Gr 5-8- Dorie, 12, was a loner in California. Now she has moved to New Jersey, and she yearns to be popular in her new school. She is an intelligent, science-loving student who makes use of the scientific method to achieve her goal. She analyzes the popular group and studies its members to determine the common variable they share. Along the way she meets Dixie, who is not popular but doesn't care. He and Dorie become fast friends, but she is still determined to be part of the group she has nicknamed the Holly Trinity. She eventually figures out that the commonality among the girls is that they have all been dumped by Grant and sets out to follow suit, but discovers that being part of the in group is not all she thought it would be. The author cleverly uses scientific principles in a humorous fashion to make this book appeal even to students for whom science is their least favorite subject. A lighthearted romance that even reluctant readers will enjoy.-Sheilah Kosco, Bastrop Public Library, TXCopyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
