Do you want to be popular? Everyone wants to be popular-or at least, Stephanie Landry does. Steph's been the least popular girl in her class since a certain cherry Super Big Gulp catastrophe five years earlier. Does being popular matter? It matters very much-to Steph. 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 (now kind of hot, but still), whose passion for astronomy Steph once shared. Who needs red dwarves when you're invited to the hottest parties in town? But don't forget the most important thing about popularity! It's easy to become popular. What isn't so easy? Staying that way.

This book was good, but I didn't think it was great. It was funny, sure, like all Meg Cabot books, but I thought it was a bit cliche. I felt like I'd seen the whole "bottom of the social hierarchy" thing before in her other books, and I found the ending a little cliche, as well. Still, if you're looking for a funny beach read, I would recommend this. If you're looking for a really, really good book, I wouldn't really recommend this.

@alexandra111 is right. This is Meg Cabot we're talking about.

Common themes: childhood friend turned boyfriend, sudden change in clothes/popularity, finding out the 'in crowd' isn't as cool as you thought

it's an amusing book to read for summer :D

I loved this book. I had read it along time ago and I was just skimming through the website and added this book to my shelf! It was an amazing read, a little bit of everything; romantic and really funny ! I especially loved the ending one of my all time favorites my Meg Cabot.

book review #2:How to be popular; by Meg Cabot

this is the story of Steph Landry who has always been at the bottom (socially) since she spilled a cherry super big gulp (like a slushie)on the most popular girl in school in sixth grade.She is now in eleventh grade and still not living it down.With new found confidence and a special book Steph can gain popularitie quickly, but can she hold it?it was good but just entertaining if you like action this is not the book for you.A lot of plain kissing scene after scene.But none the less a great read:)

It was a typically cliched story about the whole lesson-about-popularity thing. But I found it cute. Mostly because of Jason of course :) But still, it was an enjoyable read.

Steph wishes to be popular, because since the 6th grade she has been made fun of. To do so she uses a book called 'How to Be Popular'. But after a while, she realizes that maybe popularity isn't all it's made out to be.
