" A touchingly honest, candidly hysterical memoir from breakout teen author Maya Van Wagenen Stuck at the bottom of the social ladder at "pretty much the lowest level of people at school who aren't paid to be here," Maya Van Wagenen decided to begin a unique social experiment: spend the school year following a 1950s popularity guide, written by former teen model Betty Cornell. Can curlers, girdles, Vaseline, and a strand of pearls help Maya on her quest to be popular? The real-life results are painful, funny, and include a wonderful and unexpected surprise-meeting and befriending Betty Cornell herself. Told with humor and grace, Maya's journey offers readers of all ages a thoroughly contemporary example of kindness and self-confidence. "--… (mere)

teen/adult memoir/middle school survival. 8th grader Maya carries out the steps in a 1950s guide to teenage popularity (including the part about wearing girdles and shining shoes), working her way up to doing the unthinkable: sitting at all of the various table cliques in the lunchroom, including the jocks, the uber popular crowd, and the gangsters. Inspirational to anyone needing help fitting in/making friends (basically everyone) as well as to aspiring young writers.

This book is also extremely well written and edited, so it's all-around terrific. ( )

Initially I really liked the author's voice and thought she was funny and charming. And although it has a somewhat positive message at the end of the story, it spends so, so, so, so, SO much time reinforcing the idea that a girl's value is in her appearance that it just bummed me out. Granted, this was a memoir by a teenage girl. Almost more of a journal or diary. Real life rarely has movie-quality moments of clarity or a happy ending but it still just didn't seem to share anything new. ( )

I really enjoyed this book! I knew it was a memoir before I even started reading, but it was very well written, especially for a girl who was only in 8th grade! I realize she probably did a fair amount of polishing before it got published, but I still enjoyed it!

I think Maya's struggle with trying to fit in hits close to home for many teenage girls and boys as well. I like her unique approach in following the advice of an old how-to book that she had found and in the process, learned a lot about herself and others. In the end, I think we're all trying to fit in somehow.

Maya has a good writing style and I do hope we get to hear more from her in the future! ( )
