Stuck in the Middle (of Middle School)Book
Forced to move to another school after her ADHD gets the best of her, Doreen resolves to do better despite her younger sister's growing popularity and mounting financial stresses at home, challenges she faithfully records in her doodle journal. By the author of Doodlebug.
Moving is tough. Being the new kid in school is even tougher. But the hardest thing of all about the move that Doreen "Dodo" Bussey's family is making is that she suspects it might be because of her. She got into trouble at her last school.
On the drive to their new home, her mother gives Dodo a blank notebook, which she uses to chronicle the move, the first days in a new city, and the ups and downs of starting a new school and making new friends. In the process, she reinvents herself as the Doodlebug. Her little sister seems to adjust to everything so easily—so why is it so hard for Dodo?
Moving to another school, Doreen hopes she can do better despite dealing with her ADHD, her younger sister's popularity, and mounting stress at home, and turns to her doodle journal to cope.
