Meet the most socially awkward twins in the world Asia and Tasia McKinley in the first book of The Anti-Socialites Diaries. It all begins with their tenth birthday party where none of the invited guests bother to show up. Asia and Tasia fear their luck is about to change in fifth grade at Whitlock Elementary School... for the worse.

In the first two months of the school year Asia faints at the State Spelling Bee and Tasia loses a major dance battle against her arch nemesis Porscha... that's only the beginning. During the winter Asia worries that her crush on class cutie Marc will never amount to anything until she gets a Secret Admirer Card on Valentine’s Day. Who could it be from? Meanwhile Tasia plans to rebound from her dance battle debacle at a Talent Show in the spring with the help of glam girl Rosalyn. 

At the end of the school year both Asia and Tasia learn the importance of friendship and staying true to yourself amidst mounting social pressure to fit in.

This book was truly entertaining. It reminded me how silly it is to try to keep up with the Jones, (everyone else), instead of just being yourself. What I didn't like were the bullies in the story and the teachers inability to put a stop to it. There was no consequences to their actions. I don't know any teachers who would have put up with that stuff. I would recommend this book to any grade schooler...I'm sure they could relate.
