Middle School - The Real Deal : From Cafeteria Food to Combination Locks
From Booklist, Copyright (c) American Library Association. Used with permission.
Written in the style of a breezy magazine piece, these two titles offer mostly commonsense advice about the academic, extracurricular, and social changes faced by students entering both schools. Occasionally, the text reveals irritating biases: Middle School warns in a discussion of foreign languages that because Spanish is rumored to be "the easiest language, the slackers may take over this class." But the book is helpful in covering increasingly difficult academic subjects, how to cope with different teachers' styles, and how to improve communication and establish trust with parents. High School includes disappointingly brief sections on college searches and social life. It's at its best giving overviews of standardized tests and hints for time management and choosing extracurricular activities. Formatted in choppy, occasionally hard-to-read text boxes, these aren't necessary purchases, but the sporadic helpful tips make for decent browsing material. --Gillian Engberg
