This trilogy of bullying and conflict resolution from different perspectives would be a great addition to any home and library. Each book is great as a stand-alone, but the three together are powerful.
Each book comes with a series of thought-provoking questions, a letter from the main character explaining how they felt and why they took the actions they did. There's a teacher's guide (well, Leader guide), an Activity Corner, and information for both adults and kids on approaching the issue of bullying. I think some good discussions would come from sharing this with your children or students.
Note: Also meets Common Core standards.
The Weird Series is published by Free Spirit Publishing. Digital ARCs provided by NetGalley.
