This book does have some bad language, but over-all it is a very good book. :)

When Jill joins in to pick on another child in her class, she never stopped to think what it would feel like to be picked on herself.
That would never happen... would it?

This is a great book to read on anti-bullying. In the novel, there is an overweight classmate that gets bullied. Jill is going along with the rest of the class in mistreating her. Little does Jill know what it feels like to be tormented until it actually happens to her. I reccomend this book to any student in the fifth-grade who can relate or remember this experience happening.
