These lessons are great for teens trying to fit in and learn about themselves. The stories are also presented in a way that teens can relate to them as something similar happening to them or a friend. I don't have middle school aged kids, but I can use these stories to start a discussion with my little ones to make sure they will have self-confidence in themselves as they grow up. Highly recommended app!!!

The art is wonderful and it looks great on the iPad. The story is fresh and relatable for middle schoolers. But the thing that really makes it a good deal is all the care and polish that went into making this app. The sound effects and background noises bring the frames to life, really putting you in the story. It's well worth the purchase and I can't wait for the next book to come out later this year!

This graphic novel has tons of helpful information. It really helps! I find it hard to fit in. I've learned to like myself for who I am. Daniel, Age 12

I downloaded this book app under the recommendation of someone, and found it to be expertly created, easy to understand and fun to navigate through. Especially when you double-tap on any of the "comic boxes" (for lack of a better term), it provides you with great nature-based atmospheric sound effects that can be heard very clearly. In some segments, there are children's "grunts" or children's vocalizing frustration, which is one very important teaching point for children. The author is also a highly regarded educator in the field of building confidence in "tweens" and teens, and is also well known for her involvement in the "Anti-bullying" movement. WELL DONE!!

The Middle School Confidential app is a collection of stories presented in a graphic novel/comic book format, with appropriate sound effects and music playing in the background. Issues like bullying, self-esteem, body image and fitting in are handled in a sensitive but authentic way with no condescension. The characters are a group of friends in middle school, and the story follows their interactions with each other. The situations shown in the app rang true to me, and the artwork should appeal to tweens/early teens. At the end of each chapter the main point is repeated, but somehow an appropriate balance is achieved, so it never seems heavy-handed. This app is the first in a series, and if the next installments are as good as the first, I’d recommend Middle School Confidential as a great resource for both kids and their parents.

This book covered some important topics. It was fun to read. It talked about everyday life for teens and pre-teens.

Maybe ask them to evaluate it for you: "Is this any good?" Funny and looks at lots of ways that kids can undermine or support each other and themselves. Sketchy, lively artwork.

Occupational Therapist's Review of Be Confident In Who You AreReviewed on 12/13/18 12:01 PM
As an occupational therapist who works with students who have difficulty with self esteem and issues relating to peers, this comic strip style book is great as a social skills conversation starter. Easy to read, helpful and relevant!
