(A book in the Zibby Payne series)
A novel by

 
(ages 8 - 10) Is high society ready for Total Tomboy Zibby, or will there be a Decorum Disaster?

In the fifth installment of the "Zibby Payne" series, we find Zibby's classmates showing off some bad behavior during a field trip. The teachers decide the unruly group needs some manners help fast! Amber, Zibby's sometimes friend (but more often rival), volunteers to lead etiquette lessons to whip the sixth graders into shape. But Amber quickly gets carried away with the minutiae of manners, and forces the girls to learn things such as how to use a fish fork and curtsy she's turning them all into mindless princesses! Zibby finds creative ways to ditch the classes and even forms the "Total Slobs But Loving It" group. It's not that she is a fan of bad manners it's just that she knows Amber's Etiquette Uprising is based on appearances and material things.

Amber's celebrity magazines inspire her to throw a gala ball complete with fancy gowns, a red carpet, and enough pomp to rival the Academy Awards! As more girls get on board, Zibby decides to fight back. Of course, in true Zibby style, she goes way over the top in trying to convince her friends to attend the "Come as You Are" anti-gala. In the middle of the red carpet face-off, she learns what good manners are really all about.
