Review

Review, Kirkus Reviews, July 1, 2010:
"This fictional cure will resonate with its intended audience."

Review, Book Faerie.com, August 9, 2010:
"This book is written for children ages 7-11, but the life skills are applicable to all. Help your child learn about bullying and how to protect themselves from it by sharing this book with them."

Review, Booklist, September 1, 2010:
“…many children looking for practical advice on bullying will find this journal more thought-provoking, practical, and readable than many nonfiction books on the subject.”


Review,
