The transition from elementary school to middle school can be tough on kids, but one young author is making it a little easier with her latest book.
Marrae Kimball, an eighth-grade student who has already written two books, has just released her third, titled “The Secret Combination to Middle School: Real Advice from Real Kids, Ideas for Success, and Much More!” The juvenile nonfiction book gives students the tips and advice they need to make their middle school years great in terms of their grades, social life and extracurricular activities.
“Going from elementary school to middle school isn’t easy, and I wanted to write a book that covered my experiences and what I found helpful as I made the transition,” said Kimball, who lives in Maine. “I know what it’s like to start your first day in middle school, including the combination of excitement and nervousness. I want kids to know that this doesn’t have to be a frightening time, but rather a chance to become more mature and make new friends that may last your entire lifetime.”
In “The Secret Combination to Middle School,” readers learn that almost all kids are uneasy about attending a new school. It outlines the major differences between elementary and middle school, including what students should expect and how they can become more organized and responsible. Perhaps most importantly, Kimball encourages readers to be prepared while remembering to have fun and maintain a positive attitude.
The book also features real advice from a number of middle school students who have successfully made the transition, detailing what their biggest fears were, what they like best about their new school and the opportunities available to them now that were not there in elementary school.
“I’m very proud of Marrae and the effort she has put into this book,” said Melissa Eshleman, Marrae’s mother and the founder of Find Your Way Publishing, Inc. “This book is a must-have for students making the move into middle school or junior high school. Rather than just hearing from teachers, parents and other adults, this book gives the real, honest perspectives of kids who are in their own age group and who have faced the same challenges.”
Marrae, who is an honor student, is also the author of “Guaranteed Success for Kindergarten: 50 Easy Things You Can Do Today!” and “Guaranteed Success for Grade School: 50 Easy Things You Can Do Today!” She has received national attention for her previous publications.
“The Secret Combination to Middle School; Real Advice from Real Kids, Ideas for Success, and Much More!” is available through Find Your Way Publishing, Inc., Amazon.com, BarnesandNoble.com and other channels. To learn more, visit http://www.findyourwaypublishing.com/.
