Publisher's Summary

Do you want to be popular?
Stephanie Landry does. That's why this year, she has a plan to get in with the It Crowd in no time flat. She's got a secret weapon: an old book called (what else?) How to Be Popular.

What does it take to be popular?
All Steph has to do is follow the instructions in The Book, and soon she'll be partying with the It Crowd (including school quarterback Mark Finley) instead of sitting on The Hill Saturday nights, stargazing with her nerdy best pal Becca, and even nerdier Jason.

But don't forget the most important rule of popularity!
It's easy to become popular. What's not so easy? Staying that way.

    "Quick, fun read"
    Where does How to Be Popular rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Overall, I enjoyed this book. I am rating it 4 starts as compared to other books of its type. It is a fun quick read.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like these light, fun books by Meg Cabot. They end more happy than is really believable, but I love a positive ending, even if I have to overlook a few plot holes.

    "How to Be Popular" is about a young teenager who decides she wants to integrate herself into the popular crowd in school. Her inspiration is a book she finds entitled "How to Be Popular." Her intelligence and resourcefulness allows her to accomplish this feat; however, she runs into situations that force her to chose between remaining popular and staying true to her own sense of right and wrong.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    One thing I like about Meg Cabot is her ability to create characters. Her secondary characters are often superficial and stereotypical, but her main characters are always likable and well fleshed out (although they often are similar to the protagonists in her other books). Ergo, I really liked the main characters in this book. However, the female protagonist, Steph, did a few things I found a little distasteful. She actually spent many an evening watching her male friend dress and undress via some binoculars. I found myself a little uncomfortable with this voyeuristic behavior. I also felt that there were some actions on the part of minor characters that were not well explained.

    "Finding out how to be popular"

    This book is about a girl who craves to be popular because she is a social reject. One day she discovers an old book from her soon-to-be-step-grandma on how to be popular and takes it as her her ticket to popularity. She finds out that being popular is not so important in the end, but that having true friends is.
