_basketballgirl22_: but yeah it is pretty realistic
_CardinalAirLibra_: never read it
_fabchick_: What is it about? How I survived Middel School?
_summergroup_: but the spy stuff is cool!
_fabchick_: @basketballgirl22: should I read it?
_Dan-Cahill_ROCKS_: Spy stuff and middle school? I definitely gotta read this book!
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_: @summergroup: Are you talking about 39 Clues? No spy stuff in How I Survived Middle School...
_basketballgirl22_: If you like books about middle school i geuss...
_Dan-Cahill_ROCKS_: Or should I say..."ZooWee Mama!"
_FREELANCER37_: Is the 15 min up? Cause I only read that book.
_Sonja_Stacks_Staffer_: It is about the hilrious embarassing things that can happen to you in school.
_CardinalAirLibra_: that would be a good book idea though, spy stuff and middle school
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_: @summergroup: Or do you mean that sometimes the kids spy on each other? But not spies like in 39 Clues...
_basketballgirl22_: Its not really about spying at all really
_summergroup_: Sorry and yes. I thought it was supposed to be about the 39 clues
_FREELANCER37_: never read it.
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_: @CardinalAirLibra: You should write it!
_Dan-Cahill_ROCKS_: @Sonja_Stacks_Staffer Cool. But I think I experience that stuff enough at school...
_Sonja_Stacks_Staffer_: What is the most embarassing thing that ever happened to you in school?
_FREELANCER37_: I cry.
_penguin2009_: once i got paint all over my dress but i didn't notice until like 5 class periods later
_lionlily_: Sonja stacks staffer: Coming out of the locker romm with my shorts on backwards!
_Dan-Cahill_ROCKS_: The most embarassing moment? Um..... losing my glasses on the kickball field (shudders)
_Sonja_Stacks_Staffer_: @lionlily Ohh, did anyone see you?
_lionlily_: Yes, it was two years ago, and everone still remembers it!
_CardinalAirLibra_: thanks_Karen_Stacks_Staffer, my teacher takes my writing journal at the end of the day to read my work.......... strange
_Dan-Cahill_ROCKS_: @_CardinalAirLibra: LOL!
Once I went up on stage to get an award and everyone who got the award ahead of me stood up on stage until everyone was called. But then for
my award, I was the first one to get it and so I stood up there and I thought everyone else would stand there too, but then no one did! So
then I just went and sat down. That was really embarrassing but all my friends were nice about it after.
_boxer4356_: I forgot to put on clothes. JK! I've got nothing for ya.
_FREELANCER37_: Did they?
_Dan-Cahill_ROCKS_: ---akward silence---
_Sonja_Stacks_Staffer_: Anyone have anything else about How I Survived Middle School
_boxer4356_: GTG! I got homework!
_Sonja_Stacks_Staffer_: If not let's move on to the Tale of Despereaux.
_Karen_Stacks_Staffer_: @Dan-Cahill_ROCKS: I guess that's what happens when everyone bares their souls and shares truly humiliating stories...
_basketballgirl22_: i guess not......
_Sonja_Stacks_Staffer_: I LOVED this book!
_summergroup_: You're funny1
_CardinalAirLibra_: i'm just listening so keep taliking because I read fast (cindof)
_Dan-Cahill_ROCKS_: I probably need to read it to learn how to survive it...
_Dan-Cahill_ROCKS_: @_Karen_Stacks_Staffer: LOL
_fabchick_: I read Tale of Despereaux!
_CardinalAirLibra_: My teacher read that book to us in 4th grade
_Sonja_Stacks_Staffer_: Did anyone see the movie?
_fabchick_: No, I didn't
_fabchick_: Was the movie good?
_lionlily_: Yes! Not as good as the book though!
_Dan-Cahill_ROCKS_: I did not see it. I wish I did, though
_penguin2009_: hermione is in the movie right
_Sonja_Stacks_Staffer_: Yes, the actress who plays Hermione is the voice of Princess Pea.
_Sonja_Stacks_Staffer_: @lionlily Why are books always so much better than the movie?
_Dan-Cahill_ROCKS_: My family doesn't know if the movie will be worth seeing it...
_basketballgirl22_: I GTG see ya people!

_lionlily_: Sonja_Stacks_Staffer: Maybe because they let you imagine so much more.
_Dan-Cahill_ROCKS_: Because books are movies in your head? What's better than a movie in your head?
_Dan-Cahill_ROCKS_: Oops, I meant to put a "!" after I said "Books are movies in your head
