"At a time when we hear so much about bullying in schools, Sticks and Stones will encourage youngsters to find positive ways to fight back. Recommended." (Canadian Book Review Annual 2003-01-01)
"Presents a quick glimpse of teen characters in contemporary settings...certainly deals with a timely and common problem, and will appeal to the reluctant reader." (KLIATT 2002-07-01)
“This novel is an easy to read book with strong dialogue...Students will be interested in the character of Jujube and...the situation will be a familiar one.” (Resource Links 2003-01-01)
"The high interest plot works - the action starts right away and the story is filled with gossip, tears, and righteous retribution." (VOYA 2002-10-01)
“Demonstrates that hi-lo books do not automatically have to be of lesser literary quality. By launching the new hi-lo series with titles of already proven quality and interest from well-established YA authors, Orca Soundings are off to a fine start. Highly Recommended.” (CM Magazine 2002-09-06) --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
From the Back Cover
"What do you think, Scott-a seven?" Scott looked me up and down. "Maybe on a good day." Jujube is thrilled when Brent asks her out. She is not so happy when the rumors start flying at school. Pretty soon her name is showing up on bathroom walls and everyone is snickering and sniping. When her mother gets involved, Jujube's reputation takes another hit. Deciding that someone has to take a stand, Jujube gathers all the other girls who are labeled sluts-and worse-and tries to impress on her fellow students the damage that can be done by assigning a label that reduces a person to an object.See all Product Description

What I liked about the bookwas that it was just like a high school problem. I also liked that it was very realistic. I really liked the fact that I could visualize the characters.
I would recommend this book to 7th graders because I think they would get it more than younger students.
I like that the girl doesn't let anything get her down. I also liked it because it is stuff that happens in real life. Lots of high school girls get pregnant and end up ruining their lives.
I will recommend this book to everyone because it it is a realistic book. I especially think high school students would like this book. This could be a lifetime experience for readers.
Sticks and Stones is part of Orca's Soundings series. Written by award winning Canadian authors, the short themetic novels are designed for classroom use with special appeal for the reluctant reader. Large print type and simply constructed sentences combine with a flashy neon title and striking color photograph to hook. Characterization is a bit flat, perhaps because of the brevity of the novels, but the plot is strong (if not complex) in both novels. Sticks and Stones has a sympathetic character and universal theme. Based on real life events, are ideal for discussion and could even create a neat segway into current events. Highly recommended.
