Alli longs to be popular, but fate just keeps conspiring to make her totally uncool. Who else would be humiliated by a piece of her mom's underwear stuck to her butt by static cling?

But nothing is as she expected, and there's ugliness lurking behind even the prettiest face.
Alli bares it all to her journal as she figures out where she fits in, and, most important of all, what it means to be a real friend.
