Description-

  • Middle school is the ultimate transitional time in a young person's life. Amidst all the other changes, physical, emotional, academic, social, one's friendships are also growing, evolving, expanding, and sometimes ending. Students from several different elementary schools are suddenly thrown together and new peer and friendship groups form. During a period of such momentous change and flux, the shifting and expanding of friendships and acquaintanceships can be unsettling and disorienting. This book provides a wise and reassuring guide to the seeming chaos, offering insightful and gentle advice on how to make new friends, maintain old friendships, get along and work well with new classmates, and confront the end of friendships that no longer work with compassion and empathy. Full of useful strategies for spotting and dealing potentially toxic friendships, "bad crowds," and bullies, this book provides all the tools a young person needs to surround him or herself with kind, dynamic, engaged, and mutually supportive and nurturing friends-for-life.

    Gr 5-8-This timely series, complete with up-to-date photos, aims to calm the fears of incoming and current students. Peer Group and Bullies go into depth about navigating the treacherous waters of middle-school social circles. While Peer Groups mentions bullying, it focuses mainly on making smart choices about friends, in social networking, in attending parties, and more. A poignant section in Bullies addresses "bullycide," incidents where students are bullied to the point that they try to end their lives. New School provides excellent advice on everything from selecting electives to choosing friends. Tests provides insight into developing effective study habits, including examples of how to take notes; and explains how to get help from teachers, parents, friends, and other resources. The texts are targeted at kids but would also be good resources for parents or caregivers looking for advice. Teachers might want to use these books as examples of informational texts for students to navigate and analyze. Relevant, smart choices for school and public libraries.-Sarah Knutson, American Canyon Middle School, CA
