Synopsis

Whitney Coaches David on Fighting Goliath And Learns to Stand Up for Herself by Therese J. Borchard

Bullies come in all shapes and sizes, as Whitney finds out in her third adventure. The new kid in town, she's still trying to find her own place among friends when the leader of the most popular clique snubs her. The girl decides to invite every classmate to a sleepover except Whitney--just to teach her a lesson. Whitney is devastated by the humiliation. Why would anyone want to hurt her for no reason? What can she do in response? Sobbing, she escapes into Nana's Emerald Bible and is transported to an ancient Israel being terrorized by Goliath. When young David goes unarmed to face the giant, it's Whitney who gives him a weapon--and a quick lesson in aiming a slingshot! David's bravery in turn gives Whitney the courage and the faith to believe in and stand up for herself, and go back and confront her own bully.
