Overview

The social world can be a mystery, even to the most savvy among us. While social relationships are frequently a source of joy and satisfaction, they can be a source of frustration and confusion — downright. What is someone to do if his entire social world is a mystery to him? How is a person supposed to proceed in life if she does not understand why others act the way they do, or how she is supposed to behave in order to fit in with others? While Diary of a Social Detective is first and foremost a detective/ mystery book for young readers, it also addresses these often unspoken questions and offers clear-cut, practical strategies for solving social mysteries. The book is unique in that it steps outside the usual box of social skills solutions and delivers insights, tools and solutions within an engaging storyline that kids can relate to. As a result, it has appeal not just for kids in need of social tools, but also for children ages 8+ who are simply in search of a good story. Diary of a Social Detective chronicles the work of young Johnny who, through his own struggles to fit in socially, has become a well-known social detective in his school, helping other kids solve their social mysteries. The book offers kids (and the people who care for them) practical strategies for dealing with some of the most common problems kids face in everyday social situations in a way that is fun and entertaining.
