Cannon Balls for Girls offers a great format for girls to identify and discuss how the issues related to bullying affects them and how they can resolve such situations. The author offers a perspective that girls can relate to and enables them to work though the emotions that follow should bullying impact them or their friends. A relative of mine experienced this troubling problem at school. After reading this book she was able to begin a conversation with her mom that helped her better explain her feelings and express how she might begin to resolve the difficulty in a way that would strenghten her own self-esteem and would not escalate the situation.
