The Popularity Papers: Research for the Social Improvement and General Betterment of Lydia Goldblatt and Julie Graham-Chang by Amy Ignatow
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
This was pretty standard fare: two girls want to be popular, so they try different things until they discover that they just need to be themselves. Of course they also learn that the people they think are so very cool/popular have their own issues, and they have a Big Misunderstanding. What will set this apart for most students is that it's written as a notebook, with handwritten text and drawings, rather than typeset.
I also think that the age range (8-13) is ambitious. 8-10, yes, but older? No.
