Product Description

Sorry I'm Not Sorry, book three in the Mean Girl Makeover Series tells the story from the perspective of the bully, showing kids that bullies aren't born bullies-and they certainly do not have to stay bullies. It is hard for tweens to imagine why a bully acts the way that they do. Sorry I'm Not Sorry shows us that we have the power to stop bullying through mutual understanding and acts of love.

Kylie Steppe, former queen bee of Gold Country Middle School (GCMS) has been expelled for bullying a fellow GCMS student. Without any other peers to torment, or friends to follow her, Kylie focuses on the person who stole her position at the top, Tori Taylor. While Kylie is plotting her revenge against Tory, she attends therapy sessions where she reveals some details that begin to explain why she finds power in tormenting her GCMS peers. After a tough year with bullying backfiring, will Kylie try to become more empathetic with her peers?

Recommended for girls, ages 9-12.

Publisher's Description

Bullies aren’t born mean—through the vicious cycle of mean, bullies are made.

According to the Ambassadors 4 Kids Club, one out of every four students is bullied—and 85% of these situations never receive intervention. Parents, students, and teachers have amped up solving the bullying problem for a networked generation of kids. 

Written by bestselling author Nancy Rue, each book in the Mean Girl Makeover trilogy focuses on a different character’s point of view: the bully, the victim, and the bystander. The books show solid biblical solutions to the bullying problem set in a story for tween girls.

Sorry I’m Not Sorry tells the story of Kylie Steppe, former queen bee of Gold Country Middle School. After bullying a fellow GCMS student, Kylie has been expelled—and she has to attend mandatory counseling. Without her posse to aid her and other peers to torment, Kylie focuses on the person who stole her GVMS popularity crown: Tori Taylor. As Kylie plots revenge on Tori, she attends therapy sessions, where she reveals a few details that might explain why she finds power in preying on her middle school peers. After a rough year with bullying backfire, will Kylie decide to become more empathetic with her peers?

It's hard for tweens to imagine why a bully acts the way she does. Sorry I’m Not Sorry shows girls that they hold the power to stop bullying through mutual understanding and acts of love.

Trim Size: 5.5 x 8.375

    Beautiful, but not much about God

    Typical Kylie: "I was going to be totally cool because, like my mom said, we were just there to humor her. I could do humorous. I could do cooperative. I could do irresistible. I could do anything."

    Everything has been taken from Kylie -her cheerleading position and her popularity - and it's all because of Tori, Ginger, and their so-called Tribelet that stands against bullying. Like Kylie ever really bullied. Whatever. As long as she still has her friends and her lawyer-dad figuring stuff out, this is all no sweat. But then her friends turn on her, she has to help out with six-year-old wanna-be dancers AND she's in constant contact with Tori and her group. Can life ever get better again? Or, even harder, can Kylie change from the "princess" she has been for so long?

    "Sorry I'm Not Sorry" is deep and powerful. Kylie is a great character that changes a lot and yet the change doesn't seem forced. Kylie's transformation is absolutely beautiful and is one of the best parts in the book. Her mentor gives her lots of good advice that can apply to many of us readers, like "there are no rivals." There wasn't much about God, which was a disappointment. Also, the ending seemed drawn out. However, it's still an awesome read.

    Bullying isn't a joke. It's real and it's out there. Sorry I'm Not Sorry is Nancy Rue's third book in the anti-bullying series. It is told from the bully's point of view. It shows how bullies can be made and how with some help they can soften up and learn to be themselves again.

    If you want some great fiction with an even greater message, you might enjoy this series. The first book - "So Not Okay" - is told from the bystander's point of view. "You Can't Sit With Us," the second one, is told from the bullied girl's point of view.

    Great Perspective on Bullies for Tween Girls

    Sorry Im Not Sorry by Nancy N. Rue is the third book in the Mean Girl Makeover series, which is published by Thomas Nelson. This fictional series is written for tween girls in grades 4-7.

    I enjoyed this book because it shows a unique perspective on bullying, and a good way to stop it. It is in the Mean Girl Makeover series, a series from three different sides of bullying; the bully, the bystander, and the victim. I appreciated the authors creativity to write a novel from each of these different standpoints, and combining them into a series where all the characters are connected; but each with their own different stories. I also liked being able to get into the bullys mind and step into her shoes. Another thing I liked about this book is the moral: bullies are made through people being mean to them and it is a vicious cycle that is rarely stopped, but it is possible to stop. In this case, Kylie Steppe is the bully and she has just been found out-and expelled. In addition, she is forced to attend mandatory counseling and therapy sessions. On top of all that, she discovers her ex-posse has turned on her and spreading rumors and blackmail all over social media. Eventually, she opens to her counselor and becomes friends with the very people she used to bully, defying the odds and joining the good side in an effort to stop bullying.

    This book, Sorry, I'm Not Sorry is written by Nancy Rue as the third book in a trilogy. When I saw the description of the book I thought it would go along with some research I was doing on being bullied. Instead it is from the bully's point of view. The writing is very good. Rue does do a good job portraying the bullying issue with middle/high school students. The series also includes one book, So Not OK, written from a bystander's viewpoint and You Can't Sit with Us from the victim.

    I believe that the author does a good job expressing what is going on and I would recommend the series to middle age to young adult readers.

    I was given this book by NetGalley and Tom Nelson's Children in exchange for my honest review.

    I'm keenly aware of the whole bullying epidemic since my husband and I serve in Children's Ministry. When we've talked with the kids about bullies and being bullied - we were shocked at how many of the children felt that they had been bullied.

    I recognize that this is not anything new. In fact, there is really nothing new under the sun, but it seems that the bullying can grow more and more devious as the cyber world grows. Kids that would not normally have the courage to say or do unkind things, easily clink on their Instagram accounts and Facebook accounts and post unkind and sometimes, down right hateful things.

    Nancy Rue's new book, Sorry I'm Not Sorry is the 3rd book in a series on bullying, told from the perspective of the bully. When we meet Kylie, she is being disciplined for her bullying actions. Because of her behavior, she is removed from the cheerleading squad, must volunteer at a dance camp for community service, and meet weekly with the school counselor, Lydia.

    I have to admit that the first couple chapters were extremely difficult for me to read. I was shocked that someone could think such heinous thoughts about others and even, say such careless things. After putting the book down for several days, I drudged on, and as Nancy continued to honestly lay out Kylie's thoughts, they didn't excuse her behavior but it began to make sense as we see the vital role her parents have and ways they have contributed to the way Kylie thinks and behaves.

    As the summer goes on, Kylie begins to change and must make choices to seek to encourage others rather than tearing them down. Ironically, in the midst of all of this, she finds herself, being bullied by the very girls she once called friends.

    As a parent of teen girls, I think this book about bullying and how difficult it is to stand up for what is right. With Lydia's prayers and direction, she learns to stand up for what she believes even as she struggles with what that entails.

    I would definitely recommend this book!
