Bubba and Giganto by Lea Schizas

Ms. Lea Schizas tells the story of Bubba, bullying, and friendships formed while in the ninth grade.Bubba arrives at a new school, his father moves for construction work. On the first day of school, Bubba steps off the bus, thus begins a tale of opening one’s mouth. What happens as a result of this action? Think you know, don’t think so. You’ll have to read this engaging tale to find out.

This is a story that children and their parents should read. This is a story about more than just bullying, or being bullied by someone. Many things happen in our schools; this tale is about Bubba, David, and Jason. There is a backstory, as to why Jason acts the way he does towards people. Right or wrong, Jason directs his taunting toward David.

Ms. Schizas has woven a tale that is easy to read, and contains living breathing characters we can all connect with, and the time we spent in school. I would recommend this book to all for a good read, also learning something about bullying, and those that bully.
