Math Doesn't Suck: How to Survive Middle School Math Without Losing Your Mind or Breaking a Nail by Danica McKellar
Remember Winnie from The Wonder Years? She has a math degree and is an internationally recognized math advocate -- especially for girls. This is her first book for middle-school kids -- she has a few more covering geometry, algebra and more. I ordered this one already for my third grader because she's already saying "Math is hard."
