Survive and Thrive in Middle School! Get an insider's view of middle school life! Learn survival secrets from actual students! Recognize mistakes made and lessons learned! Gather hints and tips on this transition to adolescence! Survival Secrets of Middle School will help students navigate the new world of middle school.

The topics covered are as diverse as the adolescents who wrote them. From managing lockers to bullying to approaching teachers, each chapter has at least one "secret" that has helped the individual writer persevere. These teen authors have a no-nonsense approach to the changes, challenges and choices of middle school told with the candor that only kids who have "been there and done that" can impart.
