    This book kind of has a moral to it, which is to not bully, and then it shows you what that feels like. This book is about Jill Brenner, and how she doesn't really like to be bossed around, though she's afraid of offending Wendy, whose like the popular girl at school. Loved this book!

        So i read this book because i and nothing else to read and it was super weird and confusing. The characters feelings were hard to really depict and i wouldnt recommend this unless you have nothing else to read.

          This book would be great for children who are becoming older and need to learn how it feels to be bullied wich Judy describes quite well though the consequences the children serve after the alults find out are very unrealistic. It is about a girl named Jill Brenner who bullies an obeice child in her class. This bullying turns very serious from calling her names to hurting her. But eventually Jill stands up for (this is very realistic) Linda (Blubber)and the bullies start targeting Jill. And Linda joins in! I think this is good because we get to see how it feels to bully someone and how it feels to be bullied. This book is good but not amazing. I'm going to say it is for ages 10 plus because it is very sad there is some swearing which was totally unnecessary.

                  It is mean but the main character learns a very valuable lesson. The main character is a follower until one day she stands up for someone and everything is different.
