Middle School Advice

All the middle-schoolers around here seem to be spending their summer flirting or waiting to flirt.  And why not? They swing on the swings at the playground in a desultory fashion, scuffing their feet and casing out who's at the concession stand. The arcs between studied nonchalance and  madcap giggling must be exhausting. Maybe they'll want a good book at the end of the day; maybe they'll want to instant-message everyone they know about what happened or didn't happen at the park. If it's the first case scenario, the Detroit Free Press can help. See its list of post-Potter recs here.
