one of the best books i read in 2009,
This review is from: How Not to Be Popular (Hardcover)
oh, man. what a great, refreshing read! after seeing other teen crap on the market about popularity (*ahem* the clique, etc. etc.(you know what i mean)) and other senseless topics, this book really was a breath of fresh air. the main character, maggie dempsey has never stayed in one place for long. she's moved from place to place with her hippie parents her whole life. when they move again, maggie decides this is the last time she'll make friends, only to drift away after she eventually moves yet again. i don't want to give away the plot, but her scheme doesn't go exactly as planned, and hilarity ensues. readers will laugh along the way and fall in love with maggie as she survives twists and turns. i definitely recommend "how NOT to be popular"!
p.s. this isn't the type of book i usually read (sci-fi, action/adventure, historical fic...) but i still loved it! give it a shot :)
