That's what Annabelle discovers on her first day in her brand-new life. Birchwood Middle School is totally different from her old all-girls elementary. In fact, lots of things in Annabelle's life are totally different now that she's back from summer camp. There's mom's new boyfriend, a new house, new friends — even a new puppy that likes to chew on Annabelle's clothes. Well, at least the puppy comes with a leash and a training manual! If only she could say the same for the boys... Featuring Annabelle's hilarious take on friendship, boys, and her all-new life, this novel-slash-survival guide perfectly captures the joy - and agony — of junior high school. And it might just teach you how to tame the wildest beast of all: the teenage boy.
