We know your knees will be shakin’ as you walk to your
classes through a sea of new faces. But before cracking open your textbooks,
try flipping through the pages of some good ol’ familiar reads riddled with
advice for surviving in a new school.
Worst Enemies/Best Friends (Book #1 of the Beacon Street Girls Series)
by Annie Bryant
If just the thought of being the new girl has you
working up a sweat, imagine having to do it several times like Charlotte, who
has traveled all across the world. This year, she’s starting junior high in
Boston and is put in a group for a class project—major groan. These girls seem
awful, and she immediately starts to dread the coming school year. But as the
year progresses, she finds they may have more in common than she first thought.
Grab the book here!
Anna and the French Kiss
by Stephanie Perkins
Anna is about to begin her senior year of high school and all seems to be right with the world—that is until her father ships her off to a boarding school in Paris. Spending a year abroad is every girl’s dream, right? Wrong. Anna has to leave her besties, her job and the cutie she’s crushin’ on just as things were falling into place. Now she has to deal with everything from a new language to new boys (especially hottie, Etienne).
by Meg Cabot
It’s totes normal to think your new school is wacky,
but what if you realized everyone was actually a reincarnation of a mythical
character? When Ellie moves from Minnesota to Maryland and finds herself mixed
up with the cool kids, she discovers just that: the lives of her newfound
friends are mimicking those of royalty in the legend of King Arthur.
Coincidence? She thinks not. Will Ellie be able to save her friends from a fate
that would leave them all dead?
by Curtis Sittenfield
Lee won a scholarship to attend a fancy boarding
school. The brochure shows a picture-perf campus with cute guys and athletic
girls, all eagerly attending classes. Much to her surprise, when Lee arrives at
school, everyone is rich and snobby and wants nothing to do with her. Uh-oh.
Did Lee just make a huge mistake?
What Happened to Goodbye
by Sarah Dessen
In the past two years, Mclean has moved four times. Every
time she’s in a new town, she creates a whole new identity for herself. Except
this time, she accidentally lets slip her true identity. What makes this town
different? Mclean’s new life in Lakeview is full of surprises, self-discovery
and new hope.
