"Allie Finkle is the new girl at Pine Heights Elementary, and she's very excited. She already knows she likes her new fourth grade teacher Mrs. Hunter, and she's already friends with classmates Erica, Caroline, and Sophie. There is only one fly in the ointment of Allie's perfect new life: one of the girls in Allie's new class, Rosemary, doesn't like her. In fact, Rosemary says she's going to beat Allie up after school.

Everybody around Allie tells her their rules for dealing with bullies. But which are the right ones to follow?"[2]
