    The Popularity Papers (The Popularity Papers, #1), The Long-Distance Dispatch Between Lydia Goldblatt and Julie Graham-Chang (The Popularity Papers, #2). The Popularity Papers: Research for the Social Improvement and General Betterment of Lydia Goldblatt & Julie. Graham-Chang (review). Kate Quealy- Gainer. 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 .

    The first book of the series is their journal, documenting their misadventures to become more popular, as well as their family and school life. Format[ edit ] The story is told in a journal format, written and drawn by the two main characters. The books are hand-drawn, with each of the two main protagonists having a different writing and drawing style. In interviews with the news media, [8] Ignatow has shown that she only uses writing and drawing implements that are easily available to children, such as crayons, markers, and colored pencils. Similar to many other fictional and satirical children's novels, The Popularity Papers is written in a journal or diary format, illustrating the events of the protagonists as they seek to resolve their quest of determining the causation of popularity. In this way, the author of such a novel is able to relate the content in a much more familiar and friendly setting to the children whom are targeted as the primary reading demographic. There are many examples of similarly formatted children's novels that have seen commercial success, such as the extremely well known Diary of a Wimpy Kid amongst many others. The viability of the journal-type format in children's books has proven to be a successful concept, seen notably by the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series which has been on the New York Times' bestseller list for over 10 years and earned author Jeff Kinney a spot on Time's most influential people. The Popularity Papers, as a novel about two middle school girls, certainly qualifies as such. In their many expeditions to determine the essence of popularity in junior high, Julie and Lydia have a multitude of complex subjects and adult concepts foisted upon them, which lead them to "growing up," or at least to begin realizing what the adult world has in store for them. Among the most prominent and complicated for the two girls are romance, particularly when a young Norwegian boy confesses his love, and friendship, which they soon discover can be fragile. This realization that their budding independence might conflict with their parents is yet another instance where the girls begin to comprehend that their world is changing as they continue to grow up, a crucial tenet of a bildungsroman storyline. Despite having little to do with the plot or the themes of the novels, the novel and its supporters were forced to defend it in the public sector. For example, in , a Washington state middle school social studies teacher contested the use of the novel for class reading citing the presence of a major political debate, referring to homosexuality, thus classifying the series as age-inappropriate.

    Don't be afraid; it is a good message. They are amazingly funny and earnest fifth graders.

    Sweet Book Summary: The full title of this book is "The Popularity Papers: Fifth graders, Julie and Lydia, embark on a project they call the Popularity Papers.

    They are on a quest to study popularity and to be popular themselves. They would like to start junior high next year ahead of the curve. This may sound scary to some parents. Perhaps you are thinking, I don't want my daughter to worry about such trivial things, etc. If so, you would be wrong! It allows kids to see the ridiculousness of it all. What author Ignatow has done, in a highly entertaining package, is quite brilliant.

    The humor is witty and dry and combined with the drawings, truly side-splitting. I enjoyed this book immensely, as did my nine year old daughter. Lydia lives with her single mom and Julie lives with her two dads.

    Like many concepts in the book world, "series" is a somewhat fluid and contested notion.

    A good rule of thumb is that series have a conventional name and are intentional creations , on the part of the author or publisher. For now, avoid forcing the issue with mere "lists" of works possessing an arbitrary shared characteristic, such as relating to a particular place.

    Avoid series that cross authors, unless the authors were or became aware of the series identification eg. Also avoid publisher series, unless the publisher has a true monopoly over the "works" in question. So, the Dummies guides are a series of works. But the Loeb Classical Library is a series of editions, not of works.
