Bystander by James Preller

I think inside we all know that bullying is bad. There’s no good reason ever to bully someone else. We learn that from when we’re little. But what about being a bystander to a bully? What do you do when you see someone being mistreated by someone else? Do you say something to the bully? Do you tell an adult? Do you pretend you didn’t see anything? Do you stop it? These are the questions 13 year old Eric has to think about when he is the new kid in town, wants new friends and finds out the one friend he found is a bully. Does he keep quiet? Does he say something and get beat up himself? Read Bystander and find out! Review by Mrs. Hembreebystander

  1. Dear Mrs Hembree,

    This book sounds very interesting. I would like to read this book.
    Bullying should not be allowed.
    I hope this book has a happy ending.

  2. Dear BB,
    Yes, Bystander has a worthwhile conclusion! I don’t know what grade you are in, but this book is appropriate for students ages 10+.
    I have a question for you. How do you find the time to respond to so many blogs? You are a busy girl!
