Product Description

While Larger-Than-Life Lara is a painful picture of the consequences of bullying, this story is also an engaging allegory of the life of Christ, a teaching tool for aspiring writers, and a reminder to kids in difficult homes that they are not alone.

Lara, who is very overweight, joins Mrs. Smith's fourth-grade English class in the middle of the year, and from the moment she walks in the door, she is bullied and mocked by her fellow students. The story culminates in a powerful scene that takes place at the end of the school play.

Readers will feel the pain, forgiveness, repentance, and consequences that occur throughout the story as students and teachers experience the worst and best in each other. Recommended for ages 8 to 12 years. Hardcover edition.

Publisher's Description

This isn’t about me. This story, I mean. So already you got a reason to hang it up. At least that’s what Mrs. Smith, our English teacher, says.

But the story is about ten-year-old Laney Grafton and the new girl in her class—Lara Phelps, whom everyone bullies from the minute she shows up. Laney is just relieved to have someone else as a target of bullying. But instead of acting the way a bullied kid normally acts, this new girl returns kindness for a meanness that intensifies . . . until nobody remains unchanged, not even the reader.

In a unique and multi-layered story, with equal parts humor and angst, Laney communicates the art of storytelling as it happens, with chapter headings, such as: Character, Setting, Conflict, Rising Action, Climax. And she weaves an unforgettable tale of a new girl who transforms an entire class and, in the process, reveals the best and worst in all of us.

This is a powerful and emotional story, which School Library Journal called “Thoroughly enjoyable and unexpectedly wry, . . . as intelligent as it is succinct.”
