Sticks and Stones

293722Jujube 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 labelled 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.

This book was a short story on basically how words and rumors can hurt people. The main protagonist in the story was able to come out on top of it all but many people arent so lucky.I would defiantly read this book.
