Due to the incidences and worldwide bullying occurrences, I have read and viewed a fair amount of “Bully Books.” Due to the popularity of this epidemic, just about everyone is reading on the subject matter. Whether its cyber, school, or work related, there’s a book or guide available for anyone desiring more education on this issue.
What I love about Teenage Author Nkiyasi Helm’s book in particular is that the title itself directly serves as one solution to this ever so cruel issue. Grace, the main character of this book is a young courageous lady who decides to take a stand against bullying while at the same time digs deeper by attempting to discover the root of why “Big Bertha” does the mean and evil things she does to everyone.
I love this book because it teaches a lesson beyond bullying and it provides some questions to think about for the readers at the end of the story. The book is easy to read and I recommend it for all kids ranging from the ages of 5 and up. Great job on this one Nkiyasi. I look forward to reading your other books in the nearer future.
