Read full description of the books Be Confident in Who You Are:“Hey. We go to Milldale Middle School. We’re very different in lots of ways, but we’re all good friends. A couple months ago, we were just hanging out when these kids came over . . .”
So begins the journey of Jack, Jen, Chris, Abby, Mateo, and Michelle—six students just trying to figure it all out in middle school. Be Confident in Who You Are, the first book in the new Middle School Confidential series, follows these characters as they work to meet new challenges and survive the social scene—without losing sight of who they are. The book offers insider information on common middle school concerns and practical advice for being healthy, feeling good about who you are, and staying in control of your feelings and actions—even when the pressure is on. Filled with character narratives, quizzes, quotes from real kids, tips, tools, and resources, this book is a timely and engaging survival guide for the middle school years.
Read information about the authorWhen Annie Fox's first book People Are Like Lollipops (Holiday House) was published, she wasn't old enough to legally sign the contract! By the time she turned 21, though, she decided that helping kids would be her life's work. After graduating from Cornell University with a degree in Human Development and Family Studies then completing her Master's in Education, she began exploring ways to use technology to entertain kids while building their emotional intelligence skills.
In 1977, Annie and her husband David opened Marin Computer Center, the world's first public access microcomputer facility. Her work there led her to write her best selling book, Armchair BASIC (Osborn/McGraw-Hill). After a detour into the world of screen writing, Annie returned to computers as an award-winning writer/designer of children's CD-ROMs. (Putt-Putt; Madeline; Get Ready for School, Charlie Brown; and Mr. Potato Head Saves Veggie Valley are just a few of the titles on which she worked.)
At the dawn of the Internet age, Annie dreamed up the idea for The InSite (TheInSite.org), a place "for teens and young adults to turn their world around." She is the creator, co-designer, writer, and executive producer of that award-winning site. One of The InSite's most popular features is Hey Terra, a Cyberspace Dear Abby. Annie's first book for teens, The Teen Survival Guide to Dating Relating Real World Advice About Guys Girls Growing Up And Getting Along (2000, 2005 Free Spirit Publishing), is based on hundreds of emails to Terra and Annie's responses to them. "Teen Survival Guide" is now available as a free PDF download from TeenSurvivalGuide.com.
