Most 13-year-old girls would be devastated to learn that their family has to move across the country from sunny California to New Jersey.
But most girls aren't Dorie Dilts.
Dorie is a scientist, and a bit of a loner. She has long been observing the popular girls at school, envious of their friendships. So moving to a completely different school makes her excited, because now she has the perfect opportunity to put her scientific experiment into play.
Objectives: To get popular. Hypothesis: If she gets dumped by Grant, then she will become popular. Results: Inconclusive...perhaps?
The first in THE SOCIAL EXPERIMENTS OF DORIE DILTS, DUMPED BY POPULAR DEMAND is inventive, smart, and funny. While Dorie may be wise in all things academia, her social awkwardness is something that girls of any age can relate to.
Dorie's discovery of true friendship and the meaning of popularity will be unforgettable in this humorous novel that has more heat than an exothermic reaction!
