Middle School Is Worse Than Meatloaf: A Year Told Through Stuff by Jennifer L Holm
Middle School Is Worse Than Meatloaf: A Year Told Through Stuff

Megan Robertson, June 8, 2008

The dream book for a young adult who hates to read. Middle School is Worse than Meatloaf is a story told with no paragraphs and no dialog. Instead, it is told through the notes classed in pass, copies of her schedule and bank statements, party invitations, IM chats - all the bits and pieces of a young seventh grade girl's life. The reader wades through these artifacts and journeys through the ups and downs of middle school. Readers will laugh out loud at the hilarious haikus she has written for her English teacher and empathize for Ginny as she deals with a rebellious older brother and an annoying younger brother. By wandering through the artifacts of Ginny's year, young adults will be able to relate to the identity mystery that Ginny travels through and realize they may survive middle school too - even if it is worse than meatloaf.
