Summary
In a government class three popular girls undergo a mock trial for their ruthless bullying of a classmate. "I with VY: I told Ms. Gold about how The Evil Three have been after me, feeding off me since fourth grade. MARCO: It isn't a very pretty story, so if you're looking for 'nice,' you better ask someone else. ANN: We just have to come up wiht some witnesses for our side. Think! Does anyone owe you any favors? BRYCE: I figure, Dude, why not make a little spare change on the side? A buck a bet. All's I has to do was explain that liable was civil for guilty, and they swarmed like flies." Eight first-person narrators give different versions of the same event. Lessons about the inner workings of the judicial system pale beside the insights into human nature. With pathos and a great deal of humor, Amy Goldman Koss keeps you turning pages
