Patricia Polacco takes on cliques and online bullying Lyla finds a great friend in Jamie on her first day of school, but when Lyla makes the cheerleading squad and a clique of popular girls invites her to join them, Jamie is left behind. Lyla knows bullying when she sees it, though, and when she sees the girls viciously teasing classmates on Facebook, including Jamie, she is smart enough to get out. But no one dumps these girls, and now they're out for revenge. Patricia Polacco has taken up the cause against bullies ever since "Thank You, Mr. Falker," and her passion shines through in this powerful story of a girl who stands up for a friend.

"Powerful . . . dramatizes how online abuse has intensified the cruelty of bullying. . . . Dramatic line-and-watercolor artwork. . . . Kids will recognize the charged scenarios of anger and hurt and the seething contemporary middle-school social scene. Great for group discussion." -- Booklist "The artwork realistically portrays--through their body language and wonderfully expressive hands--what these youngsters are feeling. Polacco captures the insidiousness of cyberbullying. . . . Will spark intense and much-needed discussions." -- School Library Journal
