Summary
"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?"--Jacket
Summary
Soccer star Dennis hides the truth about his enthusiasm for fashion until his friend Lisa encourages him to dress in drag at school and embrace the persona of "Denise," a gag that has unexpected consequences
