Meg Cabot's "how to be popular"

i finished looking for alaska and i was soooo good. so no im on to meg cabot's "how to be popular"

i love meg cbot, she is an awesome writer, but i dont know about this book. its a good ook but i just dont agree with it. this book tells you about a girl who wants tobe popular and how she sees the popular people. but i dont think meg did her research on this one. she says that popular people have this in common:\

"they always have a ready smile for everyone"...true,sorta. they may have a smile but the dirty look and sneers come out just as easily

"remember a person name...popular people call others by their names..." true

"are good listeners who encourage others to talk about themselves" hahahahhaa not true

"make a person they are speaking to feel important-and do it sincerely. they always make the conversation about YOU, not about themselves!" yeah right, popular people are conceited, obnoxious, and annoying

how do i know this you may ask? well i defintily was "a popular" in middle school and i thought if i talked to someone who was "uncool" that they felt honored to be talking to me. thats the way we all were. in high school i dont really know. there is a definite loud group that you could consider to be the popular people but it is not nearly as bad as middle school. it sucks trying to be popular. i skipped lunch everyday in 6th grade because it wasn't cool to eat infront of boys. i would get lunch money from my mom and just pocket the money. i think it was after that, that i decided that this was stupid.

all in all populr people are people-pleasers and will do ANYTHING for people to like them

Oh my gosh we did the same thing in middle school too! Except we ate something small and always the same thing like a half of a bagle or an apple. Crazy. I forgot about that. And the boys were always like: 'Why aren't you eating?' and we were like: 'We're not hungry.' Ha!
