Taylor Book review

I think that Sticks and Stones is a very good book to read for girls going into high school because it is experinces that will happen. Something i loved about this book was how things flowed in each chapter of the book. My favorite character in the book was Jujube because for what had happened to her she dealed with the situation in the best way i know that for most people it would be hard to get over something like that

Sticks and Stones

Sticks and Stones is a book about a girl who gets back stabbed by her so-called friend. One little action changed her whole life. Throughout the book you will find out how she tries to fix her life.What I liked about the bookwas that it was just like a high school problem. I also liked that it was very realistic. I really liked the fact that I could visualize the characters.I would recommend this book to 7th graders because I think they would get it more than younger students.

Sticks and Stones

Have you have hear someone talk about you behind your back?Well in the book Sticks and Stones By: Beth Goobie.Ther is a girl named Jujube that everyone at school called her slut.When she finds out that they have been calling her "sut"she was feeling bad. Jujube didn't listen to the people but she was sad because Brent the guy that she was going to make out?but she did want to so he told the school that she did want to.The thing I like in this book is how strong Jujube was.She wasn't doing anything to stop the girls instead she didn't listen to the recommendation is to all the people that like to read book sthat are really strong feelings.

Realistic portrayal of teen [physical] harassment

Jujube becomes the target of a vicuous gossip and bathroom wall grafitti when her dance date doesn't deny the rumor that she slept with him on the their first date. Refusing to become a victim, she uses her class assignment on Ways We Communicate to fight an administration that refuses to take the matter seriously. Sticks and Stones is part of Orca's Soundings series. Written by award winning Canadian authors, the short themetic novels are designed for classroom use with special appeal for the reluctant reader. Large print type and simply constructed sentences combine with a flashy neon title and striking color photograph to hook. Characterization is a bit flat, perhaps because of the brevity of the novels, but the plot is strong (if not complex) in both novels. Sticks and Stones has a sympathetic character and universal theme. Based on real life events, are ideal for discussion and could even create a neat segway into current events. Highly recommended.

Good Stuff

The book isn't extremely long, but I really enjoyed it. I read it sometime last year. It's about this girl who is flamed by this guy who she didn't want to go far with. Suddenly her world is turned around, and everyone is calling her names behind her back and to her face, and she has a reputation as a slut. Out of anger I suppose the buy (who's name I forget) lashed out and and told everyone they had sex or something, and she soon gained a reputation as a slut. Sticks and Stones may sounds like an average teen novel, but it's definetly not Sweet Valley High. Beth Goobie writes in such a way that you forget you're reading a book....I recommend this completely. (Of course she's a local author so I haven't the slightest clue on how many people have read this.) I also encourage you to read some of her other books, Before Wings, Kicked out and The Colors of Carol Molev.
