You Can’t Sit With Us: Mean Girl Makeover ~ Tween Book Review

You Cant Sit With Us BookThe topic of bullying has received much attention in the media lately, unfortunately for good reason. Although many voices have contributed to the discussion of solutions, one out of every four students have been bullied, and 85% do not receive help (according to the Ambassadors 4 Kids Club).

Bestselling author Nancy Rue has added her voice to the dialogue on bullying through her Mean Girl Makeover Series. The series offers biblical solutions to the problem through fictional stories written for preteens.  Each of the three books takes on a different character’s point of view: the bully, the victim, and the bystander.

Below is a guest review of the second book of the trilogy, You Can’t Sit With Us: An Honest Look at Bullying from the Victim, from my 14-year-old niece.

Guest Review

“What did you like about You Can’t Sit With Us?”

I enjoyed the story and liked the characters, and the book was written well.  I thought it was even better than the first book! It was really hard to put it down!  I like that she (the victim) finally took a stand for herself in a noble way.

“Tell me a little about the story.”

The first book in the trilogy is So Not Okay.  One of the main characters, Tori, organizes a group that creates an anti-bullying code and stands up against bullies.  In the second book, a sixth-grade girl named Ginger is bullied again but this time it’s through social networking.  She gets injured, but in the end learns to stand up for herself.

“Would you recommend it to others to read?”

Yes! The book gives insight into what can happen in school.  It would be an encouragement for kids who are bullied.  I think kids who are bullies should read it so that they understand what their victims are going through.
