Surviving seventh grade isn't easy, especially when your former BFF is now one of the popular kids and constantly looking for opportunities to put you down. Luckily for Jenny McAfee, she's got a great group of friends interested in more than outdoing everyone else's clothes, hair, make-up, and cell phones. When their English teacher announces a new mentoring program pairing middle schoolers with kindergartners for activities, Jenny and three of her friends can't wait to sign up. Unfortunately, ex-best friend Addie and the other Pops decide to join, as well. It's not long before Jenny notices a division along popularity lines between the kindergartners. After being forced to spend a disastrous snow day at home with Addie, Jenny finds they're at odds again as the student council makes plans for this year's fund raiser. While Addie wants to stick with the traditional ice-skating party, Jenny catches the attention and support of the eighth grade class president with her idea for school ski trip. Jenny wishes for nothing more than an end to all these rivalries and (maybe) understanding why Addie is so adamantly against hitting the slopes... IT'S ALL DOWNHILL FROM HERE is the eighth book in Nancy Krulik's HOW I SURVIVED MIDDLE SCHOOL series. With an easy-to-relate-to narrator, straight-forward storytelling, and an interactive website full of quizzes, tips, games, and guides, IT'S ALL DOWNHILL FROM HERE is a fun, jaunty read for any middle schooler who's trying to survive.
