"Riyani Patel’s social issues novella for young adults and middle-schoolers, The "Terrible" Bullies, is a motivational look at bullying and how students can get involved with parents, teachers, and principals in dealing with the issue. Patel’s characters learn from each other and discover that often bullies have been themselves bullied in the past. Her story is well-written, and the plot moves quite nicely. Patel’s characters are authentic; their stories resonate, and their attempts to break out of the cycle of bullying are inspiring. The "Terrible" Bullies is most highly recommended." -Jack Magnus for Readers' Favorite
