Books of the Week, Oct 6th

Elementary - The Bully Book by Eric Kahn Gale -- Eric Haskins feels like everyone is picking on him, but when he discovers a conspiracy theory about a bully book that reveals a framework for gaining power in the school by turning everyone against one kid known as a grunt, Eric finds himself on the trail of huge secrets at Arborland Elementary School.

Middle School - Bullyville by Francine Prose -- After the death of his estranged father in the World Trade Center on September 11th, thirteen-year-old Bart, still struggling with feelings of guilt, sorrow and loss, wins a scholarship to the local preparatory school and encounters a vicious bully whose cruelty compounds the aftermath of the tragedy.

High School - Vicious: True Stories by Teens about Bullying by Hope Vanderberg -- Essays by teens address bullying: physical, verbal, relational, and cyber. These stories will appeal to readers because the cruelty and hurt are unmistakably real--and the reactions of the writers are sometimes cringe-worthy, often admirable, and always believable.
