Description

Transitioning to middle school can be the most difficult of all rites of passage in a young person’s life. This straight-talking series seeks to instill the essential qualities of self-confidence, social and intellectual inquisitiveness and fearlessness, and self-esteem in readers approaching their middle school years (and older students who are beginning in a new school after a relocation). Each book serves as an insider’s guide to negotiating the transition with grace and confidence. Sensible strategies are offered on how to cope with the loss of old friends and how to make new friends; how to deal successfully with bullies; how to familiarize oneself with and settle into a new school; how to handle increased academic expectations, including standardized testing; how to get involved in school activities; and how to surround oneself with true friends and create a fulfilling and stimulating social life. Issues are addressed with insight, humor, and compassion.
