Popular by Sofia O’Hara

I received this book from the author for the purpose of this review. All comments and opinions are entirely my own.

The Synopsis:

Girls are under enormous pressure to be pretty, popular and skinny. This book is specifically designed for girls.

Jenna is a girl who wishes to be popular. She admires the pretty girls in her school who seem to have it all. A poster shows Jenna how to have it all.


Popularย is a very short story that has a deep impact. Dealing with the peer pressure and bullying in today’s public schools, this book reveals some very special things about a young girl who wants so desperately to fit in.

I was surprised at how profound of a message the author was able to include so simply in this story to relate to young elementary and middle grade girls, that one cannot expect other’s to like them if they, themselves, don’t like themselves.

The story did tend to repeat itself towards the end, but it was just driving home the point so it wasn’t a real big deal. The story is clean, effective and very well written.

I give it 4 out of 5 stars and recommend it to girls struggling with bullying and peer pressure from ages 6 to 10.
