Yaqui Delgado Wants to Kick Your Ass (YA)


Book #49 Read in 2015
Yaqui Delgado Wants to Kick Your Ass by Meg Medina (YA)

Piddy has recently changed high schools.  Almost immediately, for no reason that she can think of,  resident bad girl Yaqui Delgado is rumored to want to fight Piddy.  Piddy begins to be bullied and harassed by Yaqui and her group of girls.  Piddy doesn't want to admit it and by not doing so, her grades begin to flounder and her personality changes drastically.  This book shows how difficult high school can be on students and the effect that bullying has on its victims.  It was a powerful read and I think high school girls especially would love it.
