Life is good for Jack. He's a great photographer, he wins at handball, and time at home with his family is never boring. But when big George Hamel starts calling Jack "Butt Head," school becomes a little less great. And when everyone starts calling him "Butt Head," it gets outright dangerous.
Susanne Gervay's thoughtful story sheds light on the contagious and destructive nature of school bullying, and the power of humor, love, and community to overcome it.
