Please Stop Laughing at Me
By Zane Risser
Jodee is transferring to a new school because she was getting bullied at her old schools. The first day of school she is already getting bullied. Eventually she starts to make some friends at school and around her neighborhood. But she still got bullied everyday at school. She got to a point where she stopped eating and caring about anything. When she made a friend named Annie, the bulling went down a lot and she was starting to feel better. In the last day of school she asked a boy she had a crush on to sign her year book. And so he did, but when she looked at it he said," No one likes you." After twenty years she gets invited to her high school reunion. She decides to go, but when she gets there she won't get out of the car. She eventually went inside and is greeted by everyone very nicely and then gets invited to go get a drink.
I think the theme is don't bully people because it can have a major effect on them. And it can hurt them for the rest of their life.
I would give my book a 4 star rating. Because it shows the pain she went through getting bullied. And it was wrote very well, with ups and downs. It had conflict all through the book and it wasn't to long but it wasn't to short.
