Knowledge Is Power

Knowledge Is Power

by Anne Mazer

Abby can't believe it — sixth grade is about to begin! At first, she's excited. Being in sixth grade means moving up to middle school, having different teachers for each subject, and meeting new friends from other elementary schools.

Then Abby receives "An Insider's Guide to Sixth Grade." It's all about the negative things Abby can expect — boy-crazy friends, dating, moodiness, mean teachers, boy-girl parties, and more. Abby doesn't think she's ready for so many changes at once. When sixth grade starts, Abby realizes that some things (and people) are different, but so is she.
