Stuck in the Middle

Stuck in the Middle is a graphic novel collection of seventeen comics for and about middle school. Edited by Ariel Schrag, this compilation includes accurate, funny, and touching reminiscence of such diverse topics as popularity, changing school, bullies, anxiety, and middle school cliques. Individual stories vary in length and style, some conform to a more traditional comic book presentation while others utilize a free style graphical approach. Each is classically rendered in black, white, and gray tones, suitable and appropriate for the topic at hand. As the foreward suggests:

"Let's face it: thirteen is an unpleasant age. But that doesn't mean you can't laugh about it, whether you're sill dealing with the issues in the book or are far beyond the. Mistery loves company, so start reading."

Truer words ... Young or old(er), anyone reading this will find one story that resonates of their own youthful indescretions. For more information on Stuck in the Middle, check out Ariel Schrags website/blog.
