Written by bestselling author, Nancy Rue, each book in the Mean Girl Makeover trilogy focuses on a different character’s point of view: the bully, the victim, and the bystander. The books, based on Scripture, show solid biblical solutions to the bullying problem set in a story for tween girls.
You Can’t Sit With Us tells the story of Ginger Hollingberry, a new sixth grader at Gold Country Middle School. Ginger has been the brunt of teasing and taunting from the queen bee of GCMS, Kylie Steppe, and her so-called Wolf Pack. Kylie and the Pack favor a new and especially hurtful medium of taunting: social networking. What follows is a candid look into the growing world of cruel cyberbullying, showing kids that bullying doesn’t always end at school—it can now follow you even into your home and torture 24 hours a day.
Bullying isn't new but with the age of the Internet and social media, it's become more widespread. It's a situation that should be addressed and never tolerated.
The second book in the Mean Girl Makeover trilogy, You Can't Sit With Us, takes readers inside a world where a school-aged girl is menaced, both at school and on the Internet. Ginger is ridiculed from a group of girls, with the worst taunt talking about her dead mother. Although a "Code" is in place to help protect the kids in school against bullying, it's much harder to handle when the harassment occurs outside of school. In the end, all turns out well and Ginger learns a few things about friendship and herself.
You Can't Sit With Us is a fitting book for readers in middle school or high school. It tells the perspective of an abusive situation from the victim's point-of-view. Because it's told from the eyes of a sixth grader, the wording in the book is written very much like how a middle age student would think and speak.
