Three popular girls bully an outcast student named Ivy. When their government teacher finds out what is going on she puts the three bullies on (mock) trail for bulling Ivy. Will the victim get revenge or will the bullies come out on top?

This is a great book for students who can follow a story that has many different narrators. Students get the chance to learn about bullying through different perspectives.
