What if you decided to try them out--without telling anybody--just to see what might happen?

Maya Van Wagenen does just that and records all the trials--can you say girdle?--and triumphs in this thought-provoking memoir of her eighth grade year. Her bravery and moxie take you along on a journey of laughter and tears. She shows what it truly takes to be popular. Powerful, pure-hearted, real.
