The Popularity Papers: Research for the Social Improvement and General Betterment of Lydia Goldblatt & Julie Graham-Chang - Amy Ignatow It's amazing how this book can be so similar to "Dork Diaries" in its premise, yet be so different (and so much better). When Lydia and Julie systematically try to figure out how to become popular, they make funny observations and stay true to themselves (mostly). I loved how they learn in the process about some new activities they like, become friends with more kids, start to value each other more, and evaluate what popularity really means/is. The evolution of this process was so realistic that I think kids will have lots to think about without getting hit over the head with the message.
