Callie's Rules for Things to Do in Middle School:

Have lots of pictures in your phone.
Get a phone.
Callie Jones is excited about her first day of sixth grade, but from the moment she arrives and is greeted by dirty looks (apparently, you don t ride your bike to middle school), she realizes that there are a set of unwritten rules that everyone seems to know everyone except her. So Callie decides she ll write a list of the rules, and she ll never go wrong again.
At home, Callie's close-knit family is making big Halloween plans, until the parents of snotty Valeri Van Dine convince the Town Council to cancel Halloween and replace it with Autumn Fest, a celebration of wholesome American values.
Callie doesn t think their arguments make much sense, and the Council keeps making rules so they don t have to listen. So Callie decides it's time to make some rules of her own.
Ages 8 12
Wait until you meet Callie and her family. They're warm and appealing, but mostly they're unusual. They standup for what they believe in, no matter what I loved them all, even the dragon
