Callie s Rules for Things to Do in Middle School: .Have lots of pictures in your phone..Get a phone.Callie Jones is excited about her first day of sixth grade, but from the moment she arrives and is greeted by dirty looks (apparently, you don t ride your bike to middle school), she realizes that there are a set of unwritten rules that everyone seems to know everyone except her. So Callie decides she ll write a list of the rules, and she ll never go wrong again.At home, Callie s close-knit family is making big Halloween plans, until the parents of snotty Valeri Van Dine convince the Town Council to cancel Halloween and replace it with Autumn Fest, a celebration of wholesome American values. Callie doesn t think their arguments make much sense, and the Council keeps making rules so they don t have to listen. So Callie decides it s time to make some rules of her own."
