Review:

An enjoyable read. The author weaves all the realistic details of daily life that make readers forget this is fiction -- James Blasingame, Journal of Adolescent and Adult Literacy, September 2002

The suspense got to be so great that I could feel the blood pounding in my ears! --Terrance W., a 10th grade student

The second book (used with the class) was The Bully by Paul Langan, and it took the next six periods of eighth-grade classes by storm. I was no more than 2 paragraphs into reading my chosen chapter when I could tell from the absolute silence that the audience was hooked. Silence gave way to choral groans and laughter before a tense moment resulted in silence again and finally cheers when the protagonist, a small bullied ninth grader named Darrell, confronted the school bully Tyray, unexpectedly in the school cafeteria and sent him sprawling in a pool of spilled spaghetti. --James Blasingame from Books That Don't Bore 'Em, Scholastic, New York, NY. 2007
