Popularity Papers #05: The Awesomely Awful Melodies of Lydia Goldblatt & Julie Graham-Changby Amy Ignatow
Synopses & Reviews
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.
Love is in the air! Julie and Roland are an official andldquo;couple,andrdquo; which means . . . well, theyandrsquo;re not exactly sure what, except that it makes Papa Dad extremely anxious. Meanwhile, Lydiaandrsquo;s mom announces that sheandrsquo;s marrying Coach Eric (the soccer coach from England), and Lydia and her sister, Melody, are not happy about it. With the wedding date looming, the girls will have to figure out how to accept the inevitability of changeandmdash;and realize that even if the change seems terrible at first, it can still end up all right, as long as you have good friends at your side.
