This is an excellent book. The author of the book, Linda Elkin, did a great job of using the characters to explain how to survive middle school. As a middle schooler myself, I could really relate to the characters and the challenges they faced. Using Gaby and Lily, the author gives great examples on how to handle multiple problems. I would recommend this book to all middle school girls. It's encouraging and will make you feel differently about middle school.
