Putting her body in motion before her brain is in gear creates a mountain of problems for 12 year-old Ginnie West. She is certain that defending her twin brother, Toran, from the biggest bully in sixth grade was the right thing to do. But Ginnie couldn’t be more wrong.

She quickly figures out that Toran doesn’t appreciate being rescued by a girl any better than Pierce likes being knocked down by one. When Pierce seeks revenge on Ginnie, Toran sets aside his anger and helps her plot a playback prank at Pierce’s house.

Sadly, Ginnie learns that Pierce has a reason for being a bully when she sees his dad drop him to the floor like a ragdoll with one awful blow to the chest. Realizing he’s a boy in big trouble, Ginnie switches gears and decides to be his ally, even if he won’t let her be his friend.

My thoughts: I have enjoyed this series and getting to know the characters! Originally, I had thought that it would be a good series to read with my daughter, but then found that it is geared more towards middle school readers and is best suited for the struggles that some of the kids in that age bracket deal with. The first book dealt some with divorce and an abusive father (though tasteful and not a lot of details), as well as grief and the different ways that people deal with it, while this one deals some with bullying. I love the lessons that Ginnie learns along the way in this series! I look forward to reading the other books.

I received this book from Just Reads. This is my honest review.
