The Worst Case Scenario
Survival Handbook: Middle School
By David Borgenicht, Ben H. Winters, and Robin Epstein
This book is everything a new middle schooler will need! It has tips from wardrobe emergencies to being the shortest guy in school to having your sibling attending school with you to surviving horrible haircuts! There are also super-helpful hints, like how to organize your backpack, study for tests, and survive the school dance. One of the most important things in Middle School is your locker. This is used for keeping those all important, extra in-case-of-emergency clothes and shoes, hygienic products, Chap-stick/lip gloss, and books for class. I really enjoyed the tips on how to keep your backpack and locker clean, and the tips for stopping bullies and cheaters were really good! This is a book every soon-to-be middle schooler should have.
