I need to nail a MG boy voice for my latest story. I don't have access to real kids right now, not even at a mall. I'm going by the kids I knew when I was teaching but I think even a few years later things must have changed.

So, anyone know of any TV shows/movies/websites that have authentic current voices?

Thanks!

How about the Diary of a Wimpy Kid movies? I think Greg Hefley starts middle school in the first one. . .

The slang they use on the cartoon ADVENTURE TIME is hilarious. It's on Cartoon Network. Happy watching!
