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.

    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!

    I dont agree with this whole thing, princess, but youre going to have to work with it for now.

    But Daddy

    He shook his head and I climbed into the backseat, but as soon as he got behind the wheel again, I started back in.

    This is so unfair. It wasnt all my fault.

    Other people dont see it that way. Youre going to have to play the game for a while.

    I dont want to play the game.

    Book: Sorry I'm Not Sorry by Nancy Rue, Thomas Nelson Publishers, 2015

    Genre: Realistic Fiction

    Target Audience: Girls 11-15

    Subjects: Bullying, Family Relationships, Friendship, Truth

    Summary: Fine. Kylie will jump through whatever hoops she has to in order to get back on the cheerleading squad. If that means meeting with this dwarf person to do a social studies project, shell do the project and get it over with. If that means assisting at a dance camp for little kids, shell get through it by dragging Izzy with her. But shes not sorry, not for a moment! Hoops can be jumped through but that doesnt mean she has to change. Except things are changing without her involvement. It seems all her former friends have turned on her. Photo-shopped pictures are floating around the internet citing Kylie as the true and only criminal in the whole bullying Ginger thing. And new pictures are coming, showing just how much shes not changing. Even though she is changing. It seems the bully is now the bullied.

    Notes: The third in the Mean Means Makeover Trilogy, Sorry Im Not Sorry gives the perspective of the bully. The first book looked at the situation from the perspective of the bystander and the second book was from the perspective of the bullied. This story picks up right where the second one left off. Kylies attacks on Ginger have finally come to the attention of the adults and are being dealt with. Kylie is sentenced to Community Service and tutoring with Lydia, the counselor who helped the girls in the first two books. Kylie does change in this book, due to a few things. First, she becomes a victim as well and learns how it feels to be on the attack as well as how it feels to have someone stand up for you when the Tribelet comes to her aid. Second, her mom also gets some counseling from Lydia and becomes more involved in her life. Third, one of the projects Lydia has Kylie do is write up a list of requirements for being her friend, the rules htat sort of govern their group and then compare it to the Bill of Rights, causing Kylie to see that shes not standing up for the freedoms of her friends, but taking their basic rights away. And lastly, her community service project gives her a chance to see herself in a young girl and Lydia helps her to look at it from the proper perspective. This book doesnt have a happily ever after ending where everything wraps up unrealistically for the character. It shows a real picture of what it might be like for someone to change from being the bully herself to supporting the anti-bullying movement. It also shows how bullies can be formed by example, by lack of proper correction and discipline, and by hurt. The spiritual elements are not real prevalent in this one. Lydia tells Kylie shell be praying for her and Kylie says a nanny used to do so as well. Lydia says she thinks thats why Kylie adapted so well to the change she encouraged God had been in her life for a long time and the nanny was probably still praying for her. And later, Kylie thanks God for her not being in the bully business anymore. Lydia also teaches her that one of the codes is from the Bible. At one point she tells Kylie she prays for her with every session, to be able to help Kylie. Those are the only references to anything spiritual though. However, the principles taught, like in the last books, are Biblical principles. The principles taught in this one are: Take your mask off (do not hide the truth or lie), No Rivals (Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, love your neighbor as yourself, do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit), Consider the smudge (dont take the splinter of out of your brothers eye before first removing the plank in yours), Dont pull the trigger/Have a creative one-liner (be alert and self controlled). There is one area I disagree with though: the idea that Kylie is not a bad person, she just does bad things. The Bible teaches in Jeremiah 17:9, Romans 3 and other places that we are bad. There are none that are good, none that are righteous. The book is trying to convey that God did not create bullies. Thats not who He designed Kylie to be. But the wording is a popular idea and I want to encourage adults to help young girls understand that they are bad not just bullies, but all of us. But thats not what God created us to be and He can transform us into what we were meant to be when we put our trust in Him for our salvation and let Him do His sanctifying work in our lives.

    I highly recommend this book to all young girls.

    Also of note, this book is part of a much bigger movement to stop bullying. The links at the bottom will direct you to the resources the author has created to help go to war against bullying because it is so NOT okay to ever bully anyone!

    Spiritual Content Recommendation Scale: 4/5

    Reviewer: J:-)mi

    Romans 12:2 Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is--His good, pleasing and perfect will.

    Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, He is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!

    Thank you to Nancy Rue for sending me a free review copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion. It was wonderful!
