SummaryAdd a Summary
Rachel Buchholz’s tips and advice to teens and preteens will prepare them to “survive” many situations, such as: mean teachers, embarrassing parents, bullies and cyberbullies, being the new kid at school, surprise quizzes, exams, embarrassing mistakes and gaffes, braces and breakups.... as well as grizzly attacks, snakebites, blizzards, avalanches, earthquakes, tornadoes, hurricanes, lightning, falling through the ice, being lost in the woods, and even more!
Buchholz’s advice is practical but at the same time, it’s humorous and “tongue-in-cheek”, so the book in no way gives the impression of being “preachy”. Simple “right” and “wrong” illustrations accompany each situation. Serious situations such as natural disasters or predators such as bears are juxtaposed with less-serious tricky situations (eg. exams, mean teachers and embarrassing parents), conveying the message to students that although they may have problems at home and at school, they could be in far worse trouble if facing a tornado or a hungry shark.
How to Survive Anything “addresses the angst of teen and preteen life with wit, humour, wisdom and easy-to-read text”, and would appeal to reluctant readers as well as enthusiastic readers, and to both boys and girls.
