Flirting–so what is itMila starts to gain confidence when she enrolls in karate class But her friends still don’t understand why Mila is making such a big deal about the boys’ attention When Mila is finally pushed too far she realizes she can’t battle this on her own–and finds help in some unexpected places. “They were just being friendly” “Today’s my birthday” “Seventh grade boys can be very immature” “Maybe they just like you” “It’s called flirting” “Maybe if you think about what you’re doing”Hands swishing across her shoulder sueezing a shoulder bumping her shoulder on the bus Boys asking for hugs and to touch her sweater for luck leaning on her during band practice touching her Even when she tells them to stop It gets worse when she finds out that the basketball team has made a game out of harassing her Seventh grader Mila doesn’t know what is happening but she knows she feels very uncomfortable And it keeps getting worse “The whole thing is out of control” 184Are the boys on the basketball team just playing around or is she misreading their actions and words Her friends aren’t much help Zara makes everything all about her and can say mean things although she always apologizes Omi is supportive but timid and Max insists that she talk to Mr McCabe but he is also the boys’ basketball coach Her female guidance counselor is on maternity leave and when she finally goes to Mr Dolan the male guidance he brushes off her concerns “Mila I can tell you from experience that the best course of action is to try to ignore them” 56Mila can’t tell her mother who has her own problems with a mean boss and trying to make ends meet and convince her ex husband to pay child supportFinally Mila gets some strength from karate lessons and Samira a school classmate who leads the lessons When she is again harassed before the big band concert she makes an act of desperation unfortunately bringing the concert to a halt but reinforced by another classmate’s similar story she ultimately tells the band teacher about the endless harassment Finally someone understands “I also understand that sometimes you reach a point where the only thing that matters is being heard No not just heard Listened to right” 202Mila’s story made me cringe throughout The story while simply told conveys Mila’s confusion and feelings of helplessness The novel illustrates the importance of telling an adult an adult who understands and recognizes harassment for what it is As Mr Dolan says when Mila is explaining how it felt “I really think this is something I need to hear” 216 Barbara Dee’s newest novel needs to be read by all middle school girls and even critically by all middle school boys This would be an ideal book for a group of students to read aloud and discuss with a teacher and counselor in a homeroom meeting or advisement period It also would be an effective choice for a whole class read before or after book clubs reading novels about bullying

THIS BOOK IS SO INCREDIBLY IMPORTANT Put it in your classrooms libraries and directly into your children's hands Dee tackles harassment in an age appropriate manner that doesn't shy away from holding adults accountable for paying attention My favorite part is when Mila begins karate classes and learns that defending yourself is about than shin kicks although they're still awesome Bravo
