Not Much Just Chillin': The Hidden Lives of Middle Schoolers Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Suddenly they go from striving for As to barely passing, from fretting about cooties to obsessing for hours about crushes. Former chatterboxes answer in monosyllables; freethinkers mimic everything from clothes to opinions. Their bodies and psyches morph through the most radical changes since infancy. They are kids in the middle-school years, the age every adult remembers well enough to dread.

Here at last is an up-to-date anthropology of this critically formative period. Prize-winning education reporter Linda Perlstein spent a year immersed in the lunchroom, classrooms, hearts, and minds of a group of suburban Maryland middle schoolers and emerged with this pathbreaking account. Perlstein reveals whats really going on under kids dont-touch-me facade while they grapple with schoolwork, puberty, romance, and identity. A must-read for parents and educators, Not Much Just Chillin offers a trail map to the baffling no-mans-land between child and teen.

Synopsis:

Traversing the school year and following five representative kids, Linda Perlstein spent nine months immersed in the lives of suburban Maryland middle schoolers and emerged with this pathbreaking account, offering insight into the hormone-charged and little-understood world of pre-teens.
