Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Lydia Goldblatt and Julie Graham-Chang are best friends with one goal: to crack the code of popularity. Lydias the bold one: aspiring theater star, stick-fighting enthusiast, human guinea pig. Julies the shy one: observer and artist, accidental field hockey star, faithful recorder. In this notebook they write down their observations and carry out experiments to try to determine what makes the popular girls tick. But somehow, when Lydia and Julie try to imitate the popular girls, their efforts dont translate into instant popularity. Lydia ends up with a bald spot, their parents wont stop yelling, and Julie finds herself the number-one crush of Roland Asbjørnsen. Worse, they seem to be drifting farther and farther from their goal—and each other.

Amy Ignatows hilarious debut novel introduces the intrepid fifth-graders Julie and Lydia, whose quest to understand popularity may not succeed in the ways they want, but will succeed in keeping readers in stitches.

Synopsis:

Fresh off their epic summer road trip, Lydia and Julie are back and ready to take seventh grade by storm. Well, Lydia is: she wants to start a band, and sheandrsquo;s convinced Julie to join her. The Macram. Owls are joined by Roland (expert at the hardingfele) and Jane (expert at drama). None of them, unfortunately, are experts at rocking out. The band needs more practice, but instead Lydia and Julie find themselves riding an unexpected wave of popularity thanks to their own belated birthday party. The girls may have accidentally stumbled upon the secret to popularityandmdash;if only the secret werenandrsquo;t so completely humiliating. Hilarious, observant, and honest, this installment of the series has all of Amy Ignatowandrsquo;s signature charm, while bringing our beloved heroines to a new turning point in their lives.

Synopsis:

Itand#8217;s summertime, and Lydia and Julie are going on a road trip! After all the ups and downs of their first year in junior high, theyand#8217;re looking forward to seeing the sights and getting some new perspective on their quest for popularity. Papa Dad and Daddy will provide the transportation, and Lydia and Julie will provide the entertainment.

At first they use their Powers of Observation to catalog the traditions and oddities of each new location they visit, but soon their attention turns to parents and negotiating sensitive family dynamics. By the time the duo hits familiar streets again, they may have to accept some uncomfortable truths, but their journey is infused with the humor, heart, and truthfulness that Amy Ignatow is known for.
