Preparing for eleventh grade, Steph studies an old book entitled How to Be Popular and plots her path into the A-Crowd. Steph's name has been synonymous with klutz since sixth grade, when she spilled a red Super Big Gulp on a popular girl's white skirt. But when she puts her mind to it, she surprises herself as well as her longtime best friends, Jason and Becca. Soon, though, Steph discovers that the love of her life is not sitting at the popular kids' table in the school cafeteria. Some readers will carefully study the pages of tips from Steph's guidebook that appear at the beginning of each chapter. But others will find themselves skipping the advice on social graces in order to get on with Cabot's appealing, first-person story of teen yearning, befuddlement, and love. Despite the scenes when Steph spies on next-door neighbor Jason in his bedroom at night, there's an appealing innocence about the story, which depicts the main characters within their extended families as well as with their peers.

How to be Popular is yet another one of Cabot's many novels that capture the angst, vibrancy, and drama of teenage life perfectly. Though it may seem like Steph's instant popularity is a bit of a fluke, this is a novel that caters to both sides, as Steph realizes that popularity with the "In Crowd" may be fun, but is not the greener side of the pasture, and that being well liked among her own group of friends and people she actually likes is way more important. Besides the story being lively and entertaining, the advice that Steph follows is helpful and on the ball, and will appeal to the readers as much as the story does, creating yet another fun and instantly likable novel for the scads of Cabot fans.
It's a book about a girl using a book to be popular,but it doesn't get her the expected reaction;instead,she gets used.
But,in the end,the 'popular people' end up being the main character's friends,and it made me feel really warm inside.
Anyone should read this,it's a great book.
