"This is a must read for any parent sending a child to middle school. It captures the "pure" essence of adolescence. Having spent twenty-five years in the business as a middle school counselor and dealing with so many of the issues presented in this book, I found myself nodding my head throughout the entire book. The situations and suggestions were right on the money! The scenarios presented are very realistic and the advice given in very practical and it works. This book is one of the most comprehensive and well written books on middle schoolers that I have ever read. I can't wait to have this book published so I can recommend it to my parents."-Dedra H. Green Resource Guidance Counselor Montgomery County Public Schools
