    3. To see full review click here.She s not related to Patrick Dempsey if that s what you re wondering If she was, I might ve liked Sugar Magnolia Maggie better.If you want to really know how to be unpopular all you have to dress in an inconspicuous manner and have a desire to do something other than socialize like read YA books Of course, you might get French Fries thrown at you in the school s courtyard, but that s another story for another time.This book though tells you that the only way to be u [...]

    4.

    8. Ugh.You know, unless it s explicitly stated that the book I m reading is fantasy, I like it to have some kind of grasp on reality.This one didn t.I got about half way through before I gave up and read the last chapter before tossing it on the pile to take to the used bookstore The characters were unrealistic and the plot was ridiculous and shallow and none of it seemed to get any better by the end of the book.Maybe it s me Maybe I was expecting too much But the idea a girl who has spent her enti [...]

    9. I loved this book Maggie reminded me about how tumultuous high school can be and boy, am I happy to be through those years Yes, her story is a bit exagerated, but at the same time high school can be so full of drama Having had the chance to experience it vicariously through daughter numer two Glad it s over Loved the Austin touches and Maggie s character in general She felt real in so many ways.

    10. I heard of this book through a tumblr post recommending sunny afternoon books and the title had grabbed my attention I read a few negative reviews and thought Mmmh, I do not think this is going to disturb me I won t see it that way and started reading Boy, was I wrong.People complained that this book was unrealistic, that no sane girl would try purposefully NOT to be popular, because at this age, everyone craves to be liked I can believe it, but what I couldn t condone in this book was the main [...]

    13. Summary Maggie is in her senior year of high school, and her hippie parents are moving the family Again It hurts too much to say goodbye, so what would happen if in their new town, she tried to not make friends Review I probably should have stopped reading this after 50 pages because I didn t really like it.Things that bothered me Too much internal dialogue It s boring when the main character just comes out and tells you her emotions all the time Ending fizzled The only thing that kept me readin [...]

    15. Two or three stars, three or two Hmm This book actually annoyed me than anything because Maggie is such a snobby bitch throughout most of it.but since the point is that she changes, I guess she kinda had to be Right It s just hard finding any sympathy with her because she s just slightly intolerable And that romantic ending Really What a letdown Screw it, two stars it is I really had higher hopes for this one Oh well.

    19. She did what This review will be short.This book was pretty epic I think in some ways There were things I loved and things I absolutely could not stand I loved the whole idea of the book It was hilarious Trying to be unpopular and doing outrages things to achieve it It was so different from the other high school books I ve read I had to keep reading just to find out what crazy thing she d do next I liked the idea of the little romance in the book, not the Trevor part Her pining over her ex was e [...]

    20. Maggie Dempsey is a pro at fitting in That s because she never stays in one place for than eight months And that s because her parents are all about going somewhere They don t see it as leaving, unlike Maggie, who s had to leave behind a best friend and a boyfriend in Portland, Oregon Maggie is tired of being hurt, so she comes up with Operation Avoid Friends she s going to be unpopular.This is harder than it sounds Maggie has to come up with ridiculous schemes in order to seem like a complete [...]

I m currrently reading How Not to Be Popular This book is about a teenage girl who keeeps moving all around the country and now she has landed in Austin, TX The big thing in this book is that, since she moves around so much, she s just going to not make any friends in Austin because she knows she s just going to move again This book is very fast paced because at every turn, there a friendly girl, a hot boy, and her parents doing something insane Maggie has come to hating her parents because they [...]

    22. How Not to Be Popular was a phenomenal book It s the story of a girl whose parents don t like to settle down a lot and for that they don t stay in one place very long This time, she s decided to not fit in so she doesn t feel bad leaving people behind I liked the humor that the author brought to this book, from her parent s zany actions to the outfits she wears to try and not fit in The ending was a rather large twist something I didn t see coming I liked the view this story was written in too T [...]

    24. I felt this book was an overall good read Maggie the protagonist of the story is tired of moving around all the time So she vows to not make friends at her new school because she will be leaving soon anyway I found this story heartwarming and funny, with real life teen issues being tackled such as bullying and fitting in.

    25. This book was really interesting the first girly girl book i pick up by my self one day having no interest in the books in the library.I give it 3.5 stars wasn t the best book in the world but its interesting, this book is as a girl book so boys don t pick it up and read it, its going to kill some brain cells of all of you trying to read it.

    27. This was a sweet young adult book, with Sugar Magnolia Dempsey as main character, daughter of hippie parents which don t get tied down to one place The thoughts going inside Magnolia a.k.a Maggie s mind are hilarious How Not to Be Popular was funny and enjoyable Nothing much, but the light reading that I needed.

    29. This book is really funny and entertaining I thought the girl Maggie was a bit mean, even in the beginning when she thinks that she can t possibly ever think of dorks as freinds Also Maggie did not do a good job in not being popular She could ve tried to be standoffish and blend in to become invisible That would keep her from getting freinds.Its a fun read but not a must read.
