Believe, by Julie Mathison, teaches us what bullying is and how your friends can help you through it.  Melanie has a hard time at school because a girl called Karen won’t stop bullying her.  Sabrina, Melanie’s best friend, helps her through the bullying and helps teach Melanie how to stand up for herself.  When Melanie gets the lead role in Peter Pan, will the bullying stop?

Opinion: 

Believe is an amazing book and has become one of my favorites.  The way Julie Mathison, the author, tells Melanie’s story is so descriptive that you feel like you are in the book.  I went through the whole book and never wanted to stop reading!  The characters are wonderful and have such different personalities, from the class clown to a bully.  I would recommend this book for people ages 10+ because of the deep meaning of friendship.
