Max Quigley: Technically Not a Bully - by James Roy
NOT! Max stays just as big a jerk as ever, but the boys do become kind of friends. This book will spark good discussions about bullying, such as the fact that bullying isn't always black and white, and even nasty people aren't ALL nasty. It's interesting and unusual to read a book from the bully's point of view, though it can also be unsettling. This is an Australian book, so some references may be unfamiliar for American readers, and it may be tricky to find a copy, but I'd say it's worth the trouble.
