Left Out by Tim Green is an amazing book that you must read. It's about a boy named Landon Dorch who wears cochlear implants because he is deaf in both ears. I think that Landon is a great kid, but other people always bully him for being too tall, overweight, and deaf. Bullies have always been a problem for Landon, but it is taken to a whole new level when the Dorch family moves to Bronxville, New York. There are three bullies who should probably be expelled, their names are Mike, Skip, and Xander, and they have done everything from beating Landon up to taking pictures of him on the toilet. Landon has also joined the football team to try to fit in, which I think is an amazing idea, but he doesn't really know how to play and is cast away as a water-boy by his coaches, which is super unfair. But with his newfound friends Brett and Megan, and his fierce sister Genevieve, Landon is able to overcome all his obstacles and even become a star in football. I am very happy there is a happy ending to this story, because that is what Landon deserved, he is a great kid and even after bullied so many times he never resorted to violence, which I think is amazing.
I bought it in hopes that it will teach my son the importance of treating everyone with respect and care for differences. He said he loved it. I hope the story will always stay in the back of his mind.
