Lydia Meadows, a former lawyer turned full-time mother, is startled to learn that her daughter, Erin, is in the middle schools popular crowd, a tight foursome whose mothers are also great friends. Then a new student ruthlessly targets Erin to boost her own popularity, and Lydia has to watch as her daughters phone stops ringing. But whats even more unexpected is how this turn of events affects the mothers - the grown women who should know better. Have they turned their focus and drive from their careers to an obsession with the social lives of their pre-teen daughters? A Most Uncommon Degree of Popularity is a novel of manners, an unabashed chronicle of the rules, rituals, details, and foibles of raising a daughter.
