Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

With multiple starred reviews, don't miss this humorous, poignant, and original contemporary story about bullying, broken friendships, social media, and the failures of communication between kids. From John David Anderson, author of the acclaimed Ms. Bixby's Last Day.

In middle school, words aren't just words. They can be weapons. They can be gifts. The right words can win you friends or make you enemies. They can come back to haunt you. Sometimes they can change things forever.

When cell phones are banned at Branton Middle School, Frost and his friends Deedee, Wolf, and Bench come up with a new way to communicate: leaving sticky notes for each other all around the school. It catches on, and soon all the kids in school are leaving notes--though for every kind and friendly one, there is a cutting and cruel one as well.

In the middle of this, a new girl named Rose arrives at school and sits at Frost's lunch table. Rose is not like anyone else at Branton Middle School, and it's clear that the close circle of friends Frost has made for himself won't easily hold another. As the sticky-note war escalates, and the pressure to choose sides mounts, Frost soon realizes that after this year, nothing will ever be the same.

   Best modern book on middle school I've read
He was on restriction, and the deal was that we would read this together and discuss it before he could go out, Mr. Rule told the judge. There were no heroes here, but the core group of friends was well developed. It tackled bullying, overuse of technology, failure of middle school advisors to address problem kids, divorce and the changing nature of friendship that middle school brings. It was moving for me as an adult and my son was fully invested in it as well. It lead to some really meaningful discussions, said Blair. The customer service was excellent, and the product was highly recommended.
   Great Middle Grade Book
Cell phones have been banned at Branton Middle School so Frost, Deedee, Wolf and Bench along with the rest of the students are forced to come up with a new way to communicate. Frost and his friends begin posting sticky notes on each other's lockers to try and squash the new rule. As everyone begins posting notes on each other's lockers, a war begins. Frost finds his group beginning to splinter as the school's new girl tries to make her way in. I've read all the books, but this was by far the best. I think that this is a book that should be in every single middle school classroom. John David Anderson did a great job of showing all the feelings and emotions that kids have around middle school and transition, said Blair. This book will be in my classroom for years to come.
   Coming of age... That's life
It was my 12 year old granddaughter who read it. She had to read one chapter of the book in seventh grade. What a great, enjoyable, lesson-filled book filled with exact things my gd has seen and experienced herself, Morgenthau said.
   A great middle school read!
The book's witty, irreverent and often irreverent characters made me want to read more. Then there was this group of middle school kids that somehow fit until Rose came along and disrupted the flow. And, because Rose was the glue, the two ended up together. Complicated by the fact that middle school is not always easy, Heather turns to her friends and asks them all sorts of questions: "What are you made of who you are?" I'm ready to take on more books by this author, Morgenthau said.
   Good story
A middle schooler is suspected of killing a sixth-grade girl. The show follows the dynamic of a group of kids who find their tribe of close friends changing due to a series of unfortunate events. An excellent read, said Pauley, assistant professor of English at the University of Nottingham. One comment I get is that these kids seem older and more mature than the middle school kids who I know.
   A PostIt Note Filled with Insight
In "The Road," Simon and Nicholas explore the rocky road of adolescence. Giving away too many details would give away a powerfully written story that deserves to be read from beginning to end without knowing what's going to happen next. If you know a middle school student, or are one yourself, this is a must read.
I may never see it use another one, Lord Blackwood said. So much drama, so many different characters and personalities, he said. Great story, well-written. As a preschool teacher, I am sad to say I witness bullying at a very young age, nearly every day. I hate to think what it would be like to be in a classroom 20 years from now. Young readers, too, should enjoy this book. I'm 69. The book explores this very important issue in a unique way. Will you think what should, could, and perhaps most importantly, would i do with the money?
   Read this book!
Even in the best of times, growing up is hard. It's just that you have to let go, ducking bullies, learning to let go, embracing change. In the book, we are reminded that our words can hurt and heal, and we must choose them wisely.
   We both LOVED it!
We're thrilled we found them, Mr. and Mrs. Booher." If you are a middle schooler, I would encourage you to read this book. The Powers That Be are determined to find and kill Geller, Taylor and Bruno, but also reveal the real story of friendship, bullying and the power of words. It is a combination of comedy at times, and pathos at others. Still, it's a great read.
   Too long for targeted audience ☹️
Anderson captures middle school voice so well, but sadly the length of his books will turn off many of the readers who are probably his target audience. I thought the same with his first book, I find myself struggling to finish even though I enjoy the story. Please, keep writing, but please, shave 100 pages off of the finished product so you appeal to a broader audience!
