Real Friends by Shannon Hale
[book cover]

Shannon and Adrienne have been best friends ever since they were little. Then one day, Adrienne starts hanging out with Jen, the most popular girl in class and the leader of a circle of friends called The Group.

Everyone in The Group wants to be Jen's #1, and some girls would do anything to stay on top, even if it means bullying others. Now every day is like a roller coaster for Shannon. Will she and Adrienne stay friends? Can she stand up for herself? Is she in The Group, or out?

Newbery Honor author Shannon Hale and New York Times bestselling illustrator LeUyen Pham join forces in this graphic memoir about how hard it is to find your real friends and why it's worth the journey.

Revenge of the Star Survivors by Michael Merschel
[book cover]

Middle school meets the Dark Side in this painfully funny survival story of social misfit Clark Sherman.

When Clark crash-lands on the inhospitable planet of Festus Middle School, he soon learns the natives don't take kindly to newcomers, particularly ones who practice Jedi mind tricks and follow nerdy TV shows like Star Survivors. As he faces a conspiring group of violent bullies, browbeaten teachers, and a fiendish principal, Clark knows he'll be lucky just to survive eighth grade.

Then, hope appears on the horizon: there is Les, the enigmatic boy who seems to disappear at will; Ricki, a fellow Star Survivors fan; and the independent-minded librarian, Ms. Beacon. When Clark and his newfound allies are imperiled, he gathers his courage and the consequences of his actions ripple through the galaxy in life-altering ways.
