Books about Bullying

Poison Ivy Poison Ivy by Amy Goldman Koss

My review

rating: 3 of 5 stars
Ivy has been picked on all her life, especially by Ann, Benita and Sophie. She also has the worst nickname ever: Poison Ivy. When her teacher suggests bringing a mock lawsuit against her three tormenters during a unit on the judicial system, however, the whole class will learn important lessons. The relationships are believable and the not-so-happy ending will make perfect sense to anyone who actually lived through high school (and barely survived). This book is told from multiple perspectives...eight! Compare with Koss' other book, _The Girls_ and _Carlos is Gonna Get It_ by Kevin Emerson.
