Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Best friends Julie and Lydia are back in this hilarious sequel to Amy Ignatow's breakout novel! <br> After spending all of fifth grade studying popularity together, Julie and Lydia are finally ready to put their hard-earned lessons to use in junior high. But before they can, tragedy strikes: Lydia's mom gets a job in London for six whole months! Before Lydia can say "fancy a cup of tea?" she's thrust into a new school, where she earns a reputation as "the Violent American." Meanwhile Julie's stuck navigating the cliques of American junior high on her own, where she is adopted by a group of troublemaking eighth graders known as the Bichons. The two best friends will have to learn to keep in touch and stand on their own, assisted as always by their trusty notebook. Amy Ignatow's signature sense of humor is on full display in this satisfying sequel.

Horn Book Review

In their second Popularity Papers story, best friends Lydia and Julie are back--but not quite together. Their friendship is tested when Lydia's family moves to England for six months. Separately in their journals and jointly via email, the girls continue to explore what it means to be popular in two totally new environments. The scrapbook-style format is still successful here.
