Welcome to middle school! What's it all about? Helpful narrators Denice and Roman are here to answer your questions. Well, Denice is - but while she is debunking locker-stuffing myths and explaining when the bell rings, Roman is busy investigating cafeteria workers who dress like pirates and other odd secrets. While some of the new middle-schoolers want to know where the bathroom is and what the deal is with P.E., others are mostly concerned with grizzly bear attacks. And does anybody understand what the principal is shouting about under that weird hair during announcements? All will be revealed with plenty of comedy along the way in Everything You Always Wanted to Know about Middle School (but were too busy being stuffed in a locker to ask).
