Overview

How to Beat the Bully Without Really Trying (How to Beat the Bully Series) by Scott Starkey

When luck gives a new kid a false reputation as a tough guy, can he find the strength to live up to his image?

Rodney Rathbone is a self-admitted coward. Things scare him, and he can’t help it. So naturally he’s terrified when he moves to a new town and the bully is ready to pounce. But just as Rodney is about to flee, a baseball flies in from out of nowhere and knocks out the bully. Now everyone thinks Rodney’s invincible—when really he feels just the opposite. Can he figure out how to live up to his new reputation and make friends along the way?
Told with warmth and heart, this debut novel from a middle-school teacher will speak to the hidden insecurities—and strengths—of every middle-grade reader.

An amazing book. A kid lucks out when moving to a new state, given a false reputation and is now wanted as dead by the meanest bully. A funny story with a little romance involved. A good read. The people on the front are Rodney, on the shoulders, Slim, the fatter one, and Rishi, the brown dude.
