“Yaqui Delgado wants to kick your ass.”

That’s what some girl tells Piddy Sanchez one morning before school. Too bad Piddy doesn’t even know who Yaqui Delgado is, let alone what she’s done to piss her off. All Piddy knows is that Yaqui hates her—and she better watch her back because Yaqui isn’t kidding around.

At first Piddy just focuses on trying to find out more about the father she’s never met and how to balance honors courses with her weekend job at the neighborhood hair salon. But as the harassment escalates, avoiding Yaqui and her gang starts to take over Piddy’s life. Is there any way for Piddy to survive without closing herself off and running away from her problems?

In this poignant and all-too-realistic story from award-winning author Meg Medina, Piddy is forced to decide exactly who she is versus who others are trying to make her become—and ultimately discovers a rhythm that is all her own.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A powerful read! As tough and honest as its title, this novel takes an unflinching look at the unjust and cruel consequences of bullying. The story of Piddy Sanchez’s transformation is full of the kind of truth teen readers will instantly recognize. I highly recommend it.”

    James Howe, award-winning author of the Bunnicula series

  • “Medina perfectly captures the devastating impact of bullying—and the powerful influence of kindness in recovery.”

    Jo Knowles, author of Lessons from a Dead Girl

  • “Poignant, powerful, pull-your-heart-apart sad, snort-out-your-nose funny—a nuanced, honest telling of how courage and choice can triumph over the hell of being bullied.”

    Carrie Jones, author of the Need series

  • “Roxanne Hernandez voices the personalities of the cast in a way that gives depth to the characters, especially Piddy’s mom. As Hernandez depicts how bullying can erode a person’s entire sense of self, the listener can hear Piddy losing herself a little at a time. A worthwhile listen.”

    AudioFile

  • “A nuanced, heart-wrenching, and ultimately empowering story about bullying…Far more than just a problem novel, this book sheds light on a serious issue without ever losing sight of its craft.”
