The Popularity Papers The Awesomely Awful Melodies of Lydia Goldblatt and Julie Graham-Chang by Amy Ignatow

Fresh off their epic summer road trip, Julie and Lydia are back and ready to take seventh grade by storm. Well, at least Lydia is: She wants to start a band and she's convinced Julie to join her. The Macrame Owls are joined by Roland (expert at the hardingfele) and Jane (expert at drama). None of them, unfortunately, are experts at rocking out. Before they know it they've got their first gig: A six year old's birthday party that turns into an epic disaster. What they need is more practice. Instead they find themselves hosting a belated birthday party for themselves, which somehow becomes the social event of the season. They may have accidentally stumbled upon the secret to popularity -- if only it weren't completely humiliating. Hilarious, observant and honest, this entry into the series has all of Amy Ignatow's signature charm while bringing our beloved heroines to a new, exciting point in their lives.
