Description


Being a superhero isn’t easy. But surviving a middle school dance? That’s when things get really hard…

Amanda Price never dreamed she’d turn into Bug Girl, a hero with the powers of the insect kingdom. She also never dreamed it would be this difficult.

Turns out superpowers aren’t much help with Geri, the new bully terrorizing the seventh grade. Or with Emily. She’s supposed to be Amanda’s partner in crime-fighting, but she’s too busy freaking out about the upcoming dance.

When a mystery monster appears in town and seventh graders start disappearing, Bug Girl needs Emily's help more than ever. Soon both girls are tangled in a dastardly scheme—and the fate of their school, their town, and their very lives will be decided on the dance floor.

Bug Girl: Fury on the Dance Floor is Benjamin Harper's and Sarah Hines Stephen’s buzz-worthy, hilarious superhero sequel to the original middle grade novel Bug Girl—and it’s packed with illustrations and real bug facts.

About the Author


Benjamin Harper was born and raised in St. Petersburg, Florida where he spent his time obsessing over insects, dinosaurs, space travel, and kaiju attacks. He went to Warren Wilson College in the beautiful mountains of North Carolina and then moved to New York where he started working in children’s publishing. He’s been involved in children’s books ever since, as both an editor and author. Currently, he lives in Los Angeles, California where he works on super hero stories and lives with his cat Edith Bouvier Beale, III.

Benjamin is the author of the Bug Girl series and Obsessed with Star Wars.



Sarah Hines Stephens has been a children’s book reader, editor, seller, buyer, doctor, author, copyeditor, ghostwriter, and speaker for many years—and she is still most of those things. She makes her home in Oakland, California where she lives with her husband, two kids, and two dogs. When she is not doing book related things, Sarah enjoys cooking and eating and gardening and traveling. And she’s pretty good at them. Sarah is not a good dancer, but she does that anyway.

Sarah is the coauthor of the Bug Girl series, including Bug Girl: Fury on the Dance Floor.

PRAISE FOR BUG GIRL:

“The villain is dastardly, the heroes are staunch, and the costumes are impressive, making this high-quality standard superhero fare with the added bonus of some poignant details of how even the closest friendships may fade amid the social pressures of middle school.” — Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

“Tucks both middle-school fashion advice and insect facts into a tale that scuttles along to a wildly destructive climactic battle.” — Booklist
