I was ready for the first day of middle school to be bad, but it's worse than I imagined. My best friend Becca missed the bus; I can't find my way around the school; I still haven't found Becca; I don't see any of my friends; and every time the bell rings, I have to worry about getting to the next class on time.

The phys. ed. teacher sounds like a prison guard. Math class is even worse. I've been sent to the principal's office...and it's not even my fault. No wonder they call it middle school. You're stuck in the middle between little kid and grown-up, just trying to make your way out of the confusion. But some kids actually look happy here. Does that mean there's a chance things will get better?

About the Author:

Lou Kassem has written more than a dozen books for young people. She lives in Southwestern Virginia.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 6-8 Cindy sorts out the confusion of beginning seventh gradechanging classes, competing for limited chairs in the band's saxophone section, missing last year's friends and noticing possible new onesby writing a rule book for middle school. She summarizes each experience in a maxim for her survival manual, e.g., don't laugh at funerals; choose enemies carefully; friends are changeable. Cindy exhibits typical adolescent behaviorsecrecy, bruised emotions and mood swingsin an eventful year that culminates in a search for a friend who has run away from home because his father expects him to excel at sports when he prefers to work with computers. Southern phrases, like sass, fussing and hissy fit, reinforce the Virginia setting. Pat Harrington, Phoenix Public Library
