Popular: Vintage Wisdom for a Modern Geek by Maya Van Wagenen

Popular by Maya Van Wagenen
Such a great book! I cannot believe that an 8th grade girl wrote this! In this memoir, Maya goes through her 8th grade year trying out the tips she found in an old book that was written in the 1950s - "Betty Cornell's Teenage Popularity Guide". Maya changed her diet, her wardrobe and even got the courage to go outside of her comfort zone and talk to everyone in all the different social groups in school. She tells her story openly and honestly with a lot of humor and wisdom. I loved this book and I think middle and high school kids will enjoy it as well.
