The title of How the Pops Stole Christmas is a lie because the Pops (short for popular) didn’t steal Christmas. They didn’t even ruin anybody’s Christmas. They — and really it wasn’t all of the Pops, just a couple of them — put a damper on Jenny’s Christmas, but Jenny could have easily solved the problem by straight out talking to Mark. But Jenny’s only in sixth grade so I’ll give her a slight pass.

I loved reading about all the fun things Jenny and her friends did over their winter break. They c

The book "How the Pops Stole Christmas" by Nancy Krulik tells the story about a normal girl in middle school named Jenny and how the pops(populars) try to ruin her Christmas spirit. Overall, I thought the book was very entertaining and all middle school girls should read it. The problems the characters encountered were when Jenny got Dana (former friend and a popular girl) as a "secret snowflake. Knowing they despise each other this would be hard for Jenny. I could definitely relate to the ...more

I think that this book is so modern. It explains all the things that happen to middle schoolers. Jenny, I think, needs to be a little more bold in her personality and stand up for herself a little more because her friends won't always be there for her to defend her. I like the series, but Jenny needs to be a little more bold and stick up for herself once in a while.

In this book, everything is going wrong! One friend moves back to England, a horribly rude cousin comes, and twins can just drive her nuts! Join the main character, (read to find out!) in a journey to save her freinds and her fun summer!

Finally, they realize something that all kids should know. I am not going to spoil it, but these were really cute, but morally good books that all kids should read.
