Julie is presented with a perfect opportunity to get back at her tormentor.

Julie is tired of being tormented at school, tired of not fitting in and being the butt of jokes. When her brother brings home a camera with images of her chief tormentor in a compromising situation, she sees a way to level the playing field. When her attempt at turning the tables goes wrong, she is left even more on the outside and struggling to do the right thing.

Also available in Spanish.

A language arts teacher, Patricia Murdoch knows all too well the importance of learning to read and the power of a strong story. She lives in Bradford, Ontario.

“Revenge is at best bittersweet and Murdoch takes this reality into the heart of high school with characters YAs can relate to.” - KLIATT

“An excellent book for reluctant readers. With a strong story, straightforward language and interesting, plausible characters, this book deals with real situations and emotions that any high school student might encounter. Highly Recommended.” - CM Magazine

"Well written and thoughtful…will be popular with reluctant readers." - School Library Journal

"A compelling, albeit condensed, discussion of bullying from the viewpoints of the abuser and the victim." - Alan Review

"Its dialogue sparkles and the characters are believable and real...highly recommended." - Canadian Book Review Annual

"There is a sophistication about this book that works well to gain and maintain interest without preaching to the converted. There's more show than tell here, and that speaks volumes." - Resource Links
