Sorry I'm Not Sorry ~ Mean Girl Makeover #3 {Book Review}

Sorry I'm Not Sorry 
Mean Girl Makeover

230 pages 
Recommended age 8-12

"Bullies aren’t born mean—through the vicious cycle of mean, bullies are made."

Little about this book:
Sorry I'm Not Sorry, book three in the Mean Girl Makeover Series tells the story from the perspective of the bully, showing kids that bullies aren't born bullies-and they certainly do not have to stay bullies. It is hard for tweens to imagine why a bully acts the way that they do. Sorry I'm Not Sorry shows us that we have the power to stop bullying through mutual understanding and acts of love.

Kylie Steppe has always been the queen bee.  But when Kylie's mean girl ways get her expelled for bullying fellow students, Kylie is forced to attend mandatory counseling and volunteer at an arts summer camp for underprivileged kids.   Determined to get back in school and , more importantly, back on the cheer leading squad, Kylie plans to fake her way through counseling. But when Kylie' posse turns on her and she find herself the victim of a bullying campaign on Instagram, Kylie is forced to face why she's known as the queen of mean.  

Written by bestselling author, Nancy Rue, each book in the Mean Girl Makeover trilogy focuses on a different character's point of view: the bully, the victim, and the bystander. The books, base on Scripture, show solid biblical solutions to the bullying problem that can actually help girls.

I review for BookLook Bloggers

According to the Ambassadors 4 Kids Club, one out of every four students is bullied—and 85% of these situations never receive intervention. Parents, students, and teachers have amped up solving the bullying problem for a networked generation of kids.

All opinion are my own. 

Sorry I'm Not Sorry is the third in the Mean Girl Trilogy, this one giving the perspective of the bully. The first book talked about the perspective with the bystander, and the second one about the perspective of the bullied one.  This book is a fiction story about tween girls and how bullying affects them and how they are able to overcome and cope with this situation. This book shows why there is the "need" to bully and how to over come it to not be the bully everyone fears to talk wrong to.  This book slowly shows why Kylie acted the way she did and how she is dealing with who she has become. The Mean Girl Trilogy doesn't excuse bullying but does help develop a understanding why bullies behave as they do.  I would recommend this for anyone with tween girls.
