Class of 2014: YA Superlative Blogfest - Day 4

Dec 18, 2014

Is it really that time of the year? No, not the time filled with red and green and presents and the perfume of pine. I mean the time filled with fireworks and a late night party around the world and a marathon of The Walking Dead that I will totally be watching, even though I own all four seasons on DVD. IT IS THE END OF THE FREAKING YEAR. Most importantly, it's the time of year to rank all the books we spent most of the year reading.

A touchingly honest, candidly hysterical memoir from breakout teen author Maya Van Wagenen. 

"Stuck at the bottom of the social ladder at pretty much the lowest level of people at school who aren’t paid to be here,” Maya Van Wagenen decided to begin a unique social experiment: spend the school year following a 1950s popularity guide, written by former teen model Betty Cornell. Can curlers, girdles, Vaseline, and a strand of pearls help Maya on her quest to be popular? 

The real-life results are painful, funny, and include a wonderful and unexpected surprise—meeting and befriending Betty Cornell herself. Told with humor and grace, Maya’s journey offers readers of all ages a thoroughly contemporary example of kindness and self-confidence.
