As long as there have been girls in schools, there have been cliques -- a particularly malicious and subtle form of bullying that isn't always recognized for what it is. And with the growing role of social media, their mean-spirited goals have only become easier to achieve.
Cliques: Deal with it using what you have inside, the latest book in the Deal With It series, offers young readers up-to-date discussions about: distinguishing groups from cliques, inclusion/exclusion, gossip, cyber-bullying, self esteem, and peer pressure. The book directly addresses the problem of cliques, and provides many practical tips on how to identify, confront, and overcome it -- with style. The text is written to be comfortable for every reader, whether on the inside making trouble for someone else, on the outside, or a bystander wondering what to do. Quizzes, comics, and graphic novel-style illustration help make this book a fun and accessible way to approach an often difficult-to-address problem.
