Overview

THE ART OF THE CLIMB

Meet the Social Climber. Charming to the masses, fully intriguing, she is nothing if not unique and confident. Call her a rising star, a fashion-forward thinker, just don't mistake her for the (let's admit it) arrogant and awful It Girl. The SC is far superior. She is the girl everyone knows — and actually admires. The girl you want to be.

But social climbing isn't easy. It starts with a serious reality check and an ...

Overview

THE ART OF THE CLIMB

Meet the Social Climber. Charming to the masses, fully intriguing, she is nothing if not unique and confident. Call her a rising star, a fashion-forward thinker, just don't mistake her for the (let's admit it) arrogant and awful It Girl. The SC is far superior. She is the girl everyone knows — and actually admires. The girl you want to be.

But social climbing isn't easy. It starts with a serious reality check and an unlevel, highly competitive playing field: high school. You need skills to reach the peak of the high school A-list now, and making varsity cheer isn't even a start.

So step behind the velvet rope with this powerful and hilarious field guide. Unlock the secrets of popularity and personality.

Go on, embrace the Climb.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 7-10
This book has elements of Lauren Weisberger's The Devil Wears Prada (Doubleday, 2003) and Linda Francis Lee's The Devil in the Junior League (St. Martin's, 2006), but is geared to teens. There is mention of every popular, up-to-date brand name, movie, and store. There is advice on how to identify each clique in high school by fashion alone. The author gives dating advice, fashion advice, and advice on how to handle oneself in public. All of this "advice" is there to support the social climbers' quest to the A-List. Many of Schneider's comments are definitely New York specific, but she does succeed in creating an environment that is recognizable on almost any high school campus. Done in interesting and eye-catching fonts, the book will attract readers, but unless they're really interested in becoming A-Listers, it all becomes a bit much. Schneider does talk about the importance of fashion reflecting who you are-she encourages readers to figure that out independently and not be followers. Though parts of the book are entertaining, it's unlikely that it will be read cover to cover.

    A Snooze Fest

    If you enjoy being bored, then read this. If not, then you'd be better off reading something else. Anything else. The author's tone is over-the-top and quite frankly, obnoxious. I don't think this is a book, but rather pages put together in order to validate the author's self-esteem. If this is supposed to be satirical or funny, then it's not succeeding in its purpose.

    I got it for $1 at my local library's book fundraiser and I LOVE IT!
    It's written in a funny, truthful manner and has lots of tips and ideas for anyone to survive the wild world of high school!

    Reviewed by Jessica Cave for TeensReadToo.com

    Robyn Schneider's THE SOCIAL CLIMBER'S GUIDE TO HIGH SCHOOL is a fabulous guide to the average high school experience. <BR/><BR/>Truth be told, I expected a vain, stuck-up instruction manual teaching the next generation of high school students to be vain, snobbish girls a' la Mean Girls. I stand corrected. It does have its moments of being slightly snooty, but having recently finished high school myself, I found that it was right on the money. <BR/><BR/>Ms. Schneider gives you hints and tips for a successful high school experience. She covers everything from how to buy fourteen pairs of shoes in a single day (while only spending $240!) to dealing with gossip, classifying cliques, and being smart without being a know-it-all. <BR/><BR/>I learned the rules to dating (including the rules for who picks up the bill!) and learned how to fake a boyfriend. Other lessons learned include how to spot a fake Louis Vuitton, how NOT to fake-and-bake, what to buy at a thrift store vs. a boutique, and how to D.I.Y. my room to make it socially acceptable. <BR/><BR/>I thoroughly enjoyed this guide. It's quite accurate and will be a great companion for any girl entering high school.

    hilarious & charming

    Robyn Schneider's observations of the high school social scene are so accurate and witty, you won't be able to put this book down. Seriously. Just read the first page of the introduction and you'll see what I mean right away. I dare you not to laugh.
