Surviving Junior High Vol. 2 is a great book for any child aged 10+ who needs a boost in self-esteem. It focuses on school, and how to think positively. The format of the book is light and effective, with true stories on trials and tribulations the author went through in her teenage years. As well as the stories, which are told in a humourous way, the book includes sections on how to overcome pessimism and radiate happiness. There are lots of cartoon illustrations to add to the happy tone, as well as quizzes and a personal journal to fill in about your journey to optimism.

Opinion: 

I really enjoyed this book. I felt it gave tweens/teens a great opportunity to boost their self confidence. The stories about the author's childhood are written in a jolly tone, but also give children something to relate to, as the stories are very realistic. I also enjoyed the quizzes because they led to advice on how to boost your positivity. The overall message is "don't worry, be happy," and Surviving Junior High Vol. 2 was a great energy-boosting read! I would recommend this book to any child aged 10+ who is looking for a self-esteem boost.
