How NOT to be Popular
One could argue that it's a tad formulaic but I don't know if that's a bad thing at all for this sort of story. What this story requires, and has in spades, in a unique voice and point of view. At it's heart it really tackles the core issues that haunt teenagers no matter what era they are in. As someone whose getting closer to being the parent of teenage people rather than a teenager himself (holy shit that's scary) I think this book is relatable across the board.
It's light and fun - if you dug films like Mean Girls or Easy A then this is probably right up your alley.
