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:

Lydia and Julie have been through many adventures as they navigated junior high, popularity, families, and friendship. In the final adventure in the series, the peaceful world of Hamlin Junior High is rocked when Lydia and Julie learn that theyand#8217;re going to have to play host to new students whose school burned down. The outside threat bands the Hamlin kids together against a common enemyand#8212;for a while. When the enemy gets their hands on Lydia and Julieand#8217;s notebook, no one wants anything to do with the girls. Itand#8217;s the biggest threat to their friendship (and a pretty definitive failure of their quest for popularity), and it can only be solved one way. Two words: dance battle.

Synopsis:

Itand#8217;s summertime, and Julie and Lydia 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 theyand#8217;ll provide the entertainment.

At first Julie and Lydia 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 family 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.
