"One morning before school, some girl tells Piddy Sanchez that Yaqui Delgado hates her and wants to kick her ass. Piddy doesn't even know who Yaqui is, never mind what she's done to piss her off. Word is that Yaqui thinks Piddy is stuck-up, shakes her stuff when she walks, and isn't Latin enough with her white skin, good grades, and no accent. And Yaqui isn't kidding around, so Piddy better watch her back. At first Piddy is more concerned with trying to find out more about the father she's never met and how to balance honors courses with her weekend job at the neighborhood hair salon. But as the harassment escalates, avoiding Yaqui and her gang starts to take over Piddy's life. Is there any way for Piddy to survive without closing herself off or running away?" -- from publisher's web site.… (lisätietoja)

middlegrade/teen fiction. Great characters and a high school bullying experience that is all too real, but fortunately ends happily, thanks to Piddy's friend Rob (who is, himself, being teased/called a homosexual) giving school officials an anonymous tip. Aside from not getting along with her schoolmates, Piddy also gets into a situation with another boy that could very well have left her pregnant (parents, talk to your kids about setting boundaries before they get in these situations!) but, also fortunately for her, it stops before it gets much past 2nd (or is that 3rd?) base.

Really great novel about life as a teenager. Piddy is a smart Latina who is being bullied at school. As the bullying continues, Piddy begins changing in heartbreaking and self-destructive ways. Medina creates an incredibly realistic character and we understand why she does what she does, even though we don't want her to do them. ( )

Piddy Sanchez isn't happy about having to switch high schools in tenth grade - and she's even less happy when she's informed that "Yaqui Delgado wants to kick your ass." Piddy doesn't know Yaqui, but that doesn't matter: Yaqui's after her. Piddy doesn't want to fight, but Yaqui finds her anyway, and Piddy is afraid to go back to school. Absences pile up as Piddy tries to figure out what to do. Her old friend Mitzi moved from their Queens neighborhood to Long Island and is swept up in her new school life with new friends; Piddy tells her mother's best friend Lila some of what's going on, but swears her to secrecy. Finally, the bullying comes to the school administration's attention via the anonymous reporting box.

Quotes

"Nobody gets happy the same way. That's what's interesting." (Lila to Piddy re: telenovelas, 49)

A lot of the salon women tell me this: "You've become a woman." None of them ever sounds too happy about it. (63)

"When do I get to know the story of my own life?" (Piddy to Lila, re: her missing father, 67)

I don't even know I'm in big trouble until it has swallowed me whole. (71)

I've never been so mean to her, but now all I want is to make her feel small. I need her company down here at the bottom of this pit, where maybe she can hug me and tell me it's all right. (83)

Talking about a secret is like finding a way out of a cave, isn't it? You can't be sure whether you're going deeper in or climbing free. (236)

I've been thinking lately that growing up is like walking through glass doors that only open one way - you can see where you came from but can't go back. (255) ( )

I think that this was one time when I couldn't really enter into the world of high school & teenagers - intellectually, I could understand Piddy's reluctance to "tattle" but my adult brain was screaming for her to tell. The characterizations and setting were excellent so I feel a bit mean not giving this book a higher rating. ( )

Realistic fiction, this novel will raise your blood pressure as you want to help Piddy survive.

Piddy's mother has had it with their apartment building. It's falling apart and unsafe. They move to a better place, not too far away, but Piddy has to change schools. Piddy, a pretty girl who dances and moves well, becomes the target of Yaqui Delgado. As the reader, you never meet Yaqui. You know her as well as Piddy does, which is not at all. Yaqui sees Piddy as competition. She thinks her boyfriend likes Piddy, so she plans on making Piddy's life miserable. A good student, Piddy fears what can happen to her and her grades drop. She becomes a different person because she doesn't know how to handle fear like this. Her best friend has also moved away and it's an hour subway ride to visit her. Her life seems to be going great, which makes Piddy feel even worse.

As the novel progresses, you meet Piddy's mom and aunt who are devoted to her, but their lives are not easy. Piddy's mother works a low-paying job and expects Piddy to have a better future. Piddy wants a better future--she's smart and she wants to work with elephants. Her aunt possesses street smarts and begins to suspect what might be going on. Eventually, something has to be done because Piddy has spiraled so far down that she may not find herself again.

Overall, the novel has a great message; I also like the comparison with people in the old building. Running can be the best option, the smart option. I was frustrated a lot--probably because I'm an adult--and I kept telling her what to do. FINALLY, she follows my advice at the end of the novel and there is hope. I also like the teachers and administrators at Piddy's school--their help and solutions and knowledge are truly accurate to real life. There's only so much help, but there IS help. There are Yaquis at every school, and we can only try to document and hope for help. I think a lot of students will really enjoy this novel. We don't have it at our school, but you do have access via Overdrive. ( )
