Then Marlea Harkins, one of the most popular girls in school—and most definitely the meanest—does something unthinkable, and suddenly nice, average Jordan isn’t thinking average thoughts anymore. She wants to get Marlea back! But what’s the best way to beat a bully? Could it be with kindness? Called “a genius of gentle, high concept tales set in suburban middle school” by The New York Times, bestselling author Andrew Clements presents a compelling story of the greatest achievement possible—self-acceptance.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Andrew Clement set the standard for the school story.” New York Times
“Andrew Clements has written another thoughtful novel of problems that young readers really do face.” Barnes & Noble, editorial review
“Clements adds to his canon of school stories with this thoughtful novel.” Publishers Weekly
“As he has done so often before, Clements offers a comfortable third-person narrative, a convincing school story full of familiar sights and sounds, as well as a believable cast of characters. Unusually, Clements also models grown-ups with fulfilling, if ordinary lives…What is extraordinary is how Clements can continue to produce realistic examples of kid power year after year. More than a feel-good story with a message, this is another good read.” Kirkus Reviews
