How to Be Popular, Review

11 May

How to Be Popular by Meg Cabot

Plot: Steph Landry is not popular, but all of that will change this school year. Steph found a copy of an old book entitled How to Be Popular, and plans on following it to the letter this year. As Steph sets her sights on the in-crowd, she ends up nearly losing the friends she has had all along. Steph soon needs to decide between maintaining her popularity or doing what is right, and when she makes the right choice, everything changes. Steph learns that being popular may not be exactly what she envisioned, and when she finally learns to not focus on popularity, she is surprised with the results. This is a feel-good, happy high school story. Who hasn’t wanted to be popular?  Steph’s guidebook for popularity is very old-fashioned, and will make readers laugh at the advice given (and that Steph takes it all to heart); however, in the end, most of the advice given is genuine and all traits of true friends. By the end of the story, Steph learns that being popular isn’t the most important thing, and gains a true appreciation for her family and friends. One of the nicest parts of this book is that the lessons learned by Steph are also learned by other characters in the story, making for a happy ending for all.

Would you recommend this book? Yes.

4 stars
