It's a simple fact: being the ''new kid'' in school is a challenge. You have to leave your old home and say goodbye to old friends, then you have to navigate your way around a new school and make new friends. When you're in high school, it can be especially hard. Still, it's not all bad--at least, it doesn't have to be. Tilton knows what it's like to move around. She attended eight different schools--three elementary, two junior highs, and three senior highs. She made plenty of ''new kid'' mistakes ... but you don't have to. In 10 Dos & Don'ts When You're the New Kid: A survival guide for teens starting at a new school, Tilton's helpful hints and suggestions will guide you through those awkward first days (or sure, maybe a couple weeks) of feeling that everybody knows and likes everyone else--except you. With warmth, humor and more than a little excellent advice, this is a concise and easy-to-reference volume that will have you feeling better about your new situation from the very first page.
