Them by L.A. Weatherly-ADVISABLE

Weatherly, L.A., Them. Stoke Books, 2013. Pgs. 73. Language: PG (7 swears, no “f”s), Violence: G, Sexual Content: PG

Being the new girl in school is hard, especially when you’re Kylie and you get noticed by the mean, popular girls.  When her and Adam, the next door neighbor, get off on the wrong foot, Kylie complains to one of the popular girls. Instead of blowing it off, the popular girls talk her into humiliating Adam. But, how far can a practical joke go before it goes too far?

A great story for girls who have ever had to deal with popular kids bullying them. The story is simple, but well-written. The characters are likable and easy to relate to. Reluctant readers who like realistic fiction, friendship stories, and school settings will enjoy reading this book. MS, HS. ADVISABLE. Reviewer: Kira M, Youth Services Librarian, WHI Public Library.
