The Truth about Truman School


The Truth about Truman SchoolThe Truth about Truman School by Dori Hillestad Butler
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

An absolutely up-to-date book on social media and bullying on the middle school level. Zebby and Amr are friends, and they are not part of the "cool" kids at Truman Middle School. They decide to set-up a webpage, when the school newspaper becomes too restrictive. Zebby just wants to have a discussion on the important issues at Truman, but things go terrible wrong. The website takes off, but it becomes a forum to attack one particular girl. A quick read, told by the different voices of the students at Truman. Very realistic.
