“Just kidding!” That’s what D.J.’s friend Vince says when he does something to hurt D.J.’s feelings. But D.J. knows it’s not a joke. How can D.J. stand up to Vince’s teasing without looking like a bad sport?
In words and pictures, this book takes a rare look at emotional bullying among boys—situations where a buddy can be a bully, and where two innocent words can make a painful reality. With help from supportive adults (his father and his teacher), D.J. learns ways to respond to Vince that restore the balance of power between them.
Includes a preface by Stan Davis, founder of the Web site www.stopbullyingnow.com, and a discussion and resource guide for teachers and parents.
