I'm going to 8th grade. Middle school is not a big deal. My piece of advice is don't do anything rash or too out there. Be yourself but nobody likes a total freak. One of my friens announced she was bisexual and lost 75% of her friends. She actually isn't she just did it to shock people. So don't do stuff like that.

Aaah. Middle school. Glad to get out of that cage. Oh wait. I still have a couple years to go. Awwws. Wish me luck.

Middle school is seriously not as big as movies and others make it. Its just school, make friends, do your homework and be awesome. nuff said

this book looks cool!! im gonna be in middle school next year so this is really cool!!
by zebrachic45 on 3/2/2012 6:28:18 PM
i would get it, but i have one more year till middle school, but some stuff in there could be helpful for right now.... and it would be helpful for when i DO get to middle school. my BFF is in middle school (6th grade ) so she could borrow it or we could read it together and share our thought with stuff in there like we already do, like about crushes, school being to hard,talent show worries ( i got in and had them, after a talk, fears nomore! ) and stuff like that, so maybe it would be a good idea to get it....

If anyone is still nervous about starting high school, check out my blog and subscribe. I started it to help girls starting freshman year. If you ask some specific questions, I'll write you a blog post too. (:
Honestly, the most important thing to remember is to join clubs and activities that you're interested in. That way it's easier to make friends who share your interests. (: Good luck!

Okay so they is a guy and we use to go out but that when we were 10 and stuff, and i'm only 13. So i see him at the pool the other day and he looks really cute now, idk how to give my number to him ... but i do know his parents really well. The thing is that i don't want to have another crush ... WHAT SHOULD I DO????
Hey chica! I'd talk to him first and become friends with him again. That way, you can ease into it, rather than jumping right in. And once you're friends, who knows what may happen! Just start off by saying hi to him when you see him. Then, casually ask how his weekend was, or his summer, to get the conversation flowing.

Don't worry about Middle School because later in life it won't really matter. Just try to get the best grades and have the best time with yours friends. Don't fight, don't waste your time, because you never know when it's all going to end.
by CaliforniaGurlie<3 on 12/18/2010 9:56:01 PM
My mom is a middle school teacher so I am at a school with her, none of my older friends are with me. But I fit in so much better with my new friends. My parents are divorced half my friend's are too. I am still really wanting this book.
by rissa99 on 12/12/2010 9:20:43 PM
i thought middle school, overall, was tough. boy was i WRONG! 7th and 8th grade were actually really easy and went by SO fast. i'm a freshman now. i have tons of work everyday. i barely have time to breathe between homework and having a life. its alright though. all they need to do is right a book like that for highschool...

Middle school is alright. just really pay attention in school and make homework and studying your first priorody and it will be easy!
by abercrombiekidsgirl on 11/27/2010 3:48:08 PM
middle school can be hard or easy depending on how you put it:
its hard 2 flow with your friends,boys,school, and sports. here are little tips
grades are so important so study and never be afraid to ask questions!
your changing and all your friends are to. dont be dissapointed if all of your friends act different.this is when you know who your real friends are. so dont be 2 sad that a friendship didnt last forever.its ok because there are full of different people.
guys are alyways so counfusing! if you like someone tell them. as taylor swift says....speak now or forever hold your peace! its ok to also be friends with a guy.theres nothing wrong about that. just never let life discourage you and 1 final tip...... be youseld and alyways smile... u never know who may be falling in love with it
by clairebear5698 on 11/23/2010 6:10:49 PM
Midddle school major tip!!!!! dont cry ull be the school crybaby only cry if something tragic happend!! and ppl talk about you pretend you dont care watch it stop, if it doesnt confront, they dont stop tell a teacher to keep an eye out not to interfere. usually works!
by littlelostleftbehind on 11/20/2010 12:15:06 AM
In my school, Middle School was easy. i am so bored in some classes that I ready a book. But the reason people tell be why that is is because I read at a college level when I am in 6th grade. My mom is looking into bumping me into 7th grade. i don't really care, but the one thing that is bad about that is that there are these girls that yell at me for being so smart and I don't know what to do.

middle school can b cool if u just sort of hide
by mayanna on 10/14/2010 6:10:45 PM
middle school can b fun but it can also suck so i learned to just hang in there
by mayanna on 10/14/2010 6:08:07 PM
Middle school was difficult at first, it took me 3 days to figure out how to use a locker! I kept missing out on my lunch because of that! A few times I felt rushed to get to my next class but after a while I started to get the hang of it. Oh and tip, first impression especially in front of teachers always counts. If your teacher trusts you you're less likely to get into as much trouble as the other kids. Also kids tend to be mean in middle school don't let them get to you, trust me. And if you can't see the board very well let your teacher know, I should have. Middle school got easier and 8th grade was a blast! Good luck!
by Firecracker_3 on 10/13/2010 8:05:14 PM
I took a mods aadvise and i made a power point presentation about how much i would like to be homeschooled.... and it sort of worked... but my mom isnt quite sure about how much this would help my no friend situation... the thing is... nobody can replace my best friend who moved away... i feel like giving up... i want to be home schooled so bad...

Middle school isn't anything to be worried about. The only diffrence for me was no recess (don't worry you get over it fast) and switching classes. Boys start to gradually change so you'll be used to middle school when that happens.

Plus they have better food in middle school so I'm not compaining too much. I want to get straight A's for the third year in a row.

Well middle school was easy and I had lots of fun and my first year I had straight a's for 3 semesters. U just have to turn in all of your work and do what you are told to do and you'll make it. But I was struggling in 8th. I had a d in pe and a c in social studies but I had a's and B's in the rest of my classes. And at the end of the year I brought them all up. I had all a's and only 1 b. That was in math of course!!!
