SAVE ME A SEAT, by Sarah Weeks and Gita Varadarajan


The story: Dylan, the class bully, has been picking on Joe for years. Ravi’s family just got here from India, and although his English is “perfect”, none of the other kids can understand him. Soon, Dylan has both Joe and Ravi in his sights. They both realize they’d better do something or they’re going to be dead meat–but they never had any idea that the best plan would include the other victim. Still, it’ll be a long time before one of them tells the other guy to “Save me a seat” at lunch…or will it?


Mrs. Friend’s opinion: It’s always great when the bully gets what he deserves!  And it’s kind of cool when kids realize that friends can be found in unexpected places.
