Kevin has to do the right thing.

Kevin Frasier is in a new high school—his fourth in the last year. He is trying to get along and not cause any waves. When he falls in with Nick and his friends, Frasier ends up going along as the group bullies and threatens their way through the school. When Nick starts tormenting Erin—and she stands up to him—the harassment escalates until Kevin is forced to make a difficult decision and risk everything.

Darlene Ryan has been writing for as long as she can remember and was the 2006 poet recipient of the Dr. Marilyn Trenholme Counsell Early Childhood Literacy Award. As Sofie Kelly, she writes the best-selling Magical Cats mysteries. She lives with her family in Fredericton, New Brunswick. For more information, visit www.darleneryan.com.

"Ryan has taken a much-discussed issue, teen bullying, and has 'made it new'—an achievement to which all novelists aspire." - CM Magazine

"Set around the hot topic of bullying, Ryan tells an action-packed story that includes current teen issues from both home and the school environment." - TeensReadToo.com

"Very topical...opens the door for a great discussion." - Resource Links

"Convey[s] an important lesson and some thought-provoking questions...The violence in the book is not glorified in any way and is presented as successfully scary and sickening." - NMRLS Youth Services Book Review
