    DONNA GEPHART is the author of As If Being 12 3/4 Isn't Bad Enough, My Mother is Running For President. She lives in Jupiter, Florida, with her family.

    Eleven-year-old David Greenberg dreams of becoming a TV superstar like his idol, Jon Stewart. But in real life, David is just another kid terrified of starting his first year at Harman Middle School. With a wacky sense of humor and hilarious Top 6½ Lists, David spends his free time making TalkTime videos, which he posts on YouTube.
    But when David and his best friend have a fight, David is lucky enough to make a pretty cool new friend, Sophie—who just (gulp) happens to be a girl. Sophie thinks David's videos are hilarious, and she starts sending out the links to everyone she knows. Sophie's friends tell their friends, and before David knows it, thousands of people are viewing his videos—including some of the last people he would have expected.

    Praise for How to Survive Middle School

    "Gephart maps the hormonal, emotionally torturous terrain of pubescent boyhood with realistic dialogue, well-developed secondary characters and age-appropriate humor and insight, placing this title in the same august league as Jordan Sonnenblick’s Girls, Drums and Dangerous Pie."--Kirkus, starred.

    With short chapters and broad humor, this one is for "Wimpy Kid" aficionados."--School Library Journal, starred.

    "A deft balance of clever humor and poignant drama makes for an engaging and thoroughly enjoyable coming-of-age story, one to which many young readers, particularly boys, will find themselves relating . . . excellent cast of supporting characters . . . there are enough laughs, tears and additional contributions from a camera-loving hamster here to make this one appeal to Diary of a Wimpy Kid fans."--The Bulletin of the Center for Childern's Books

    "Gephart crafts for her likable protagonist an engaging, feel-good transition into adolescence that’s well stocked with tears and laughter."--Booklist

    "This funny, tender novel . . . is relatable and compulsively readable."--Publisher's Weekly
