In the past few years, a plethora of fictional students have been conducting experiments in order to become more (or less) popular. Some are working on projects for their science or psychology classes while others have more personal motivations. Some know that you don't have to be popular to be cool while others still need to learn the lesson. With humor, romance, makeovers, makeunders, faux paus and 4.0s, here are the books that make the grade.
