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.

Benjamin Harper and Sarah Hines Stephens; illustrated by Anoosha Syed

Sarah Hines Stephens grew up in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada, where she liked to build habitats for woolly bear caterpillars and roller-skate in the carport. She has been a bookseller, an editor, a ghostwriter, an author, a garden instructor, and a lab assistant—and still holds many of those jobs. She makes her home in Oakland, California, where she lives with three humans, two dogs, and an ever-changing cast of house spiders.

Benjamin Harper is originally from St. Petersburg, Florida, where hot summers fostered his love of bugs. He has been involved in children’s books, as both an editor and an author, for almost as long as he can remember. Currently, he resides in Los Angeles, California, where he raises monarch butterflies and lives with a cat, a dog, and a hippie.
