Even for the nerves-of-steel creators of the Worst-Case Scenario Handbooks, there is a place so dangerous, frightening, and fraught with pitfalls that few ever want to return there. What is this awful place? Middle School! But it doesn’t have to be that way. Inside are practical instructions to help you: • climb a mountain of homework • rescue a sinking grade • survive a crush • rise above a wardrobe malfunction • safely face down a bully …and much more, including 2 special, top-secret chapters: FOR GIRLS ONLY and FOR BOYS ONLY. Illustrations by Chuck Gonzales; Chuck Gonzales is a New York City–based illustrator. He’s no stranger to Worst Cases, having illustrated all the Junior Editions in this series.
