review 1: This book wasn't horrible but it was really hard to get through. I like the idea of a book talking about bullying. Beth was really all alone in a school full of bullies. No one wanted to help people like she did because they were too afraid of the adminstration. Throughout the book I found myself rooting for her hoping she didn't give up on the few people that needed her. All of the things she was doing were for her son Danny and what he wrote about in an essay. She wanted to keep his memeory alive along with not letting the school fall apart to mean and hurtful students.
review 2: I did not like this book. I felt like most of the characters were completely one dimensional - the principals, the students Jen, Tina and Fred, the husband. I find it unbelievable
... morethat principals and students would get away with talking to a school employee the way Beth was talked to in the book, and that her husband would be that much of a jerk to her. When I read the description for this book, it sounded like a mom fighting bullies in her son's memory. I don't think there was any bully fighting in this book - it was more of the mom dealing with jerky, unrealistic people and complaining about it. Boring! I kept reading hoping that the end would at least make up for the rest of the book, but it totally didn't. I want my $7.99 and those 4 hours of my life I just wasted back please. less
