No wonder it’s called “middle school.” If you’re in grades 6–9, you’re not a child anymore...but you’re not a grown-up either. You have more freedom...but not enough. Your life is more exciting...and more stressful. You’re faced with a lot of decisions...but where can you turn for advice? Your friends are as confused as you are, and your parents might not understand what you’re going through.
Finally there’s a survival guide especially for middle schoolers. Comprehensive, interactive, friendly, and fun, it addresses issues that matter to young people this age. Survival tips cover everything from the physical and emotional changes and how to cope, to dealing with family, friends, and school, to taking charge of your life through good decision making and goal setting.
Packed with facts, advice, quotes from kids, and helpful tips for surviving the in-between years, this is just what boys and girls need to make the most of middle school—and beyond.

This comprehensive guide offers preteens seven chapters filled with information and advice to help ease the transition from childhood to adolesence. A "survival tip" begins each chapter. The first tip, "Get used to your changing body," presents the greatest challenge for middle-schoolers. The authors handle this sensitive subject very well, discussing the body changes of boys and girls using appropriate terms like penis and vagina, and briefly describing events that occur during puberty, such as erection and ejaculation, and the onset of menstruation. Other chapters cover self-esteem, family relationships, friendships, school and extracurricular activities. The final tip, "Take charge of your life," gives some good advice on making choices and managing time and money. Sprinkled throughout the book are humorous cartoon drawings; reproducible fill-in pages, including an online safety contract, budget chart, and goal-setting guide; kid quotes; and listings of print and online resources.
