I saw that you liked SLOB, so I checked it out...not bad...but it didn't really "catch me" (sorry!) One of my (and my students) favorite books is Sixth-Grade Glommers, Norks, and Me by Lisa Papademetriou. It really is a great book for beggining Middle School kids. It emphasizes how family is always there for you and how both you and your friendships will change during Middle School...yet the change can be good. The kids love the book...it speaks about the changes in Middle School...but its "lite" and fun.
