Item Details

"One morning before school, some girl tells Piddy Sanchez that Yaqui Delgado hates her and wants to kick her ass. Piddy doesn't even know who Yaqui is, never mind what she's done to piss her off. Word is that Yaqui thinks Piddy is stuck-up, shakes her stuff when she walks, and isn't Latin enough with her white skin, good grades, and no accent. And Yaqui isn't kidding around, so Piddy better watch her back. At first Piddy is more concerned with 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 or running away?" -- from publisher's web site.

Sometimes someone just wants to kick your ass. It sucks, but what can you do? A lot, as it turns out. A light read on a serious subject.

This book surprised me in so many ways, it was powerful, uproarious, but most of all it was heart wrenching. I was drawn into the story so early on and I was able to really feel what the main character Piddy felt.

I read this book and is really good to teach people how they need to talk to someone before assuming they did something they didn't do.

NYPL Staff Pick
Piddy Sanchez attracts the attention of one of the meanest girls in school, and soon the bullying from Yaqui and her gang threaten to derail Piddy's whole life.

Great book. Meg Medina creates a believable world for her 10th grade protagonist, Piedad, aka Piddy. I definitely got sucked into this story, needing to know how Piddy would handle the girl bullying her and the other big questions nagging at her. Plus, it was great to see more Latinas in YA! Can't wait to check out more of Medina's books.

This was an awesome book. This wasn't just another book about bullying where all you read about is shoving and name calling. This felt real. Even the choices her friends made seemed realistic too. I've been this situation before ,but had the privilege of growing up with four older sisters who taught me a thing or two about defending myself--if know what I mean and it did not end well for that "bully." I felt bad for Piedad,and even the choice she had to make in the end was very brave. .... Not gonna lie, I've never heard or seen the name Piedad and did my best pronouncing it; its a very unique. I recommend this book for anyone who's been bullied or is being bullied.
