Product Description

✭ “My 11-year-old daughter, who starts middle school in the fall... gave the app an enthusiastic ‘pretty cool!!’”—CNET
✭ “This book is really exceptional. It’s fun, hip and something youth will relate to.”—Digital Storytime

Middle school can be a serious pain with bullies putting you down, blowups threatening friendships, and real doubts about how you measure up. Good thing you don’t have to go it alone! Meet Mateo, Michelle and their friends—six teens trying to figure out what middle school’s all about. Follow their adventures and watch as they learn how to get along in middle school.

Be Confident is based on Book 1 of the award-winning Middle School Confidential™ series written by teen expert Annie Fox, illustrated by Matt Kindt, and published by Free Spirit Publishing. This graphic novel app enables readers to zoom right into the story world. With beautiful full-color illustrations and richly layered audio made up of movie-like sound effects and music, Be Confident will be a sure-fire hit with 8-14 year olds. (Even those who don’t like to read!) As a bonus for parents and teachers, this app puts thought-provoking entertainment and solutions into the hands of teens who deal with these personal issues every day. It’s likely to challenge teens to think about their emotions and behavior in new ways and encourage them to make more respectful, cooperative choices at school and at home.
