The Girls Guide to Conquering Middle School
The transition from elementary school to middle school skirts the borders of traumatic for many girls. Their bodies are changing, their moods are shifting, their friendships are tested, and boys can become a big distraction. Girls may begin to struggle with grades, behavior, and relationships with family and friends. How do they know what to do and what not to do in this new environment with new expectations?
Erica and Jonathan Catherman offer girls ages ten to twelve the practical help they need to make the move to middle school as painless as possible. The "do this, not that" format covers a hundred relevant topics and situations middle school girls will face, including the first day, bullies, test taking, cell phone use, homework, gossip, leadership, respect, sports, PDA, and many more.
My thoughts: Every girl in middle school, or who is about to enter middle school, needs a copy of this book! Filled with etiquette, tips, jokes, and real life experiences, this book is a wonderful resource for girls in middle school. Each subject is accompanied with pictures on dos and don'ts. I love the variety of topics in this book, from personal hygiene to finances, navigating personal relationships and managing schoolwork. This is a fun an informative guide!
I received this book from Revell. This is my honest review.
