Fran Lewis writes about issues that face so many children across the country. The issue of bullying has become more of a problem now that the Internet is a factor. Bertha, a thirteen-year-old teenage girl living in the South Bronx is having trouble dealing with everyday issues that children face in school today especially someone who doesn’t fit the so called popular mold. Bertha tries to find what will work for her.
After being wrongfully accused of misdoings she makes some bad choices before she learns to stand up for herself. This is a book for all teens and for adults who have children or work with children. I highly recommend Bertha and Tillie sisters Forever.
