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
I found How To Be Popular a light, funny chick-lit.
It really wasn’t something people would remember forever. I personally think Teen Idol was slightly better, but my memory’s fuzzy and I can’t quite piece the plot together right now. Both stories were similar, I guess, in the aspect they’re both about girls going through high-school.
This one is no exception from Teen Idol. It has similar characters: a misunderstood main character, a swoon-worthy love-interest, the best guy-friend, the weird girl...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. Not popular because she's pretty, wears branded clothes or smart. Rather, she is popular because of the saying, "Way to pull a Steph Landry". Then one day, while cleaning the attic of her best frien...more

Let's just all take a minute to thank Meg Cabot for writing this lovely novel. This is definitely a favorite of mine. I loved every minute of reading it and I laughed and was shocked a lot, which is always a good thing of course.
The novel is about sixteen-year-old Steph wants to be popular. After an accident (involving the Cherry Super Big Gulp) she's been made fun of ever since. "Don't pull a Steph Landry!" and "Way to pull a Steph!" has been the wo...more
well, lagi kehabisan stok buku sendiri dan mulai ngacak-ngacak perpustakaan sekolah. Dan mau bagaimanapun juga, Meg Cabot selalu asik dalam semua karangannya. So it's worth to try, hehe.
Yang pertama terlintas di pikiran: satir banget!
Judul buku amat, sangat menipu. Orang bisa dengan mudahnya ngira ini sejenis buku motivasi ecek-ecek, dan yang baca (termasuk gue) pun bisa waswas, takut dikira shallow XD Maksudnya begini, kepopuleran adalah semacam hal paling klise sebenernya di...more

Well, sebenarnya formula yang dipakai Meg Cabot dalam buku-buku remajanya cukup umum, bahkan mungkin sudah basi. How To Be Popular mengingatkan saya pada buku All-American Girl dan film Princess Diaries (iya, saya belum membaca seri Princess Diaries satu pun), yaitu tentang gadis-yang-tadinya-nggak-popuper-kemudian-mendadak-j...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
"Way to pull a Steph Landry."
This book is a classic tale of a girl trying to be popular, succeeding, losing it, realizing she'd rather be herself. Frankly it is quite well developed but very predictable, considering she likes the popular guy, he turns out to be a jerk, she goes on to date her best friend. So predictable but I have to say I didn't want to put this book down. I didnt want it to end. The popular girl never gave up trying to annoy Steph. But I love the tail end. T...more
character growth/personality: 5/5

She wanted to be popular, and learned how to becuase of a book called (wait for it): How to Be Popular.

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.”
"Oh my God, did you see her face?" Becca asked between guffaws. "'There's something in my hair!'"
"That was fantastic, Crazytop," Jason said, wiping tears of laughter from his eyes. "Best master plan yet.”
