Tiny Angel by Nancy Carty Lepri
This is a cute book for your tweens. the theme is bullying and friendship along with peer pressure. Lepri helps the reader see that being in the "in crowd" isn't always what it's cracked up to be. This is a very good message for those in between years when your child wants to fit in but can't find his/her click. It can be a hard road to travel alone. Tiny Angel will help the reader see that sometimes it isn't good to be in the "in crowd". It's hard to turn the other cheek and take a stand. While this was a very cute book I must stay true to my language code (see code here) and let you know there are some words in this book that I consider curse words.
When her dad is transferred to a new town, Macy Carver leaves behind her best friend and everything she knows. Suddenly she is the new girl…alone and bullied. An unexpected flash announces guardian angel Jody, who teaches her how to fit in and become a forever friend.
