About the Author

Maya Van Wagenen is sixteen years old. When she was eleven, her family moved to Brownsville, Texas, the setting of Popular? When not hunched over a desktop writing, Maya enjoys reading, British television, and chocolate. She now lives with her parents and two siblings in rural Georgia. She is a junior in high school but still shares a room with her sixth grade brother. Remarkably, they have not yet killed each other.

Reviews

Maya's voice is fresh and frank, and her experiences at a middle school near the Mexican border provide an often overlooked perspective. --Booklist

"Everyone's happiness project looks different, and I was utterly charmed by Maya Van Wagenen's honest, funny, and thought-provoking account of her efforts to become 'popular.'" --Gretchen Rubin, #1 bestselling author of The Happiness Project "Maya Van Wagenen's memoir, Popular, would have been wonderful to read as a kid, and so reassuring to Nerdy Teenage Me. Her year-long experiment in popularity is timeless; the intelligent and humane way she gets to the heart of the matter is uniquely her. Funny, determined, and wry, Van Wagenen has written a wise, heartfelt guide for other kids eager to keep up." --Rachel Hartman, bestselling author of Seraphina Geeky and dorky, but never wimpy, Maya Van Wagenen is as powerful and honest as she is quirky and funny--and startlingly gifted. She's the real deal, folks, a teenage John Green for the next generation. Stunning." --Margaret Stohl, bestselling co-author of the Beautiful Creatures series An interesting and earnest memoir. --Kirkus Reviews While completely appropriate for middle school readers, Popular is even more entertaining for adults. Van Wagenen is a uniquely gifted talent with a gem of a first novel. --VOYA
