Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Fresh off their epic summer road trip, Lydia and Julie are back and ready to take seventh grade by storm. Well, Lydia is: She wants to start a band, and she's convinced Julie to join her. The Macramé Owls are joined by Roland (expert at the hardingfele ) and Jane (expert at drama). None of them, unfortunately, are experts at rocking out. The band needs more practice, but instead Lydia and Julie find themselves riding an unexpected wave of popularity to their own belated birthday party. The girls may have accidentally stumbled upon the secret to popularity--if only the secret weren't so completely humiliating. Hilarious, observant, and honest, this installment of the series has all of Amy Ignatow's signature charm, while bringing our beloved heroines to a new turning point in their lives.

Praise for The Popularity Papers: Book Five
"Ignatow's illustrations (attributed to Julie), humorous comments, and the story's sticky situations make this a gregarious addition to the series."
-- Booklist

Horn Book Review

In this fifth installment, BFFs Lydia and Julie, about to turn thirteen, decide to learn to play music and start a band (but not to be popular). Dilemmas ensue and the girls survive various embarrassments. Told in the same lighthearted style in alternating hand-written, illustrated diary entries and internet message conversations, the girls are still relatable and the series continues to be enjoyable.
