Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my review in any way and the thoughts expressed are my own.

This story focuses on three boys and their experiences with bullying. I thought the title could be a little more obvious to the theme but it does reference a major part of the story. It was good to see how Carlo thought Danny was his friend until Danny started bullying him, it shows that bullying can come from the most unexpected places. The book would be good for children learning about bullying and the illustrations were good. In the end, the two boys realised a very mature way of dealing with bullying which felt unrealistic considering their age. It is a good thing for children to learn but might have worked better coming from the narrator instead. I give it 3/5.
