Book Review #80
How To Be Popular by Meg Cabot
Rating: one star (out of four)

Stephanie Landry wants to be popular.  Ever since that incident in 5th grade she has been shunned by the popular kids, but now she has a weapon, a book that will teach her how to be popular, it's called, How To Be Popular.

I was really not impressed with this book.  The characters seemed flat and boring (or predictable) and I just couldn't make myself care about their situations or problems.  I also thought that the story line for this book needed some help.  The tips in the book were pretty good actually, but the way that they were applied and used just didn't match up somehow.  I also didn't like a couple scenes where Stephanie and her friends went "out of character" and by this I mean, that they did something that I wouldn't have thought that their character would do, and this was a little annoying.  The end was predictable and didn't make the book any better. Overall I'd say that you could definitely skip this book.
