STICKS AND STONES, by Beth Goobie
Interest Level: Upper Grades
This book gives a very clear representation of how hard high school and a girl's life can be at that time. The trials the main character, Trudy goes through happen ever day thoughout many high schools. Trudy's life becomes altered when a rumor is started bya boy who didn't get what he wanted from her. In my opinion, this book shows how much boys at this age can be jerks. All in all, I would suggest reading this book becasue it's very relative to a lot of people.
