By Megan on June 4 2004
Format: Paperback
In the book Sticks and Stones there's a girl named Jujube.She went out with a boy named Brent.Brent didn't like her he just wanted to have a girl to mess around with so he dumped her and told everybody rumors about her.She was really upset and she told her mother about it,and started crying.
I really like the book because it was realistic and it was my type of book.It was really interesting.I didn't like the part when Jujube started to cry because Brent was talking about her.Also I liked when Sophie throws the hackeysack at Brent and it hit him on the butt.
I recommend this book to middle school kids because it tells "Don't judge people on what they look like."Also it talks about how people get hurt inside really bad.

Format: Paperback
Jujube becomes the target of a vicuous gossip and bathroom wall grafitti when her dance date doesn't deny the rumor that she slept with him on the their first date. Refusing to become a victim, she uses her class assignment on Ways We Communicate to fight an administration that refuses to take the matter seriously.
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.

Format: Paperback
Sticks and Stones is a book about a girl who gets back stabbed by her so-called friend. One little action changed her whole life. Throughout the book you will find out how she tries to fix her life.
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.

Format: Paperback
The story is about a girl that thought about having sex and quickly changed her mind. The girl's name is Jujube and we never really get her real name. When she says "no" to her date, the rumors just start spreading that she is a "slut". Fortunately, she meets Carlos and he is nice and helps her out.
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.
