I think this would be great for kids that are getting a little better at reading. It has good morals (though I personally think one of the ones it claims to teach is a little bit of a stretch), and I love that Miss Popular is in a wheelchair. It looks kind of girly, though it would actually be good for both boys and girls. I could see it being the start of a very popular series.
Note: I received this book for free through Goodreads Giveaways.

I hate the main character. It feels strange that "miss popular" is a villain when we have so few disabled characters in children's fiction. Feels like jewel didn't write it.

I received this book from Goodreads First Reads in exchange for an honest review....

I quickly read through this book, to see how "appropriate" it was for my niece (her mom is very picky about what she reads). I found the book to be amusing, silly, and very cute. It is great for children who feel like an "outcast" or "lesser than" because of certain disabilities or disadvantages. It is a very uplifting and encouraging book that touches topics that, honestly and unfortunately, very few books will reach upon.

I gave this book to my niece and she said that she enjoyed the book as well, that it was easy enough for her to read, and she found it funny.

Thumbs up for this book!
