Bluford High – The Bully by Paul Langan


Langan, Paul Bluford High – The Bully, 190 pgs. Townsend Press, 2002. Language - PG , Sexual Content - G; Violence – PG13 ; High school is tough enough for Darrell Mercer. He isn’t very tall or strong, but at least he has his friends to back him up. Mid year Darrell and his mom have to move from his hometown in Philadelphia to California. A new school means new challenges for Darrell, including a bully. Darrell has to learn either how to deal with this bully or spend the next four years in fear. I read this book in a day because it did a wonderful job of keeping my interest; I just had to know how Darrell would overcome his fears! Langan’s writing will feel real to the teens, but does not include foul language, sex, or over the top violence.
