“Two fifth grade best friends turn their investigative abilities toward finding the secret to popularity. But does success lie in imitating the popular girls? Heavily illustrated in notebook style, their running commentary will give readers something to chew on, and laugh about.”
-- Rosemary Pugliese, Quail Ridge Books, Raleigh, NC


Description

Lydia and Julie are best friends with one goal: to crack the code of popularity. Lydia’s the bold one: aspiring theater star, stick-fighting enthusiast, and human guinea pig. Julie’s the shy one: observer and artist, accidental field hockey jock, and faithful recorder. In this notebook they write down their observations and carry out experiments to try to determine what makes the popular girls tick. But somehow, the harder Lydia and Julie try to imitate the popular girls, the farther they get from their goal—and each other. Amy Ignatow understands friendship and the fifth grade, and she knows just how to wring humor out of ordinary and extraordinary moments.
