The Book

Yacqui Delgado Wants to Kick Your Ass by Meg Medina

Yacqui Delgado Wants to Kick Your Ass by Meg Medina

I’ve had this book on my radar a while and I’m anxious to read it. Our heroine, Piddy, arrives in a new school only to become the subject of Yacqui Delgado’s harassment. As you can imagine, the bullying escalates and it affects Piddy’s life completely and Piddy has to figure out how to get help and get Yacqui and her bullies to stop.

Anyone who survives bullying is awesome in my book.
And a total Bad Girl.

Go Piddy Go!!

If you are someone you know is having trouble with bullying please GET HELP.

What’s on My Radar: The Sweetest Heist in History (Randi Rhodes, Ninja Detective) by Octavia Spencer

A year or so ago I got to meet Octavia Spencer as she debuted her new middle-grade novel: Randi Rhodes, Ninja Detective.

Randi Rhodes Ninja Detective by Octavia Spencer

 

I loved the book, especially since there are multicultural main characters within the story: an African-American boy and a Hispanic boy who has asthma.

Spencer’s sequel: The Sweetest Heist in History is on my radar and I MUST read it!

And besides, who doesn’t love ninjas?
