Product description

THE breakout teen author of the year: a six-figure deal and a DreamWorks movie optioned. The real-life diary of Maya, aged fifteen, who decides to follow a 1950s guide to popularity. Curlers, girdles, Vaseline, a strand of pearls: does it work? Goodness gracious: it certainly seems to! Maya is at a Texan school, stuck in the armpit of life, when she hits on her big experiment. She’ll spend a year following a 1950s popularity guide written by former teen model Betty Cornell. No selfies, Facebook or miracle creams. Just vintage clothes and old-fashioned values. The real-life results will make you cringe, laugh, cry and root for Maya on every page. You might even transform your wardrobe…

  • A hilarious true-life story by a talented fifteen year old
  • Can a 21st century dork find answers in a 1950s self-help guide?
  • Original and heartwarming tale full of unexpected discoveries
  • Explores high school anxiety and what it means to be popular

“The real deal… A teenage John Green for the next generation.” Margaret Stohl

Popular is wonderful… charming, touching, entertaining.” Jo Elvin, Glamour
