E-Book Review: Lucy and CeCee’s How to Survive (and Thrive) in Middle School by Kimberly Dana

If you’re afraid of making that scary transition from elementary to middle school, then check out Lucy and CeCee’s How to Survive (and Thrive) in Middle School by Kimberly Dana to learn the ropes. Kidzworld has the e-book review.

How-To

BFFs Lucy Pringle (a wannabe popular girl) and CeCee Cruz (a Lord of the Rings-obsessed brainiac) have put together an entire book on how to survive the struggles of middle school. In each chapter, they give advice on a new topic, including teachers, school work, fashion, dating, friendships and gossip. Their tips are definitely worth noting. There’s only one problem: Lucy and CeCee don’t follow their own advice!

Struggles

Throughout their 7th grade school year, they’re faced with many different trials. Lucy crushes on Josh Land, who’s dating the most popular girl in school. Meanwhile, her mom humiliates her by trying to get uniforms put into the school. CeCee gets her first BF, much to Lucy’s dismay. She also puts so much pressure on herself to get straight As that she develops an eating disorder.

A Falling Out

As the year progresses, the BFFs have a falling out over minor things, like CeCee’s invitation to miss popular Kandi Klass’s birthday sleepover. But jealousy and petty differences can be overcome, especially when it comes to the strong bond of BFFs. Or can they?

The Bottom Line

Half how-to book, half duel diary, Lucy and CeCee’s How to Survive (and Thrive) in Middle School will give you a great snapshot of a typical middle school experience. The book is riddled with countless different fonts, which gets a little overwhelming at times, but also adds some pizzazz. It provides other cool segments as well, including “Interesting Factoids,” “Horoscopes,” and “Lingo Lessons,” which defines various tween slang phrases, such as pencil beggar, grade grubber and gossipfy. If you’re looking for the ultimate tween book, this is it!
