"Fresh, funny, and sometimes wrenching, Populazzi nails what it's like to try to find yourself while navigating the crazy world of high school. I loved it." -- Hilary Duff "Populazzi is a fresh, fun peek behind the popularity curtain. Elise Allen is a welcome new voice in YA fiction." -- Eileen Cook, Author of The Education of Hailey Kendrick "Populazzi is a smart, fun, and energetic ride through the twisting hallways of high school popularity." -- Deb Caletti, author of The Secret Life of Prince Charming "Hilarious, physiologically chewy, downright Machiavellian, and heartfelt in all the most satisfying ways." -- Matthew Quick, author of Sorta Like a Rock Star "In her first solo novel, Allen (coauthor of Elixir with Hilary Duff) offers a smart mix of hilarity and tragedy in this Macbeth -- meets -- Mean Girls tale." -- Publishers Weekly "The story unflinchingly depicts the dark and dangerous side of high-school popularity, making it a captivating read." -- Kirkus Reviews "Satisfying chick-lit...This brilliantly titled novel delivers exactly the right escapist fluff while remaining clean and innocent enough to appear on both junior high and high school shelves...and it should." -- School Library Journal
Cara has never been one of those girls: confident, self-possessed, and always ready with the perfect thing to say. A girl at the very top of the popularity tower. One of the Populazzi. Now, junior year could change everything. Cara's moving to a new school, and her best friend urges her to seize the moment -- with the help of the Ladder. Its rungs are relationships, and if Cara transforms into the perfect girlfriend for guys ever-higher on the tower, she'll reach the ultimate goal: Supreme Populazzi. The Ladder seems like a lighthearted social experiment, a straight climb up, but it quickly becomes gnarled and twisted. And when everything goes wrong, only the most audacious act Cara can think of has a chance of setting things even a little bit right.
