Description:

Suddenly they go from striving for A’s to barely passing, from fretting about cooties to obsessing for hours about crushes. Former chatterboxes answer in monosyllables; freethinkers mimic everything from clothes to opinions. Their bodies and psyches morph through the most radical changes since infancy. They are kids in the middle-school years, the age every adult remembers well enough to dread. Here at last is an up-to-date anthropology of this critically formative period. Prize-winning education reporter Linda Perlstein spent a year immersed in the lunchroom, classrooms, hearts, and minds of a group of suburban Maryland middle schoolers and emerged with this pathbreaking account. Perlstein reveals what’s really going on under kids’ don’t-touch-me facade while they grapple with schoolwork, puberty, romance, and identity. A must-read for parents and educators, Not Much Just Chillin’ offers a trail map to the baffling no-man’s-land between child and teen.

Prologue: at least they can't shove me in
I can't believe the day's almost over
Everyone else thinks it's a stupid plane crash
Any girl will obsess over at least 1 guy in their life
Stop! don't touch! get Out!
I'm scary enough as it is
There's always next quarter
It's not you it's me
I can't make her do anything
I barely ever have a chance to make fun of anyone
But what does this actually have to do with real life?
Purple, is that close enough?
I don't care about the snack pass
Not much just chillin'
It's the jackie show!
I'm not that curious anyone
I love yo more than words can say
Sometimes I wanna say stuff, but I don't wanna say stuff
Another survivor of the woods
She started humping me! and I was like :-O
Now you have the persentage of your love
She's lost to us
This is the most I ever typed in one day!
Why do people always take sex as a play thing?
There's nothing to be scared of in middle school
Epilogue: You get good at something and then you move on
