an unexpected first date in a chauffeured limousine. Written with humor, this fast-paced script and accompanying Teacher's Guide provides a lively springboard for young people to recognize and discuss a most socially relevant issue . . . the challenges and rewards of growing up with a learning difference.
