Middle School Monday: Frazzled: Everyday Disasters and Impending Doom by Booki Vivat

Abbie Wu is not ready for middle school. She already knows that she hates thing that are “middles,” like sitting in the middle car seat in the car and being the middle kid in the family. But, this is shaping up to be the WORST middle yet.

To start with, every student is supposed to pick electives in subjects that they’re interested in. Her best friend Logan is excited for coding classes and her other best friend Maxine can’t wait for the theater classes to start. Abbie isn’t interested in any of the subjects that you can choose.

Instead, the only thing middle school seems like it has going for it is a fancier cafeteria than in elementary school. But, when she gets to her first lunch period, it turns out that only eighth graders get an upgraded lunch option. They even get a shorter lunch line. Sixth graders get the SAME LUNCHES AS BEFORE EXCEPT MAYBE COLDER BECAUSE THE LINE IS LONGER!!!

I don’t know about you, but I am very motivated by food and so is Abby. But how can she change the rules of a school she has barely started going to? Especially when she’s too hungry to think straight?
