How to "be pretty as well as look pretty" plus six more tips for ruling the school



 
Every girl struggles with popularity throughout middle school—and even in high school, too.

So when 13-year-old Maya Van Wagenen found Betty Cornell’s Teenage Popularity Guide from the 1950’s, she decided to see if the seemingly outdated advice could really make a difference to her social status. Popular: Vintage Wisdom for a Modern Geek is Maya’s funny, graceful account of her brave social experiment—and it’s got some great lessons for all of us.

A plan to be Popular
Maya followed all of the book’s wacky rules and tips—often stepping well out of her comfort zone in the process—and recorded the reactions she got from classmates in what would eventually become her memoir.


Click through the slideshow to get some seriously inspiring popularity tips (spoiler alert: it all starts on the inside!)…then pick up Popular at your favorite bookstore.
