Great Judy Blume book about bullying in a 5th grade class. Has aspects of leadership, control, admitting guilt and paying the consequences. Shows a number of different personality types. This book was written in conjunction with 2 supervising 5th graders.
Do I really need to write a review for this book? It's BLUBBER, for godsakes! Judy Blume rocks. It's awesome to be able to revisit the classics as I introduce my nieces to her work. If you haven't read this one in a few (too many) years, do. Then pass on to the ten-year-old girl in your life.
