Games: A Tale of Two Bullies by Carol Gorman
Each suspended twice in the first few weeks of school, eighth-grade archnemeses Boot Quinn and Mick Sullivan have been sentenced to play board games every day during lunch period until they can get along.
This book may be a little young for Thumbs Up, but I'm hesitant to axe it from the list because it's a good look at real issues that a lot of kids face every day. It is both chilling and very thought-provoking on many levels and I'd definitely recommend it to some of the younger but advanced readers that haunt my teen area.
A MAYBE for now.
