Easy Target by Tim Shoemaker // Review

My Review: 

Previously homeschooled, Hudson has never had to deal with bullying until he starts public school and finds himself in an all out battle against the social hierarchy of students, but at what cost?

A well written middle grade read that takes a realistic look at bullying, and I thought did a good job of asking thought provoking questions. Hudson sees the problems and wants to help, he is quick thinking and has good intentions. I liked that this book looked at varying perspectives throughout, and even some surprising ones. Maggie was one of my favorite characters, I liked that she was thoughtful and cautious.    

Overall, I thought that this book got its point across well, while encapsulating it in an engaging story, with well developed characters and questions of faith. A great fit for the middle grade audience or even to read as a family to start discussions. 

I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
