    A once lost middle school girl

    Too Old for This, Too Young for That was a great survival guide for my middle school years. At around 7th grade my parents dropped the book into my hands after seeing that I was troubled about school, friends, and life in general. I read through each chapter, learning that I wasn't the only one going through these things and with time it would all pass and I would discover who I was. This was one book I will never forget and forever hold onto. I recommend it for any tween goin through middle school. Now that I am entering High school, I am beginning to read the High SChool survival guide and hope that it will offer as much advise and tips as did this book. Good luck to all those tweens out there and make sure to read this book!

    Too Old for This, Too Young for That: Your Survival Guide for the Middle-School Years

    I received this book as a gift, and I read every single word. This book really helped me get through 6th grade, and now I keep the book on my desk so I can refer to it whenever a problem comes up related to my family, friends, or school. The quotes were so interesting and they were fun too. I'm going to get a copy to give to my cousin who's starting middle school in the fall.

    Too Old for This, Too Young for That: Your Survival Guide for the Middle-School Years

    This is the kind of book middle school kids will want to read on their own, but it's also a terrific book for a parent and young adolescent to read together. Helpful hints on communication, friendships, school, even puberty. The book doesn't take itself too seriously either - lots of fun cartoons.

    Great book for middle school kids and their parents

    This book has everything - fun quizzes (I loved the mad lib in the chapter on body changes), great study tips, and even stuff about bullies.
