killing themselves over bullying.This book takes a different tack, though, and casts the bully as our hero It was a bit difficult for me to like Luke at first, and that s a brave thing for an author to do give us a protagonist we don t care for.Luke isn t mean on purpose, he just doesn t realize what he s doing is really hurting people He s got it all he s popular, cute, smart, captain of the soccer team at a ritzy private school What he needs is a kick from reality right in his rear And he gets it.His goofing off gets him expelled from school Worse, this last incident involved a family member of his best friend, now ex best friend He loses everything school, friends, status More, his parents are pretty well unavailable His mother spends most of her life sleeping, and his father travels for work His sister is a worse bully than he is, and the little we see of her is just horrible.He s plunged into the foreign world of public school and it s a big awakening Suddenly he s not the cool kid any He s the one made fun of He doesn t fit in anywhere, and he can t even play soccer The one person he knows is someone he hurt the summer before, and she wants nothing to do with him.Luke doesn t undergo an immediate transformation, for which I am grateful It takes awhile, and a few virtual slaps to the head, for him to see what he d done in the past was hurtful He observes some kids doing the same stuff he used to do to another kid, and it all slowly starts to come clear The author paints a very realistic picture of school and kids and it s both a little sad and encouraging.I enjoyed this book It was a quick, enlightening read with a snappy plot and clean, descriptive writing My only complaint is that not all the ends were tied up I really wanted to see Luke take a stand with his sister and her behavior I d have like to see at least a little of the problems with his parents cleared up Luke does confront his dad, though nothing much really changes Even so, the book does have a satisfying ending with Luke and his growth And it left me wondering just what came next I was attached to this kid I hadn t liked at first, and I want to know he succeeds [[ Free

bullying This happens each and every day in schools all around the world It is a sad truth, and many kids are resorting to extreme means to get out of being bullied, going as far as killing themselves This book did not go to those extremes, but the pain of bullying could be seem throughout the book My only problem with this book was the way in which the characters talked to each other, it at times seemed forced and unrealistic of teens today to talk in this way The rest of the content of the book of very well written but I am not sure the author was able to capture how teens really talk to each other these days and also at times how they really act towards each other Otherwise it was a very good book and a great book for teens to read about bullying, I believe there should beabout this in the schools to be proactive to help stop the cycle of bullying.I would like to thank Goodreads and Judy Irwin for my signed copy of this book Luke is a big fish in the private school he attends He s captain of the soccer or as we Brits call, football team and popular with the girls He likes having fun by teasing the other students what harm can that cause If they take his jokes the wrong way, they just don t have a sense of humour, right That doesn t make him a bully, does it But when his latest prank gets him expelled, and loses him his best friend, Luke is transferred to his local school, where he ends up on the other en Luke is a big fish in the private school he attends He s captain of the soccer or as we Brits call, football team and popular with the girls He likes having fun by teasing the other students what harm can that cause If they take his jokes the wrong way, they just don t have a sense of humour, right That doesn t make him a bully, does it But when his latest prank gets him expelled, and loses him his best friend, Luke is transferred to his local school, where he ends up on the other end of bullying As he tries to settle at his new school, he begins to see bullying in a new light.I feel this isMiddle Grade than Young Adult fiction For someone who s not read much MG before, I enjoyed the story from Luke s perspective how he initially interprets his teasing as just having a bit of fun, and how his mindset changes when he transfers to a new school As a former schoolteacher, I can relate to how sometimes children just don t realise that what they say and do in jest can actually be very hurtful, and it just never occurs to them that their actions can be construed as bullying.Like teenage boys often do, Luke shows little emotion throughout the story, despite being expelled from his old school, losing his best friend, being subjected to the bullies at his new school, living with a mother battling depression, and having a father who s always too busy at work to be around OK, perhaps Luke seems a little unemotional at times, so the scene with his dad near the end of the book was a welcome change.While I found this a largely enjoyable read, with believable characters and very real current issues, I felt the story ended rather abruptly, with little resolution apart from Luke finally seeing the error of his ways, and making peace with some of his past victims An example of a big loose end Luke s older sister continues to torment fellow students via cyber bullying Perhaps it is the author s way of showing that bullying is a persistent problem that cannot be solved in one fell swoop, but I still felt a little unsatisfied by the ending.If you enjoy MG fiction dealing with real life social and domestic issues, if you enjoy stories with a strong underlying moral theme, then you may enjoy We re Done We re Done is a really quick read No surprise there since this is a book about young kids for young kids It s pretty easy to follow and is perfect for teenagers and tweens The book tackles the subject of bullying very well from the perspective of a bully Luke, the supposed bully, doesn t realize how his actions and words affect others until he finds himself on the other side of the fence.The main character Luke comes from a well off family Not a lot of details go into how well off they are, We re Done is a

very well from the perspective of a bully Luke, the supposed bully, doesn t realize how his actions and words affect others until he finds himself on the other side of the fence.The main character Luke comes from a well off family Not a lot of details go into how well off they are, but you can guess from the fact that Luke and his sister are in a private school and that his mom doesn t work that they are certainly not poor and probably live in a nice house with nice furniture, nice cherry wood kitchen cabinets, and other nice things However, there are some details that hint at a not so perfect family Luke s dad is always on business trips and his mom seems to be constantly depressed The book does not explicitly say that these are reasons for Luke s actions, but it shows that Luke s life isn t perfect.Luke goes to a private school, is used to being a popular guy in school, and loves to have fun at the expense of others He truly does not understand that his jokes hurt others Unfortunately for him his last joke gets him expelled and transferred to a public school where he isn t the big guy on campus any He meets new people bullies and bullying victims alike and realizes the gravity of his former actions.Sometimes we don t realize how much our words and actions hurt other people This book shows us to becareful and thoughtful with each other Although this is a pretty light read and shows consequences of bullying that are far lighter than what we see on the news these days, it doesn t stray from sending its message across Bullying is a serious issue and we all have to work together to stop it I received a review copy for the blog tour in exchange for an honest review Blog post here. Luke is 13 years old and goes to a private school He likes to joke with the other students but they don t find it so funny An incident during School Spirit Day is strike three against him according to the school s anti bullying rules and Luke is kicked out of the school, though he doesn t realize his behaviour was considered bullying His mother retreats within herself and is no support His older sister, Monica, and a friend of her are bullying a fellow student via Facebook He expected Luke is 13 years old and goes to a private school He likes to joke with the other students but they don t find it so funny An incident during School Spirit Day is strike three against him according to the school s anti bullying rules and Luke is kicked out of the school, though he doesn t realize his behaviour was considered bullying His mother retreats within herself and is no support His older sister, Monica, and a friend of her are bullying a fellow student via Facebook He expected his dad, who is out of town often on business, to be able to talk him back into the school and when this doesn t happen, he has to go to what he considers an inferior public school In addition, his best friend, Jon, who we met in What Did You Say , had had enough of his humour and doesn t want to be his friend any All in all, Luke is not likeable As he tries to fit in at the new school, he is picked on and made fun of by some of the kids Tash, who he met in What Did You Say , is a fellow student and doesn t give him the warm welcoming he expected because she took offense to something he said over the summer He s not used to not having his way and learns some humbling lessons in how to get along with his fellow students and how he had treated others in the past.This is the third book I ve read by this author and I enjoyed it I liked the writing style and thought it flowed well The subject matter is bullying which is a huge focus right now and this book could be an eye opener to kids who don t realize they are being bullies Though it is a YA book, I didn t find the writing or storyline too immature for me It s a quick read and I d recommend it for everyone there s no bad language or mature situations.Blog review post Luke is a 13 year old who attends a prestigious private school He s a great athlete, loved by the girls, and hangs out with his best friend Jon The problem is, he s kind of a jerk He says mean things to other kids all the time, but one day he goes too far and gets kicked out of school Luke then transfers to a public school, and he quickly learns that while he may think the things he says are funny, other people rarely do He must learn to think before he speaks, and think about how his words Luke is a 13 year old who attends a prestigious private school He s a great athlete, loved by the girls, and hangs out with his best friend Jon The problem is, he s kind of a jerk He says mean things to other kids all the time, but one day he goes too far and gets kicked out of school Luke then transfers to a public school, and he quickly learns that while he may think the things he says are funny, other people rarely do He must learn to think before he speaks, and think about how his words hurt others.Right from the very beginning of this book I didn t like Luke very much He was very cocky and rude I knew he would have a lot to learn if he wanted to change himself He was outraged at the fact that he had to change schools, but that s exactly what he needed By making him a fish out of water, he was forced to confront others and really take a look at what he was doing.The only problem I had was that I felt that Luke s family could have done better by him I believe the author was trying to make it so that Luke s problems were a result of him acting out because of the absence of parental guidance in his life But after him getting kicked out of school, he isn t even punished Ultimately Luke worked out his problems on his own, so I guess that worked out OK I think this makes a great read for middle graders who need to take a look at how they treat others Bullying has become such an issue amongst youths today, and this is a book that addresses this young adult issue in a way that teens and preteens can understand Yes, this is a book that I believe youth and adults alike should read and discuss I say this because no matter what has been said about the dangers and intolerance of bullying in schools, it still happens on a regular basis.Luke is one of those kids that is very likable, but he has a problem Possibly, it is a problem of which he is no

of those kids that is very likable, but he has a problem Possibly, it is a problem of which he is not even aware Sad to say, he is in good company when it comes to bullies in school I am a teacher, and if you ask students if bullying is a problem, they say it is But if you ask if they are bullying others, the answer is no They are just kidding, or the object of their teasing is too sensitive.This is a very quick read, and it packs a pretty hard punch Through Luke s eyes, we examine bullying, depression, disconnected parents, facebook, private schools, public schools, loss or friendship, finding your niche, and so muchAnd there is no sex nor profanity How cool is that I don t usually recommend that everyone reads a book, but I certainly do here Oh, and just so you know, the book is very realistic not all loose ends are solved This only strengthens the message of the book.I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review I was not financially compensation, and all opinions are 100 percent mine Have you ever been bullied Been the bully All of us have come into contact with some form of bullying in our lifetimes This book has a really important message And the good thing about this book is that you get to experience it through the eyes of the bully This book is not hard or dark The bullying is rather quite calm, but still gets the point across Not that any bullying is calm I give the message 5 stars Now about the book I ended up liking Luke, after he had his epiphany that b Have you ever been bullied Been the bully All of us

bullies and victims I give the book 2 1 2 stars I received this book from the author publisher tour company for review This book is written for the middle school age group and has an important lesson

However, the book is designed as a one issue book showing that bullying is wrong, even if it s disguised as joking and is not designed to be a deep look at the issues or Luke s family life It is, after all, written for the 9 13 year old.I m looking forward to the next book in the series and am planning on ordering it for our library we have some patrons who would really enjoy this book
