The Popularity Papers 
by Amy Ignatow is a clever, cute, sweet book.
It's a colorful graphic novel, perfect for those heading off to middle school.

In trying to "crack the code to popularity", two best friends learn that when we make mistakes, we learn valuable lessons. Most importantly, it's better to do the things you love - with people you like - than it is to be popular.

*Amy Ignatow has just finished the fourth book in this series. Here is why I think she is so cool: Amy has been an illustrator, a teacher, a farmer, a florist, a short-order vegan cook, a dancing chicken, a wedding singer, a reporter, and a ghost-writer for personal ads. Phew... She lives with her husband Mark and their cat, Mathilda, whom they believe to be well-meaning despite all evidence to the contrary. (if you haven't guessed, she and I have held many of the same jobs and both have an awful cat)
