I foresee a lot of girls trying to learn how to draw and how to be funny. And if we can get more funny females in the world, girls who understand how great it is to even BE funny (and that can draw!), then we’ll owe The Popularity Papers more than we can ever give. A really great book and worth a close inspection. And if I absolutely have to compare it to Jeff Kinney’s series, I’ll do it this way: This is the funniest book I’ve read for kids since discovering Diary of a Wimpy Kid. Truth.

Best friends,Julie and Lydia are in 5th grade and are deteremined to be popular when they get to middelschool.They decide to watch the popular girls and record everything they do in a secret journal-- but when one girl is invited to join a popular clique, will their friendship survive?
Written in journal style, complete with different handwriting and lots of doodles, Ignatow remembers what it was like to be a tween. LOVED IT-- and so does every girl i hand it too.

I like this book because its about two best friends that want to become popular. So they watch the popular girls and record everything they do. They have a secret journal that they record in everyday. I just LOVED this book and i think that you would love it too if you read it.....also when i got this book i started reading it and i hated it when i had to stop... i hope its the same way for you too!!!!

This pseudo graphic novel is about two best friends, Lydia and Julie, and their quest to find out how popular girls become popular. Their plan is that when they discover this, they will then apply these lessons to their own lives to become popular.

Written as a research diary by the two girls, the story is told by their written conversations and Julie's pictures. Which is very sweet and true to life. My only quibble is that this is really more of an Intermediate book (Grade 6 to 8) than Grade 4/5. Author Ignatow should have aged up these two girls by a year or two. Still, the story is very sweet.

A nice follow-up for those who were fans of the Amelia series by Marissa Moss.

Lydia Goldblatt and Julie Graham-Chang are two smart cookies. Some girls going into their last year before middle school would confront the enigma of popularity by either moaning or changing themselves beyond all recognition. Lydia and Julie have a much better plan. First, they have this notebook where Julie (the artistic one) can record their observations. The mission? To stealthily watch all the popular girls they know so as to best determine how to someday be popular themselves. Lydia (the brave one) will subject herself to rigorous testing, whether it involves bleaching off a chunk of her hair or joining an eskrima class (otherwise known as stick fighting). Along the way they attempt to finagle cell phones out of their parental units (with unfortunate results), deal with a Norwegian crush, and have a falling out that may or may not put an end to their friendship. Being popular may be tough but attaining it? Hilarious.
