The Popular Project

Skylar Green was always lame and uncool. Ugly too. Her final project of the year is assigned at the end of her junior year so she has all summer to think about it. She chose popularity. Pretending to be someone else her entire senior year as Skype Noelle Miami. Of course she does end up being popular and making a ton of friends. Will someone find out that she is Skylar? Will she fall in love in the process? Read the popularity project by SnapLock to find out.


4. One: Skylar the loser

Skylar's P.O.V.

I tap my pencil on my notebook. "Skylar get some sleep. It's almost 12 am." Mom Says poking her head in the door.

"Okay I will." I Say.

"Goodnight." Mom sighs before leaving. 

I write down every single idea I have on my paper. We have a senior project and we have to do some cool thing or whatever. I don't have any cool ideas so I'm struggling. It's the first night of summer and instead of partying I am sitting here working on NEXT YEARS homework. How lame am I? Very lame. Sorry I didn't introduce myself. I am Skylar Green I am 16 years old (gonna be 17 in July) and I have red hair, glasses and red hair. My hair falls out a lot because of the dye. It sucks but nothing I can do about it. 




"Skylar!" Mom Yells and I bolt open my eyes.

"What!?" I Ask sitting up.

"You fell asleep at you're laptop again." Mom Says. 

"I did? Oh yeah I did." I Chuckle. 

"Get out of sleepy mode. It's 12:00 pm." Mom Says. 

She leaves my room and I sit up super quick. 

I change into some sweatpants and a t-shirt. I put my glasses on and walk downstairs. 

"Morning." Dad says flipping through the newspaper. 

"Morning." I Say yawning.

I pour myself a bowl full of frosted flakes. I sit down at the table with my family and eat them up. 

"You were up late last night." Dad Says.

"Yeah." I Say. 

Mom walks in the kitchen with her phone up to her ear talking. "Yes I know! If only being popular was that easy!" 

BEING POPULAR! "Great idea!" I Yell before running upstairs and writing it down. I jump around and smile. Thank god my mom is smart. She didn't even realize she gave me an idea. Now I need to plan this all out. Okay so I can say I moved then pretend to be someone else who just moves there. My name will be Skype Noelle Miami. That seems legit.

"You okay?" Mom asks walking in.


"Fine! You just gave me an idea." I Say. 

"What? I did?" Mom Asks.

"Mhm. Being popular! The popular project! Haven't you seen those movies? The loser aka me gets a project and pretends to be someone else and tries to be popular!" I Say. 

"Oh cool! Are you planning it out?" Mom Asks.

"Yeah wanna hear what I've got?" I Ask.

"Of course go ahead." Mom Says sitting on my bed. 

I explain the whole thing to her and she smiles.

"We'll have to talk to Principal Brenner about this one." Mom Says.

"This project is 80% of my senior grade! Do you want me to fail?" I Ask.

"No.. I suppose not." Mom Says. 

"Thank you and good day." I Say before turning around to my desk again. 

"Okay whatever. I'll schedule a meeting with him for tomorrow." Mom Says. 

"Thank you." I Say. I hear my bedroom door shut and I grab my macbook pro and open it.

I go onto gmail and scroll through my emails. No good ones I can reply to. I mean who uses email these days? Teachers and students do. Parents do. Okay a lot of people do but that's besides the point. I CAN'T BELIEVE I HAVE AN IDEA!!!




"Skylar I got good news." Mom Says cutting her steak.

"Yeah?" I Ask.

"We have a meeting tomorrow with the principal." Mom Says.

"Okay I'll finish my planning after dinner." I Say.

"Great idea. The meeting is at noon and I have work at 7:45 tomorrow so I am taking my lunch break from 11:30 to 1:00 pm. Long break but I explained to them what's happening." Mom Says.

"Okay." I Say. 


After i eat I go to my room and finish my planning. I could move in with my cousin Nina. She just moved to town and has a mansion. It would all work. I'd have to ask her but I can do that after the appointment tomorrow. This is a great idea. I hope it works.
