Choose your friends wisely, so the birdies say, but I think this should also be said of enemies. Which is very important to a girl who wants her 7th grade experience to be full of awesome! Unfortunately the cards are stacked against Margot right from the start - with her best friend transferring to a different school, no socially-acceptable clothes to impress her peers, and vegan TV dinners for the rest of her life!

Enter the cool new girl from New York who has an air of mystery and edgy. Definitely perfect friend to have when facing off with the popular girls and impressing the boy of her dreams! So what if Em seems too good to be true - and her "edgy" has a little more crazy than Margot prefers?

Mission (un)Popular is a pretty easy-going book with a narrator who endears herself within the first few pages. I don't know about you all, dear Readers, but I can relate to a girl who feels like she was born with two left feet and word vomit. I can picture Margot quite easily as she relates the woes of her life - and it reminds me of Georgia from Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging. Just socially awkward - but in my book, that makes you endearingly adorable!

While Margot is enjoyable, I was disappointed with some of the conflicts in the story. Not dramatic enough, not explained as much. For instance, I thought Margot replaces her childhood best friend Erika all too easily. Sure, I can see why, but I would have expected them to fight to keep their friendship a few more times before they called it quits. Instead, they let the door slam shut and moved on. Or Em's character - Margot puts together bits and pieces, but the resolution left me wanting a little bit more details.

If you are looking for a book with a good heart, Mission (un)Popular would be an excellent choice that will deliver a positive message on friendship with a good chuckle or two along the way!
