Publisher's Summary

Barbara Dee explores the subject of #MeToo for the middle grade audience in this heart-wrenching - and ultimately uplifting - novel about experiencing harassment and unwanted attention from classmates.

For seventh-grader Mila, it starts with some boys giving her an unwanted hug on the school blacktop. A few days later, at recess, one of the boys (and fellow trumpet player), Callum, tells Mila it's his birthday, and asks her for a "birthday hug." He's just being friendly, isn't he? And how can she say no? But Callum's hug lasts a few seconds too long, and feels...weird. According to her friend, Zara, Mila is being immature and overreacting. Doesn't she know what flirting looks like?

But the boys don't leave Mila alone. On the bus. In the halls. During band practice - the one place Mila could always escape.

It doesn't feel like flirting - so what is it? Thanks to a chance meeting, Mila begins to find solace in a new place: karate class. Slowly, with the help of a fellow classmate, Mila learns how to stand her ground and how to respect others - and herself.

From the author of Everything I Know About You, Halfway Normal, and Star-Crossed comes this timely story of a middle school girl standing up and finding her voice.

you should really read it

The book really points out of how bad bullying it is in middle school and how people need to take the kids seriously because it will damage their mind and emotions. That bullying and harassment is not ok of what ever reason and how young or old they are even if they are like 9 or 10. It still needs to taken seriously.

a great perspective

As we grow up we often forget how a teenager has to deal with the same issues but in a world we're they sometimes feel unheard. This is a great book for a teenager and their grownup to read together to start the conversation about sexual harassment at school- cause it does happen.

Too good!!!

I loved this book!!! It teaches you how to handle boys when they are doing thing you don’t like. And it tests friendship. I think this book should be read by boys and girls. I told my friend that she should read it, she said ‘I love this book’ And I talked about puberty. . .
And how to deal with it. And to never have ANY ONE make you feel uncomfortable about your body.
