Joe Pinsker, Hannah Shr, Carolyn Hou, Maxfield Peterson
Subtitled Getting Through Freshman Year of High School, Been There, Survived That is a how-to manual for the student just entering high school. Written by four teenagers who were once freshmen themselves, the ninety-six page pamphlet is divided into three sections: Social Advice, Academic Advice, and Practical Advice. Quoted from page 5, “It includes tips on everything from how to deal with failure and survive group projects to how to make up good excuses for teachers and fake sick days.” Humorous and captivating, the manual is very easy to read. The new high school student will find it very helpful, as it will contribute to his/her ease of adjustment.
