This book is a sampler they show a sumery of a book then they show you the first chapter of the book they just gave you a sumery on. This is ment to help you find books for your age for me I did find a book I liked so it isn't a rip off just a misunderstanding, but it could have better organization.

This has nothing to do with middle school it just sugguest books you may like if your in middle school. Oh and middle school is not hard to survive but here are some tips on how to survive: 1. establish great friends. A great friend is some one who gets you( example understands your jokes dirty or not) and you have stuff incoman with them like playing sports, loving the same movies,books,ect. But one of the best qaulities a great friend has is you like hanging out with them. I mean it's great and all to like the same stuff but if you can't stand being around them then don't be come friends with them there is no point in making yourself misrable. 2. On the first day of middle school if you don't know where you are going ask one of those teachers in the halls. Don't be afraid everyone does it! There is no point in being late to class that is way more akward than asking for directions. 3.Try not to be late to class because that is akward.This is what happens usally you walk into a classroom late "room turns deadly quiet and everone turns to stare at you while you make the walk of akward sclince over to the teacher to tell them why you where late". 4.how to make walking into class less akward A)You can just say"wow its quiet in here"while walking to the teacher to fill the scilence so its less akward. B) make sure you have the pass ready then quickly go to your seat then so that the attention of the class will quickly go back to the teacher. 5.Don't under any sircomstances procrastanate! If you do then your screwed because you end not doing your home work . In class the teacher will proably ask every one to get there homework out then you don't have it and it is soooo terribly akward not to have your homework because then the teacher will ask you were it is then you will have to make up a lie or tell them the truth.people normaly do the first one. Just saying. And that concludes those tips for now if you have any more questions feel free to ask them and I will try to answer them best I can to the knolewge I have. Thanks, -B.F. P.s. My reaspons might not come right away I have a life you know.

This book made my year better by a longshot

I thought it was funny that many wrote comments complaining that the book did not give tips as suggested. If you read the cover those are all the tips...the last one says to carry a good book and explains that this book suggests those... These books are suggested for 9 - 13 years. Enjoy!

I thought that this was an actual survival guide to middle school, but it's only a collection of books! Misleading cover alert! Disappointed in this book. :(

There are many off topic reports that I am reporting. I don't like that I have to be the one to keep going through these. I need to know whether this book is good or not and be reasonable. It is bad because theres no summary, but i haven't read it so don't take my word for it. Report this reveiw if you must but don't be a hater.
