A BOY A GUN
York : Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers, 1999.
you know someone in your class who is the target of bullies? Someone
who is always teased, pushed, called names and generally picked on?
Have you ever wondered what their life might be like? Maybe we should
try to put ourselves into their shoes. In GIVE A BOY A GUN, we follow
Gary and Brendan from seventh grade through tenth grade. They are
outsiders. They aren't accepted by the "in-crowd". Their daily
school life was filled with name calling, pushing, ridicule. They
felt helpless to stop it. The teachers didn't seem to want to help.
Their parents weren't in a position to put an end to it. Gary and
Brendan just knew that they couldn't go on another two years in school
being tortured. They needed to do something. Something big.
Could they possibly think that destroying the "in-crowd" kids would serve
any purpose? Can they pull it off? Should they? Find
out what happens when you GIVE A BOY A GUN.
