"Elliot Allagash" by Simon Rich

Elliot Allagash by Simon Rich is about a very rich kid, Elliot, who tries to make the least liked kid, Seymour, popular. Has some very funny moments and a great ending. It teaches a lesson we can all learn from this quick read. I enjoyed it.

This short novel, Elliot Allagash, by Simon Rich is a funny novel about an evil rich boy who tries to prove he can make, Seymour Herson, the least popular kid in school the most popular.  At first Seymour goes along with it, thankful that he has a friend.  Through manipulating, lying, Elliot not only makes Seymour popular, but also corrupts his character in the process.  When Seymour finally has enough and confronts Elliot, he finds himself on Elliot’s “enemy” list but learns that popularity is not so important after all.  I enjoyed this book and recommend it to teens.
