9781250085863: The Fix-It Friends: Sticks and Stones

Because words can hurt you too.

Noah’s the quiet type, which makes him a great friend for Veronica. She chats. He listens. She gabs. He nods. Perfect!

So when Veronica spots Noah getting teased, she decides that if he won’t speak up for himself, she will! What she doesn't expect is that the teasing will turn on her -- and her sense of style. Veronica's so embarrassed that she agrees to a mega Makeover from Cora, the Queen of Cute. When this only makes the name-calling worse, Veronica and Noah know just who to call for back-up: the one-and-only problem-solving team, the Fix-It Friends!

This is the second adventure in The Fix-It Friends chapter book series. Author Nicole C. Kear anchors humor with lots of heart, as the group learns to deal with teasing and bullying.

Includes a toolbox of expert advice on how to handle teasing!
