10 Dos & Don'ts When You're The New Kid: A Survival Guide for Teens Starting at a New School by J.C. Tilton

Being the new kid in school is tough, especially when you're a teen. Now, thanks to 10 Dos &Don'ts When You're the New Kid, it can be a lot easier.

It's a simple fact: being the "new kid" in school is a challenge. First, you have to deal with leaving your old home and saying goodbye to old friends. Then, you have to navigate your way around a new school and make new friends. That's not easy for a kid of any age, but when you're in high school, it can be especially hard. Stilt, it's not all bad-at least, it doesn't have to be. As author J.C. Tilton tells us, moving to a new school "can be a great opportunity to reinvent yourself," and that can be pretty terrific. It helps if you "take control where you can from day one," she advises. "With a little planning, confidence, and a sense of humor, you can avoid common pitfalls and make this a smoother move."

Tilton knows what it's like to move around. From the time she started kindergarten to the day she received her diploma, she attended eight different schools-three elementary, two-junior highs, and three senior highs. She made plenty of "new kid" mistakes … but you don't have to. 10 Dos & Don'ts When You're the New Kid: A survival guide for teens starting at a new school will guide you every step of the way. With chapter titles such as "DO what you (and your parents) can to make your first day easier," "DON'T over-share," and "DO know your audience," Tilton's helpful hints and insightful suggestions will-ease you through those awkward first days (or sure, maybe a couple weeks) of feeling that everybody knows and likes everyone else-except you.

Written with warmth and humor and more than a little excellent advice, 10 Dos & Don'ts When You're the New Kid is a concise and easy-to-reference volume that will have you feeling better about your new situation from the very first page.
