Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
AGERANGE: Ages 9 to 12.

The lead of Scholastic's "How I Survived Middle School" series is just the person to shake up classmates' ideas of themselves and others in this bright, nicely-told story for this particular age group. Jenny McAfee's middle school is planning a carnival to raise funds for the people of a small southern town destroyed by an earthquake. An immediate competition arises when Jenny's rival Addie bets that she will raise more money that Jenny. The loser will come to school in pajamas for a day. Addie belongs to a group that is fittingly known as the Pops (for popular). Just deciding with her friends to create a better booth than Addie and the Pops is not enough of a problem for Jenny; a new girl from the UK appears and is immediately drawn into the Pops group. The Pops try to fashion themselves after this new arrival, all dressing the same and talking with English accents. They write down everything she says. "Crisps" are potato chips. "Bangers" are sausages and "chips" are French fries. There are many lessons to be learned from this wonderful story perfectly suited for kids this age. Reviewer: Joan Elste

    Jenny McAfee has a ton of best friends but isn't the most popular girl in her school, since she definitely isn't in with the Pops. But she doesn't let that bother her, since this year she beat out Addie, her ex-best friend who just became popular, for President in the 6th grade student council race. But that only made Addie VP. <BR/><BR/>The first meeting of the 6th, 7th and 8th grades Presidents and Vice Presidents turns interesting when ideas for raising money are thrown around -- and Jenny goes against Addie's idea for another dance, and votes instead for a carnival. Addie, who is so used to being in charge of everything, wants to make Jenny pay for not backing her up, even though they haven't been friends for like forever. <BR/><BR/>So Addie decides to make a bet with Jenny that whoever has the least popular booth at the carnival has to wear their pajamas to school, the not so pretty ones, and of course Jenny agrees. <BR/><BR/>Then enters the new girl, Sam, the girl who makes all the Pops in 6th grade look like 5th graders. Jenny and Addie both see this as the perfect opportunity to make their booth better than the other's, but it is up to Sam to decide who she wants to be friends with. <BR/><BR/>Sweet and funny, this next installment in the HOW I SURVIVED MIDDLE SCHOOL series is one that readers do not want to miss. Who would have guessed that there was so much drama in the 6th grade?
