Her father has been telling her that she has to look out for her younger brothers. Julian, however, has been staying home from school, sick with fear, but when he finds out that Maddie is going to fight the bullies, he tells all. Now it's up to Maddie to come up with a new solution to make sure that not only will there be no more violence, but also no more fear and silence.

Editorial Review

"The ideas in the story will make sense to children and show that bullying has negative effects on more people than just the victim and the bullies. Told in simple language with short paragraphs and chapters, the book is well written for this age level."

— CM: Canadian Review of Materials
