How to Be Popular
Do you want to be popular?
Everyone wants to be popularâ��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 muchâ��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 s...more
If you've ever heard the phrase "Way to pull a Steph Landry!," you wouldn't be alone. Pretty much everyone who attends Bloomville High in the heart of Greene County, Indiana, knows who Steph Landry is. Or, they at least know better than to ever, ever, ever do something that would have someone uttering the aforementioned phrase. Even kids under the age of five know what it means to "pull a Steph Landry." In that they know it means instant social doom.
So what di...more

This is how I felt during the majority of the book. It was just so bland and monotone that I did not laugh a single time during the whole time I read the book.
Not a single time.
This is important mainly because being a huge fan of Meg Cabot, I expected way more from her. But I honestly think this is one of her weaker books (but not as weak as Abandon, that was just horrid).
I really hated that main character, Steph. She was annoying and whiny and overall, a real self-centered brat. For whatever r...more
Do you want to be popular? But you don't know how to. Then, try reading this book.
Once there was a girl who wish to be popular, Steph Landry is her name. Steph, is not your average kind of girl. She's pretty, not! And she is cool, so not! But she's popular in some ways.

Then one day, while cleaning the attic of her best frien...more

Popular: adj. Widely liked or appreciated; liked by many acquantances; sought after for company.
We all want it. Why? Because being pouplar means being liked. Everyone wants to be liked.
Sadly, however, not all of us are.
So what do pouplar people have in common that makes them all so popular?
They all have:
*A friendly way about them.
*An eagerness to pitch in and help get the job done.
*An interest in everythign that goes on at work or school.
*A look that's fresh and neat.
About 2 months ago I finished the book How to be popular by Meg Cabot. Meg Cabot is one of my favorite authors, and has many books for young adults. Her books are mostly about a girls faced with problems or find out something and have to cope with it. She writes books from the point of view of girls that are already in their teens / high schoolers
The main character Stephanie / Steph Laundry had an incident with one of the popular girls Lauren Moffatt in the sixth gr...more
…and that cruel taunt has been burning Steph Landry’s ears since the time that she was a clumsy twelve-year old who accidentally upended a Red Super Big-Gulp on Lauren Moffat’s white denim D & G skirt. And although Steph bought Lauren a brand new skirt…prima-donna hag-extraordinaire Lauren has never let Steph or the rest of Bloomville High School ever let the unfortunate memory fade. Ergo, whenever anyone commits a faux-pas or does something remotely dorky, it’s...more
Anyway, I really enjoyed reading this book. Meg Cabot has a way of writing books that makes me feel that I am really reading at a teenager's point of view about li...more

I loved Kate’s reading style. She had the perfect voice for the book and was so fun to listen to. She really brought the book to life.
The story was fun, I think a lot of young girls could relate to wanting to be popular and fit into the mol...more

Especially the sugar packs and says "Merry Christmas, Mr. Potter! Merry Christmas you old Building and Loan! Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!"
Meg Cabot was born on February 1, 1967, during the Chinese astrological year of the Fire Horse, a notoriously unlucky sign. Fortunately she grew up in Bloomington, Indiana, where few people were aware of the stigma of being a fire horse -- at least until Meg became a teenager, when she flun...more

Shhh," I said. "It's snowing. But only on Lauren." I shook more sugar out of the packets. "'Merry Christmas, Mr. Potter,'" I called softly down to Lauren in my best Jimmy Stewart imitation. "'Merry Christmas, you old building and Loan.'"
Jason started cracking up, and I had to hush him as Becca saw my sugar supply running low and hastened to hand me more packets.
Stop laughing so loud," I said to Jason. "You'll spoil this beautiful moment for them." I sprinkled more sugar over the side of the balcony. "'Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night.”
