This book is about two girls, Julie Graham-Chang and Lydia Goldblatt, who are planning to start Juniour High as popular girls. They start observing the other girls in their 5th grade class and begin experimenting to find the key to being at the top of the social order.
First they try to dye Lydia's hair. Unfortunately they use bleach instead of hair dye and Lydia ends up getting a bald spot. She has to keep using her other hair to cover up the bald spot. They also try dressing fancy, but are informed by their teacher that they are dressed inappropriately. You should read this to see the other ways that they try to become popular.
This book made me feel happy because it was very funny. I am excited to read the other books in this series because this book made me laugh. I also loved the illustrations - the book is designed like a graphic novel with notes back and forth between the two friends. It felt like a scrapbook and a diary at the same time. This book is soooo good!
