Publisher Comments:

What happens when teasing goes too far? This classic middle grade novel from Judy Blume addresses the timeless topic of bullying and has a fresh new look.andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;and#8220;Blubber is a good name for her,and#8221; the note from Caroline said about Linda. Jill crumpled it up and left it on the corner of her school desk. She didnand#8217;t want to think about Linda or her dumb report on whales just then. Jill wanted to think about Halloween.andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt;But Robby grabbed the note and before Linda stopped talking it had gone halfway around the room. There was something about Linda that made a lot of kids in her fifth-grade class want to see how far they could goand#8230;but nobody, Jill least of all, expected the fun to end where it did.
