YA-This translation of the novel Penguin Books leaves much to be desired, though the story itself is timeless. A timid boy is bullied beyond endurance by two nasty girls, misunderstood by his teachers, and undervalued by his mother. After enduring schoolyard torture and being falsely accused by his tormentors, Simon suffers a final, life-threatening attack. Although he ends up in the hospital and the girls' guilt is discovered by the school authorities, the suspicion that he was also a culprit is never really lifted. This vaguely unsatisfying conclusion is sadly realistic and most adolescent readers will sympathize with the injustice of it all.
