The Misfits By:James Howe
I really liked this book because, it taught me many things like how little things can make a big difference. Like how the kids made a huge difference. They made it able for them to go to school and not get picked on or called names and they started the no-name week thing at school and gave that big speech and made it better for them.
The theme of this book is to never give up. This is the theme because in the book the kids were always getting bullied and there campaigns were also failing until Bobby gave the big speech and then all of them changed the whole act of bullying.

Copacetic: in excellent way

Addie is a very smart girl who gets picked on for being tall and extremely smart and shy and outspoken.

Skeezie is known as a "hooligan" because of how funny he acts.
Joe is a kid who gets picked on because he acts more like a girl than he does a boy.
The setting is in Paintbrush Falls, New York. At the school, the candy shop where they usually would meet to talk about there plan to end bullying. Another place it takes place at is at the department store and many other places.
