6. Middle school (much scarier than it sounds!)
5. His best friend gone girl-crazy
4. A runaway mom who has no phone!
3. The threat of a swirlie on his birthday
2. A terrifying cousin
1. His # 1 fan, Bubbe (his Jewish grandmother)
1/2. Did we mention Hammy, the hamster who’s determined to break David’s heart?
When David and his best friend have a fight, David is lucky enough to make a pretty cool new friend, Sophie–who just (gulp) happens to be a girl. Sophie thinks David’s videos are hilarious, and she starts sending out the links to everyone she knows. Sophie’s friends tell their friends, and before David knows it, thousands of people are viewing his videos–including some of the last people he would have expected.
David may still feel like a real-life schmo, but is he ready to become an Internet superstar?

It was over all a story of how this kid was going into middle school with hard times. Like a heart braking hamster, a cute girl he likes, an evil bully set out to give him a swirlly, and a former best freind. This is a great book for 5th grade kids heading into middle school!!!

Have you wondered what it would be like to be a YouTube sensation? David Greenberg, the main character of Donna Gephart’s How to Survive Middle School, finds this out as he enters middle school for the very first time. After breaking up with his best friend Elliot, this book contains a tiny bit of mystery. The mystery as to why Elliot was so obsessed with Cara Epstein and her purple hearts. David has troubles at school, but at home, his YouTube videos are doing so well! Between a surprising hamster, a red-headed crush, and avoiding the school bully and his new friend, (Elliot!) David has enough drama going on in his life. But will the success of his videos help him through this awful time?

When I read this book I thought it was every good and it is a good book for middle school students. I think that it was every good.
