Product Description


"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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sticks and Stones June 8 2004
By A Customer
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sticks and Stones June 7 2004
By A Customer
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.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Stuff May 5 2003
By Deena
The book isn't extremely long, but I really enjoyed it. I read it sometime last year. It's about this girl who is flamed by this guy who she didn't want to go far with. Suddenly her world is turned around, and everyone is calling her names behind her back and to her face, and she has a reputation as a slut. Out of anger I suppose the buy (who's name I forget) lashed out and and told everyone they had sex or something, and she soon gained a reputation as a slut. Sticks and Stones may sounds like an average teen novel, but it's definetly not Sweet Valley High. Beth Goobie writes in such a way that you forget you're reading a book....I recommend this completely. (Of course she's a local author so I haven't the slightest clue on how many people have read this.) I also encourage you to read some of her other books, Before Wings, Kicked out and The Colors of Carol Molev.
