Twelve-year old Dennis’s parents have recently split up.  He mourns his mom's leaving and lightens up by playing soccer and exploring a new interest, a love of women’s fashion.  His dad forbids his reading Vogue magazine, but new friend Lisa pushes him to play dress-up and he ends up at school as “Denise” in high heels, makeup and a sequin dress.  This book clearly makes the point that cross-dressing is no big deal, but this story is about a boy in a dress, not a transgender character.--from the publisher
