Format: Paperback
Having reviewed The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook, as well as its Jr. Edition, it is high-time we looked at what bridges these two stages of life, Middle School! The trusty quad of authors and illustrator, David Borgenicht, Ben H. Winters, Robin Epstein, and Chuck Gonzales has created the number one reference manual for how to survive this stage of life.

Got questions on the school day, after school, and the social scene? This Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook is the only go-to guide that middle-school-ers are going to need.

Bonus chapters include "For Boys Only!" and "For Girls Only!" which would come in handy especially after a rougher sort of day. For example, boys can consult on topics such as: how to survive being the shortest guy in school, not being athletic, a bad haircut, a bully, or even dealing with girls.

Girls, as well, can consult this how-to manual regarding mean girls, a BFF breakup, bothersome boys, wardrobe emergencies, what to do when a clique shuts you out, and secrets that get out. The field guide to body language is an especially good resource to consider when wanting to tell someone to "back off" gracefully.

As expected, the appendix has super useful items like how to dance at a dance, how to pack a backpack, and how to face your face when it's not looking its best.

Having survived middle school, I can say that all the advice in here is good and indispensable! Buying The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook: Middle School is a necessity if you know anyone entering their first year of middle school or finishing up their last year.

I think this book expands on middle school issues and is informative. It addresses school situations with teachers, peers, homework, the locker room, grades, organization of school work, school dances, packing your backpack properly, social aspects of school, safety issues, and a section for boys only and girls only. It is an easy read for your middle school aged child. The book is organized and written in a fun manner. It is appropriate for a 6th grader since there is not a section on sex.

This helped me prepare for middle school and all of its challenges. Whenever something bad in school happened, I would read this and... all better! This book really captures middle school in all of its forms... happy, sad, scary... If you're scared about starting middle school (like I was before I read this), buy this book. It helped a lot.

This book is kinda good, but it only centers on main problems that girls can have and excludes boys. The book mainly talks about girl problems and only one chapter helps with boy problems. I find this not good. I do not recommend it.

I gave this to my son midway through his last year of elementary school. He is now halfway through his second year of middle school and he has read this book over and over! He read it a lot to help ease his mind a bit and prepare for middle school and it is now his go to guide when things come up. Must have for any new middle school students or soon to be middle school students!

This book has all the tips and tricks you need for middle school!
I recommend this book to any future 6th,7th, and 8th graders! It has tips for girls or boys, which is great as well.
This is also a great book to have around in your darkest middle school hours. Having being experienced to all of these pro's and con's of middle school, this book deserves a 5 star rating!
