This is a great book for teaching kids that everyone has some kind of battle going on in their lives that we may not know about and thus, it is important to always be kind. But there is still something about it that makes me think about it and I’m angry pignta every single character.

While there was depth to the characters, the bullying situations were very violent and very public, and I do not think that this level of outright bullying would be overlooked or minimalized to the extent it was by parents and teachers in the book.

Young readers will find lots to think about as they turn the pages of this crisp and compelling story by newcomer Caroline Pignat.
