Posted, by John David Anderson  

This middle grade novel tackles the issue of bullying in a very accessible way. First the kids at Branton Middle School have their cell phones banned for inappropriate use, but when the kids turn to anonymous post-it notes to communicate, things get really ugly. Middle school can be rough if you’re the new kid or if you don’t have your own group and even when you do you still have to learn to be true to yourself and be a true friend.  Words can hurt, they can haunt you, they stick. If you’re lucky you have friends that stick too.

— From Heather Weirich Roy

Description


With multiple starred reviews, don't miss this humorous, poignant, and original contemporary story about bullying, broken friendships, social media, and the failures of communication between kids. From John David Anderson, author of the acclaimed Ms. Bixby's Last Day.

In middle school, words aren't just words. They can be weapons. They can be gifts. The right words can win you friends or make you enemies. They can come back to haunt you. Sometimes they can change things forever.

When cell phones are banned at Branton Middle School, Frost and his friends Deedee, Wolf, and Bench come up with a new way to communicate: leaving sticky notes for each other all around the school. It catches on, and soon all the kids in school are leaving notes--though for every kind and friendly one, there is a cutting and cruel one as well.

In the middle of this, a new girl named Rose arrives at school and sits at Frost's lunch table. Rose is not like anyone else at Branton Middle School, and it's clear that the close circle of friends Frost has made for himself won't easily hold another. As the sticky-note war escalates, and the pressure to choose sides mounts, Frost soon realizes that after this year, nothing will ever be the same.
