About Jodee

Jodee is just a girl who wanted to fit in but had trouble. And people just picked on her for no reason. But in the end all her old bullies apologized to her. Also, invited her out for drinks after the reunion.

Conflict

Jodee had many conflicts during this book. She was picked on constantly, abused, and tortured for just doing the right thing. Then she tried moving schools and it still did not go over very well. She was still getting picked on by kids and on her last day of her high school career, they were all signing year books and Jodee asked her crush to sign it and he wrote a very mean and nasty comment. Jodee was very upset and she stormed out of the school and said that she would never go back their ever again.

Theme

You could say many themes about this book. But, I think that the theme is for kids to stop bullying and picking on other kids because they don't know the damage that they are doing to these kids.

Textual Evidence

The part in this book that I really thought was when Tyler "Jodees crush,"came up to sign her year book. And he wrote the meanest comment ever and that is when I thought was a very intense point during the book.

Rating

I give this book and 4 star rating. I thought it was a good book, but there was some sections that I thought were pretty boring.
