Do you want to be popular?
Everyone wants to be popular—or at least, Stephanie Landry does. Steph's been the least popular girl in her class since a certain cherry Super Big Gulp catastrophe five years earlier.
Does being popular matter?
It matters very much—to Steph. That's why this year, she has a plan to get in with the It Crowd in no time flat. She's got a secret weapon: an old book called—what else?—How to Be Popular.
What does it take to be popular?
All Steph has to do is follow the instructions in The Book, and soon she'll be partying with the It Crowd (including school quarterback Mark Finley) instead of sitting on The Hill Saturday nights, stargazing with her nerdy best pal Becca, and even nerdier Jason (now kind of hot, but still), whose passion for astronomy Steph once shared.
Who needs red dwarves when you're invited to the hottest parties in town?
But don't forget the most important thing about popularity!
It's easy to become popular. What isn't so easy? Staying that way.

Meg Cabot was born in Bloomington, Indiana. In addition to writing adult contemporary fiction, she is the author of the bestselling young adult fiction series The Princess Diaries. She lives in Key West, Florida, with her husband.From Booklist:
Preparing for eleventh grade, Steph studies an old book entitled How to Be Popular and plots her path into the A-Crowd. Steph's name has been synonymous with klutz since sixth grade, when she spilled a red Super Big Gulp on a popular girl's white skirt. But when she puts her mind to it, she surprises herself as well as her longtime best friends, Jason and Becca. Soon, though, Steph discovers that the love of her life is not sitting at the popular kids' table in the school cafeteria. Some readers will carefully study the pages of tips from Steph's guidebook that appear at the beginning of each chapter. But others will find themselves skipping the advice on social graces in order to get on with Cabot's appealing, first-person story of teen yearning, befuddlement, and love. Despite the scenes when Steph spies on next-door neighbor Jason in his bedroom at night, there's an appealing innocence about the story, which depicts the main characters within their extended families as well as with their peers.
