Jayla feels threatened by her classmate Sam, who has bullied her in the past for her “nerdy” love of astronomy and stars. Sam is now bullying Jayla’s friend Luisa, and she enlists Jayla to participate. Jalya reluctantly joins in but soon realises it is wrong. With the help of caring adults and friends, Jayla comes to sympathise with Luisa and finds the courage to dare to stand up to Sam and put an end to the bullying.
The three books in the Weird series tell the story of an ongoing case of kids bullying from three third graders’ perspectives. The books may be read separately or as a set; readers will enjoy tracking small details that carry over from one book to another. These books on bullying each conclude with “activity club” pages for kids, as well as information to help parents, teachers, counsellors, and other adults reinforce the books’ messages and foster dialogue with children.
