    June Book Club: “So Not Okay”

    Happy summer, beautiful PI Girls!

    Now that the school books are packed away, what are your plans this summer? I hope you bless yourself with some rest and fun, and I pray you will bless others this summer too. One way I know you can help is to make sure you read this month’s Book Club selection: So Not Okay by Nancy Rue. It’s the first novel in the “Mean Girl Makeover” series about middle school girls and how mean they can be – and it delivers an excellent message about how we can all help stop bullying.

    It truly breaks my heart when I read stories in the news about young girls who have taken their own lives because they were bullied so badly. Bullying has to stop, and I think So Not Okay can help us talk about ways we can get involved to end the cruelty. I know the book’s characters are only in sixth grade, but please don’t let that stop you from reading it. Even as an adult, I know I am going to enjoy this story and love talking with you about how we can put the important truths in it into practice. Because even if you are way past middle school, like I am, I bet you remember exactly what it felt like to be bullied or to feel helpless as you watched others get bullied. Maybe, to your shame, you were even part of a group that bullied.

    Author Nancy Rue has written tons of best-selling books for tween and teen girls, so she knows how to create stories and characters that grab you right away and keep you reading. In So Not Okay, the girls who have been bullied – Tori, Ginger, Winnie, Ophelia, and Mitch (for Michelle) – learn how to stand up to the mean girls in their class without running away or taking revenge. They don’t become mean girls themselves but instead learn to handle the situation by applying some rules that are actually biblical, without being preachy (like the Golden Rule).

    So Not Okay gives us a chance to remember the role we played and our experiences from adolescence and gain some new insights that can help us forgive others – or maybe even forgive ourselves. And I think it will be an excellent tool to help younger girls through those tough middle school years.

    So let’s read So Not Okay together and talk about it this month. You can ask for it at your local Christian bookstore or order it here.

    Girls, if you or someone you know is being bullied, it needs to stop now! Too many lives have been lost. If you are being hurt or fear that you might hurt yourself, PLEASE tell an adult you trust immediately. You can do it. I will be praying for you.

    Happy summer fun, my sweet girls,

    Nicole
