Synopsis

The Bully by Liz Brown

Sugar and spice and everything...well, mean. Allie finds that the worst bully at the school is a girl...And the worst weapon can be a whisper...Allie tries to confront the bully herself...But, ultimately, if she's going to stop the torment...she needs to get help from her teacher...Books aren't your thing? Don't worry. You just haven't read the right ones yet. These books are 'page-turners'. Whether they are funny or exciting, or emotional, they are all about believable people. This isn't Hogwarts, it's the real world. They are designed, first and foremost, to be really enjoyable - great stories that will have you hooked from the first page and won't let up - or let you down - until you've finished. Basically, they don't muck about: they start off gripping, and keep up with the action until the very last page. The books have everything from trappings, snow disasters, Arctic strandings, bullies, mystical horses, hackers, missing kids, juvenile prison, death-defying crashes, ghosts, divorce, hold-ups, death and honour, street gangs, drugs, intense sport...you name it. So whatever your 'flava', we have something to tickle your fancy. Pick one up and enjoy the ride...

About the Author

Liz Brown is a writer from Ontario, Canada. She wrote Dark Ryder for the HIP Series in Canada and also does work for national magazines and newspapers. When Liz went to high school, she knew a group of girls that liked to bully some of the other students. Like Allie in The Bully, the victims eventually talked to some of their teachers. The teachers set up a programme called peer mediation where student leaders would talk to the bullies. The programme worked well because students who were involved in the bullying were more likely to talk to other students about the reasons for their actions. At this point in her life, Liz Brown is thinking about becoming a teacher. If she does, she'll make sure no bullying ever takes place in her classroom.
