In Stuck in the Middle (of Middle School) by Karen Romano Young, Doreen and her family had to move because of her once she got kicked out of school. She’s vowed to make her new middle school work for her, but it’s still a challenge, given her ADHD, her younger sister’s growing popularity, and tensions between her parents, as they all adjust to a new city and new jobs. Add to that a lot of homework, a talent show, and her first [gulp!] school dance, and you’ll agree that Doreen needs to work extra hard to stay focused. Good thing she has her doodle-journal!
