For some inexplicable reason, the class bully and his pack make Eric the Grunt. Even his best friend since first grade turns on him. Hilarious and compelling, The Bully Book is a must-read for every tween, tween parent, librarian and educator! Eric Haskins has just started 6th grade. Life has always been pretty good for Eric. Everyone liked him before, so why all of a sudden is he the social outcast? In fact, there seems to be one for pretty much every grade level starting after sixth grade.
I felt like I was going to be placing myself into an unsafe situation which made me a little uncomfortable. I read The Bully Book in under 4 hours, which is the fastest I have read any book since elementary school.
Bullying is a very real thing that goes on in this world, especially in public schools, which is something that Eric Kahn Gale portrayed very nicely. I was captivated from the very first journal entry, and it lasted until the very last page. Is that harsh? I never had a teacher stand up for me, and I went to many different schools. Why should the student have to say anything?
However, there are MANY cases where they should know. The substitute teacher in The Bully Book made me so mad. I just wanted to jump into the story and throttle that stupid woman.
I was really offended for Eric, and I wish just one person would have really stood up for him. Another thing that bothered me during The Bully Book were the parents. A parent should know when their child is miserable. They should know when something is wrong.
You may not want to admit to yourself that your child is being bullied, but odds are that it has happened at least once. What matters is that you took an interest and made sure that they were safe. I honestly, for a large part of this book, thought that Eric was going to commit suicide from the torture that he was receiving. Never once did an adult take an interest in him.
His dad laughed! Not at the fact that Eric was being bullied, but he turned bullying into some sort of joke. He went along with Eric being the grunt and he turned into a complete and utter asshole.
I also wanted to see more interaction between Eric and Donovan. Melody played a good friend to Eric, and he also had a really big crush on her. This is actually very common. I understand that these are sixth graders, but sixth graders are not babies. I just wish that we had seen a little more interaction between Melody and Eric towards the end of the book. Then we come to poor, little Colin.
Colin was my absolute favorite character, and only a slightly lesser geek in the sixth grade population than Eric. This book definitely hit a lot of my triggers. The messages in it are amazing, though, and I definitely think that everyone should give it a chance. Bullying is a big issue in America and it needs to stop. The Bullying Book was an amazing read that took me on a rollercoaster ride of emotions.
My heart broke, my eyes welled with tears, and I swear my blood pressure rose massive amounts. I got angry, sad, happy, fearful…. I definitely will be looking out for more work by Eric Kahn Gale. Great book! It makes you sound like an idiot.
And stop calling people gay.
