bookshelves: cliques, right-and-wrong, bullying, ostracism, multiple-narrators
Recommended for: 7th grade and up

Not for faint of heart: when bullying girls' voices are heard, they're remorseless; mock trial verdict confirms that not enough students will speak up for bullied girl for fear of reprisal; grim conclusion. But such a powerful book. Espcially good for class discussions. Kids will say they didn't like the book because they don't like that kids are like this (or they recognize themselves) and it's good to reflect further.

Rachel I believe its sad how the popular girls always get what they want. When Ann was talking about bribing Faith to lie, she said "Do unto others what you have them do unto you" or somthing along the lines of that. What a hypocrite.
