Synopsis

Fifth grader Chelsea is more at home chasing frogs than boys. When she's forced to invite a boy to a friend's birthday party, Chelsea feels as out of place as . . . a zebra in a herd of ponies. Her search for a date brings unexpected--and hilarious--results that give a whole new meaning to the phrase, "Be yourself."
