I Know Who Likes You
Doug Cooney. Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers, $15.95 (208pp) ISBN 978-0-689-85419-4
Doug Cooney's grade-school grifters are back in I Know Who Likes You, a follow-up to The Beloved Dearly. When Swimming Pool gets kicked out of Miss Ginger's School of Tap & Tumbling, Ernie and Dusty start their own finishing school so Swimming Pool's mother won't make her quit the baseball team (""I have to be a nice, sweet girlie-girl for my mom,"" says Swimming Pool). Readers will likely relate to the minor crises, shifting alliances and sneaky ploys that pepper the book.
