Newly appointed Little League team manager Ernie fears it's the end of the Central Comets when Swimming Pool's mom gives her an ultimatum: go to charm school, or no more Little League. Swimming Pool, the tomboy -- in charm school? That's a stretch. And no matter how hard she tries, she can't seem to get the hang of acting like a "girlie-girl." To make matters worse, Ernie's dad is dating Cat Lady, and Ernie's teammates think it's a big joke. But just when it seems like all is lost, Ernie comes up with a plan -- he'll enlist Dusty and open his own charm school. Now if he can only figure out who left him the note that says, "I know who likes you."

Doug Cooney brings back the wonderfully original characters from The Beloved Dearly in this very funny look at kids in the process of growing up.
