Casey, pledge trainer for Zeta Beta Zeta, agrees to do a favor for her brother, Rusty. She’ll accompany Dale, Rusty’s roommate, to a totally boring Honors Engineering Awards for students and alumni even though she’s not Dale’s biggest fan. Then food poisoning strikes at the alumni welcome function. The dinner is rescheduled for the next night, which is also the night of the All-Greek formal. It’s the biggest Greek event of the year, and Casey has already asked the hot and somewhat mysterious transfer student, Rob, to accompany her. Casey’s solution is to attend both events, which leads to some unexpected romance results. Characters come and go quickly and get very little, if any, development. Often, it’s hard to remember who is on what date or in which fraternity, a difficulty compounded by the fact that the point of view shifts from one character to another but never stays in one place very long. The premise is mild fun, but because it centers around previously established characters, the appeal is mostly limited to those who already enjoy the TV series. (Fiction. YA)
