But, last night I started reading Stuck in the Middle: 17 Comics from an Unpleasant Age edited by Ariel Schrag. The book features short vignettes about life in middle school or junior high, as some people still refer to those grades between 6th and 8th. For some people, it's torturous. Others, not so much. (In fact, the friend who called me last night, when I told him what I was reading, he shuddered audibly over the phone because, apparently, his middle school years were hellish.)

Personally, I don't recall middle school as being too bad but I could relate to some of these stories. Kids at that age can be so mean to each other! And the embarrassment of puberty is just too much for some kids to take, I think.
