Lauren, a third grader, finds out that she is sitting next to the townís biggest bully, Bethany. The two girls get off to a bad start. For example, Bethany steals Laurenís snack at recess and writes Laurenís name on the bathroom wall. Lauren and Bethany get paired up for a social studies project at school. Read to find out how their project turns out!

I liked this book because it is not like any other book I have read before. This book deals with bullies. My favorite part was when Lauren and Bethany get paired up as partners for a school project because it kept me wondering if they were going to be able to work together or not. This book was so good I read it in one night!

I recommend this book to people who like to read about realistic problems. I think this is a good book for kids that are getting bullied or have ever been bullied because it tells you how to take charge and make the situation better.
