NPR's Melissa Block talks with Linda Perlstein, author of the book Not Much, Just Chillin': The Hidden Lives of Middle Schoolers. Perlstein discusses the time she spent observing 6th, 7th and 8th graders in a school in Columbia, Md., and the ways in which they handle adolescence and the issues that come with it.
