Real Friends vs. The Other Kind is the 2nd book app in the Middle school confidential series. As the title suggests, this book app addresses friendships among middle school kids. What is a real friend? What do you mean when you call someone friend? What do you do if a friend gets her way all the time? What do you do if a friend ask you do something you don’t want to? … These are all real questions from real life. Just like the first app, Real friends vs. the Other Kind teaches kids the skills they need for their everyday life. It is so practical, that everyone who’s gone through teenage period can relate to the characters and stories.
In addition to the story, this app also offers multiple-choice quizzes after certain chapters. Upon finishing the quiz, kids get immediate feedback on their choices under different scenarios. This is a good reinforcement on the skills learned from the stories.
At the end of the app, there is an “About the Cast” section. Here the readers get to know the characters in the story a little more. For example, Jack is good at sports, but not so good at expressing feeling. I suggest reading this section first before starting the story. It helps the kids understand why each character reacts the way he/she does in the stories.
Teenage years are tough. A book teaching kids how to handle everyday issues, in real life scenario and relevant language, Real friends vs. the Other Kind is a good go-to resource for kids this age, and their parents.
The book app is design for kids age 8 to 14. It works on iPhone, iPod, and iPAD. It is $2.99 on App Store.
