FRIENDS, ENEMIES, PRINCES, AND ALIENS: JUST ANOTHER DAY IN MIDDLE SCHOOL
Eighth grade starts out the same as every other year for Breeze Brannigan. She’s still the tallest student, boy or girl, in her class, wears shoes that would fit an elephant, and her smile reveals dazzling braces that blind everyone within ten feet. Then she meets Cam, the new boy in school who speaks with an accent and must be from another planet, for none of the earthling boys she knows are so polite. He also has a secret, a secret that could mean life or death for Cam and his mother and that Breeze must help him keep.

“Just Breeze is a fun read about the peril of middle school. It covers the territory quite completely with the struggle to fit in, annoying parents, even more annoying siblings, and the search for true love. Author Beverly Stowe McClure brings Breeze to life for the enjoyment of middle grade readers everywhere.”

“This is a great book for a tween or early teen ager. I think every girl should have a book that she identifies with like this, and Just Breeze is one of those kinds of books. Good kids dealing with every day struggles of growing up. If I had a teenaged daughter, this is a book I would get for her.”
