Reviews

“So much of being bullied stems from not being able to take control of the situation, and students feel helpless and frustrated. In a book like this, students begin to realize there are options and solutions, but they must be a part of that process. There is more than one way to take control, and often humor is the the best medicine. This is a book about kids and for kids in today’s world, where we all need a little help from our friends.” – Robert Bier, reading specialist, former teacher

“The power of science is not to be underestimated. His Date for the Dance Was His Science Project is a story of school and Gilbert O’Shay, a science nerd who comes to the dance with a beautiful girl on his arm.
