This book, Sorry I’m Not Sorry, is the third in a series of books about bullying by Nancy Rue. One out of four students is bullied at school, and 85% of those situations never receive intervention. I love that the author has tackled this very important problem facing our children by writing a series of books told from three different perspectives. So Not Okay is told from the perspective of the bystander. You Can’t Sit With Us is told from the perspective of the victim, and this last book in the trilogy, Sorry I’m Not Sorry is told from the perspective of the bully.
Kylie Steppe is the popular girl at school. Her pack of girls follows her lead in ruling the school and bullying the underdogs. However, her world she’s created starts to crash in around her when she gets expelled from school for bullying and has to participate in mandatory counseling and volunteer at a camp for underprivileged kids.
Even though Kylie fights it every step of the way, deep rooted securities start surfacing as the inner thoughts she’s trying to stuff keep presenting themselves. Kylie gets a wake up call when she reads her own hateful words in an email she’s sent and when she becomes the victim of bullying on social media.
It’s a must read along with the other two books in this series. I think everyone would identify with at least one character, the victim, the bystander, or the bully. Check out the flipbook for a sampling of this book!

We have not had bullying, but some personal space issues and then friend drama (between friends, not between my daughter and friends thankfully) for my third grader.
