Popular: Vintage Wisdom for a Modern Geek by Maya Van Wagenen

Popular: Vintage Wisdom for a Modern Geek by Maya Van Wagenen is the story of when Maya decided to take on the task of seeing if advice from the 1950’s is still relevant today in being popular. Maya loves writing but has never really been popular and so when her mom suggested doing a writing project with a popularity book from the 1950’s as a writing experiment Maya decides to give it a go. Along the way of learning about what it means to be popular Maya discovers herself and what makes her happy. This is a really good book about self-discovery, and what it really means to be popular (it is also really funny). The best part of this story is that it is true! As someone who is really shy I really liked this book and it taught me a lot about being more open to other people. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants a funny coming of age story.
