Bullying is not just about physical aggression but can sometimes take the form of manipulation, humiliation, and hurtful teasing. This book clearly illustrates for children the power dynamic at play between two girls who used to be friends before their relationship evolved into one of bully and victim. This is a great book to use to help talk to children about the various forms of bullying and how one can respond to get the support to stick up for oneself and move on from a relationship that is unhealthy to seek out positive friendships.
