(Age 14+) I think the book Popular by Gareth Russell was a great book. The main characters in the book are Meredith Harper, Imogen Dawson, Cameron Matthews, Kerry Davison and there was another girl, Catherine O'Rourke but she wasn't in the story as much as the others. The story I think is focusing on bullying, peer pressure and many other things! The book is mainly about Meredith, Imogen, Cameron and Kerry being the most popular and most gorgeous people in the school. They go around being mean and cold towards pretty much everybody, even poor Catherine who is in their group. Only the 'A-listers' are worth talking to, but even the most popular people in the school have problems and secrets. The age group for this book I think would be 14+.
