Luz is forced to enter the science fair regional competition, which occurs on the same day as Homecoming. As a freshman, she's desperate to attend the dance. She thinks of an unscientific project so there's no way her teacher will approve it and she won't have to attend regionals. But the plan backfires when her teacher likes her strange approach to science.

Now, Luz must take three people, change their appearance (clothes or self-tanning jelly beans), and social qualities (Luz perfume made to smell like brownies or Gabber Gum, which is good for making shy people talk). If these are changed to the right amount, then her subjects will become popular.

What Luz is not prepared for is the social ramifications of her experiment. Can Luz get her life back, or has science taken over?

GAMMA GLAMMA mixes science and popularity and creates a nightmarish outcome. The science behind the scenes is so inventive that it makes for a remarkable read.
