this book tells you almost everything you need to know to get through middle school. it talks about dances, boys, cool ways to make studying more fun, how to do your makeup, popularity, puberty and tons more great stuff(okay, so puberty isnt that great, its kind of weird, but this book tells u some useful information about it)! i recommend this book to every girl starting middle school!
At the beggining I found the subjects ok, but twords the end it gets super cool! I recomend this book for any 5 or 6 grader who is or is afraid of middle school. This book tells you A LOT of info!
This book really helps. I recomnended it to any girl who is scared about middle school.
Every Girl that reads this book will be ready for middle school before you can say 'middle school here i come'!!
Addresses an interesting variety of subjects that face middle school girls. I found it borderline ridiculous, but as a middle school girl, I probably would have appreciated it more. Rather than illustrations, every few pages has a highlighted section which may include a series of helpful tips, an interview, or checklist.
So i had this book for 3 years and i just started middle school in august. One day i was taking pics on line camera but suddenly a boy sitting beside me started taking pics with me. Weell he grabbed my hand and started holding my phone with me! I was smiling and laughing with him. But i was screaming my head off inside. So i read this book again and it really helped weeeeeell now it happened yesterday. Tommorrow i may write what had happened. Any ideas of what i should do?
I'm going into 7th grade. To be honest with you it's not that hard. I know everything to help you. So if you need help or have questions search up middle school then click down until you find 102 days of middle school. Look for a title comment that says Middle school. Put that as your title than write what you need help with or questions. I will not answer to any inopropreate things. P.S. Great book
