Praise For Nice and Mean…
What’s in and what’s out? When is originality cool? Popularity and diversity are at the heart of the drama in this story of middle-school peer pressure. Sachi Parikh lies to her parents so that she can ditch Test Prep for Video class, where she works with Marina Glass, who wants to expose a bully on film. The story’s many clothing details will date quickly, but middle-school readers, whether they’re from the in-crowd or outsiders, will recognize the classroom-jungle warfare and the big issues behind what they decide to wear. - BOOKLIST, July 1, 2010
