Freshman Survival

Students write `Freshman Survival Guide' 

More than 60 sophomores at a high school in Georgia have used class time to write a book designed to help freshmen. The students at McIntosh High School in Peachtree City penned "High School 101: Freshman Survival Guide" as a class project at the suggestion of their English teacher, Dawn Burnette. They'll sell 500 copies of the paperback, which they bound themselves in the school library. The book -- which sells for 14 dollars and 95 cents -- includes advice on how to juggle homework, make new friends, handle peer pressure and avoid the ridicule of upperclassmen. There's even a section called "Top Ten Worst Ways to Break Up With Someone." Students are confident the book's appeal will stretch beyond Peachtree City, some 35 miles south of Atlanta.
