Popular or Not?!

My kids and I read a lot, and very often together.  It excites me beyond measure to share something that special with my kids, and invite them to an exciting literary adventure where words are the ignition and imagination turns the key. When I was growing up, I loved Judy Blume books. I started reading them when I was about 8 and Judy went right with me through the female rites of passage and into adulthood.

I am always looking for books that will gain a place in my kids hearts. This also gives me a great excuse to read books for their age groups, which I also LOVE! Elise Allen's Populazzi is one of those books. My daughter and I have both read the book, and laughed and talked about it. Together. Yeah - that is a feat with a teenage daughter. I didn't admit to my daughter that I read it more than once, but she pretty much knows I read it first! It has won a place in our library of 'books mom reads and thinks the whole world should read'. This is the home of the generational books - that get handed down just like family heirlooms.

Populazzi beguiles us by inviting us in to a world of social etiquette and Nirvana-ish teen spirit. High school nobody, Cara's move to a new school gives her the opportunity to create a new image. At her old school, she was never part of the popular clique; it's time to make a change - and her best friend, Claudia, has a fool proof way for her to gain access and climb the social ladder with this new golden opportunity. A chance to change your look, your status, your friends, your wardrobe - and be brand new?

What could go wrong, right? I can't give it away. You'll just have to get on the Populazzi bandwagon to find out.

Of course, you can buy the book at Barnes & Noble and other retailers. I'm giving away a copy of the book, plus a surprise novel - to one lucky winner. Enter on the rafflecopter for your chance - just in time for Christmas! The bonus is that your teen can join the interactive website for life beyond the ladder.

By the way, the book has already been optioned for film...visit Elise Allen to find out more about the author and the book.
