along the way I swear I ll only give 3 star ratings or lower if I keep reading contemporary novels WHY AM I DOING THIS TO MYSELF This book is not a clean romance, it isof a sweet romance My mom just recently bought this one as an Advance Reader Copy So I personally can t complain about mistakes in this one although there were a lot I think this story touches on how most girls in Middle and High

that list note to self one day publish said list on my blog However, as extraordinary as some of her books are, there are some that aren t so good.And now that I m older andcynical thanks to reading five thousand YA books well, probably less than that but it feels like that much and the market has grown,well, this book really sucks.I hate to say it, but it does.Have I really changed that much as a reader Probably yes and no My thoughts of the book originally were meh I wasn t that impressed, but upon reread I was just shocked at how bland and insipid it was And that this book came from the Meg Cabot.The story itself is simple but decent Simplicity can be a good thing though, some of my favorite contemporary romances are simple But at times, How to be Popular felt too cookie cutter Every single aspect of the plot was predictable and the Cabot tropes were all there.Nothing out there at all And I could ve totally gotten that if the characters felt a little bitrealistic.Realistic and likable.Because it took methan a little time to warm up to Steph.Dare I say, I don t like her.Yes, I m going to say it I do not like Steph Landry and I totally understand why people were making fun of her for all those years stupid Big Gulp aside.Do you really you think it s perfectly okay to play peeping Tom on your best friend and then crush on another guy while constantly slut slamming anyone who might look a little bit better than you Really Throughout reading this my head I kept thinking, is this really from the same woman who created Michael Moscovitz, Mia Thermopolis, Suze Simon, and Jesse de Silva.Well, the book cover says it is.But the book felt so phoned in, guys Steph and Jason there were some cute moments but as far as the panty melting scenes that you see in other Meg books.Not there.I almost felt like Jason was some prize given to Steph at the end for making good life choices.Dumb OMG I just really have to say that this book is completely amazing Meg Cabot sums up every girl s or maybeum, boys dreams of being popular and the real reality It is pretty hard to make normal school life sound interesting unless you re writing something paranormal, like angels, vampires or the like trust me, I ve seen almost all of the variations you can possibly get Crazytop courtesy of Jason, here aka Steph Landry is known for the saying, way to pull a Steph Landry, Tha OMG I just really have to say that this book is completely amazing Meg Cabot sums up every girl s or maybeum, boys dreams of being popular and the real reality It is pretty hard to make normal school life sound interesting unless you re writing something paranormal, like angels, vampires or the like trust me, I ve seen almost all of the variations you can possibly get Crazytop courtesy of Jason, here aka Steph Landry is known for the saying, way to pull a Steph Landry, That s Lauren s way of payback by the way, she s the most popular girl in school Steph spilled Super Big RedGulp it stains and when I say stains, I mean really stains all over her five years from the present, and to that day, Lauren still holds a grudge Just to make itcomplicated, Steph is almost obsessed with Mark Finley, Lauren s somewhat phony and clueless but nice boyfriend.Meg Cabot has really outdone herself this time I think that this was even better than the Princess Diaries wait, I know so And I think the rest of the nation agrees with me the Princess Diaries is a New York Times bestseller, but this book is National Steph, that s really a way to pull a Steph Landry I think this is a great book for every person to read, no matter what your age The story is focused on Stephanie Landry wanting to be part of the popular crowd mainly because she s in love with quarterback Mark Finley, the most popular student at Steph s school It doesn t take long for Steph, an ordinary girl, to take matters into her hands and with the help of a book on how to be popular which she got in a box of old books from her best friend Jason s grandmother, and some money she borrowed I think this is a great book for every person to read, no matter what your age The story is focused on Stephanie Landry wanting to be part of the popular crowd mainly because she s in love with quarterback Mark Finley, the most popular student at Steph s school It doesn t take long for Steph, an ordinary girl, to take matters into her hands and with the help of a book on how to be popular which she got in a box of old books from her best friend Jason s grandmother, and some money she borrowed from her grandfather, to gain enough self confidence to take on the popular crowd at school and become one of them.Although the story centers on how to become a popular person, the message isn t exactly that In Steph s quest to win Mark s attention and fit into his crowd, although she s hated by his girlfriend, Lauren, Steph learns a few valuable lessons Following the advice from The Book she learns that being popular is all about having self confidence, making people around you feel like they re the most important person to you, the value of a genuine smile, and the importance of true friends All the lessons she learns from The Book are ones we can apply in our daily lives, whether we want to be popular or not Actually, it has nothing to do with popularity, but simply being the best person you can be, for yourself and to others The most important lesson Stephanie learns at the end of the story is one The Book didn t teach her but which experience did that being popular isn t all it s cut out to be I enjoyed the characters and their background stories, and I liked that each of them came from such interesting, somewhat dysfunctional families Mean girl, Lauren, is rather stereotypical of mean girls portrayed in other YA books and movies, but the rest of the characters were all authentic with quirky, endearing traits There s really nothing new to this story than what I ve read before, but still I enjoyed it for the positive message it sends to young girls without being too in your face about it Lots of laughs throughout the book and an ending that leaves you smiling gets this book an easy five stars Liked this book Didn t love it, but did like it It s a cute young adult book about popularity and how to reach it The advice is actually pretty good, and the paths the heroine takes are entertaining.
