There is no such thing as neutral.
to the Ambassadors 4 Kids Club, one out of every four students is
bullied—and 85% of these situations never receive intervention. Parents,
students, and teachers alike have amped up the discussion of how to
solve the bullying problem for a networked generation of kids.
by bestselling author, Nancy Rue, each book in the Mean Girl Makeover
trilogy focuses on a different character’s point of view: the bully, the
victim, and the bystander. Each girl has a different personality so
that every reader can find a character she relates to. The books, based
on Scripture, show solid biblical solutions to the bullying problem set
in a story for kids.
So Not Okay tells the story of Tori
Taylor, a quiet sixth grader at Gold Country Middle School in Grass
Valley, California. Tori knows to stay out of the way of Kylie, the
queen bee of GCMS. When an awkward new student named Ginger becomes
Kylie's new target, Tori whispers a prayer of thanks that it’s not her.
But as Kylie’s bullying of Ginger continues to build, Tori feels guilty
and tries to be kind to Ginger. Pretty soon, the bullying line of fire
directed toward Ginger starts deflecting onto Tori, who must decide if
she and her friends can befriend Ginger and withstand Kylie’s taunts, or
do nothing and resume their status quo. Tori’s decision dramatically
changes her trajectory for the rest of the school year.
