There's the expected squabbles over boys, the drama over who's made the guest list for Hamilton's party and the usual insecurities and angst. There's something else as well, a secret so devastating that the most popular girl in school knows she must keep it hidden at all costs. Hamilton has always been able to rely on the clique and her boyfriend Alex to keep her secret, but seeds of mutiny have been sown. Will they keep her secret safe? Should they?

Reading the description of this book to myself, I thought this would be another superifical book about high school popularity and how desperate girls were to be popular, etc. And, for the first half of the book, that's somewhat what it was. But, then it got interesting. The book introduces five main characters, each part of the school's most popular clique - Hamiliton, Olivia, Shelley, Nordica, and Zelda. Hamiliton is the queen bee of the group. Olivia is the honest and sarcastic one. Shelley is a wanna-be queen bee. Nordica is the shy one, and also the youngest of the group. Zelda likes to wear black and might be described as goth. Honestly, till a certain point in the book - the big twist around page 200 - the book seems to lack a focus. Okay, they're in high school. Okay, they're popular. Okay, they have parties. Throughout the first part of the book, everything was pretty slow because of this. I probably wouldn't have continued reading if I hadn't known about the mind-blowing twist before hand. The big twist is really what makes the book. And therefore, I'm not going to give it away. But just know, it is a really interesting and unexpected plot turn. I usually can predict things pretty easily in books. However, in this book I was completely stumped. Let's just say that my guess involved something with one of the main characters being some sort of fairy who likes to prey on teenage girls. (Don't worry, this isn't it!) One big con I noticed throughout the book was that the author sometimes used vocabulary that high schoolers just wouldn't use (I know, I am one). For instance, at one point I remember a character said the word ninny. I don't know about you, but not once have I heard that word used at my high school. Overall, this was a pretty good book, one I might recommend to my friends if they're looking for a quick and interesting read. 3.5/5 Stars.

At my school, there are Populars, Nerds, and Moderates. Moderates are in the middle, like I am. I think Nerds are nerdy, aka weird, and populars are awesome! I was asked to be a Popular, but I like Moderates. They arent nerdy, and they arent accused of being mean. Moderates rule! ~Emma

I will admit that I initially read Popular because I used to be in a writing group with the author. I'm an adult male - books about teenage girls are NOT my normal fare. But Popular surprised and greatly pleased me. In fact, after finishing the first time I went right back and re-read it. Without giving away too much, it's a fascinating, deep look into people under extreme stress and coping the best they can. It doesn't matter whether you're a tweener or a teen or a GenX'er like me, it's a great read with a terrific twist. I really cared about the characters, and cheered at the end.

I am definetly a nerd, and we despise you because you are perfect, and you point out all or idiosyncrasys, and you are jealous of our knowledge, and your lack thereof. You must point out our fashion flaws, and gossip the with your friends about what you saw us wearing. You are very exclusive, and talk to no one but your friends. Thats why.
