Summary, etc.:
"Sunny's just made it to middle school . . . and it's making her life very confusing. All her best friend Deb wants to talk about is fashion, boys, makeup, boys, and being cool. Sunny's not against any of these things, but she also doesn't understand why suddenly everything revolves around them. She's much more comfortable when she's in her basement, playing Dungeons & Dragons with a bunch of new friends. Because when you're swordfighting and spider-slaying, it's hard to worry about whether you look cool or not. Especially when it's your turn to roll the 20-sided die." -- Provided by publisher.

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2019 September #2
    It's 1977 and Sunny's in seventh grade and coming up short on the groovy meter. Her best friend is into shopping at the mall, getting her ears pierced, and scoring a pair of Gloria Vanderbilt jeans. But Sunny's just been introduced to Dungeons and Dragons, and like many kids of the 1970s (and since), the game ignites her imagination and sense of camaraderie with her fellow players, all boys, and starts to take over her world. It comes down to a battle between what's groovy and what's fulfilling, and Sunny doesn't leave that choice to a roll of the dice. The deeper anxiety surrounding her brother's hard times, which are chronicled in Sunny's previous outings, is behind them—he's in the Navy and doing well. But Sunny's social concerns feel real and relevant, and her sincere devotion to the game could help middle-schoolers embrace what's truly meaningful to them. The zippy flow, snappy cartooning, and vibrant colors keep everything upbeat, even when Sunny is running from dreaded gelatinous cubes through dungeon hallways. Grades 3-7.
