One Girl’s Bold Journey to Learn What Being Popular is All About Paperback
Stuck near the bottom of the social ladder at “pretty much the lowest level of people at school who aren’t paid to be here,” Maya has never been popular. But before starting eighth grade, she decided to begin a unique social experiment: spend the school year following a 1950’s popularity guide, written by former teen model Betty Cornell. The real-life results are hilarious, painful, and filled with unexpected surprises–but through it all, Maya’s positive approach helps her to reveal a new understanding of self-confidence, kindness, and acceptance.
