Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Suzanna E. Henshon
Chrissa can't wait for swim team tryouts, which are coming soon at the Edgewater Swim Club. She has been practicing her dives and strokes all summer. While Chrissa is back-to-school shopping with her mother, Tara approaches and acts friendly. But can Chrissa trust Tara, who was so mean last year? Or is Chrissa better off sticking with Gwen and Sonali, her two best friends at Edgewater Elementary School? Chrissa starts receiving mean text messages—and then there are cruel notes posted on the swim team club website. Who can Chrissa trust? Does she have any genuine friends at her new school? To make matters worse, a terrible accident happens to Tyler, Chrissa's brother, as he dives during practice. Chrissa's life turns upside down while she is at the hospital—and the young girl worries that fifth grade will be a nightmare. What can Chrissa do to stop bullying at her school? Can one girl make a difference by standing strong? In this well-crafted story, Mary Casanova tackles the issue of bullying with sensitivity, creating a story that readers will take to heart. Reviewer: Suzanna E. Henshon, Ph.D.
