The Offenders: Saving the World while Serving Detention/ Book Signing and Author Talk

Saturday, October 12

The Offenders: Saving the World While Serving Detention! By Jerry Craft A freak accident gives five middle school bullies super powers. But instead of transforming into cool super-beings, they take on the characteristics of the kids who they bully. Sure their abilities may be at an all-time high, but do they really have what it takes to save their school when their self-esteem is at an all-time low? The only thing they know for sure is they're about to learn one 'powerful' lesson in compassion! The 228 page book tackles a prevalent problem facing many of today’s youth, bullying. But instead of the typical tale of childhood bullying, the author decided to take a different approach on the issue. “I wanted to do a book about the kids doing the bullying, those who were bullies and didn’t know it.” Why are children bullying one another is the ultimate question Craft sought to answer with his book. All students ages 7-14 and their parents are invited.
