Amir, a second grader at Jefferson Elementary has had enough of the school bully, Frankie. He’s just not going to take it anymore! Amir and his classmates have been bullied by Frankie for far too long and they are ready to do something about it. Amir cannot walk around the school building without running into Frankie. If he has to go home one more day with a ripped shirt or with missing homework pages that Frankie has ripped out and thrown everywhere, Amir will scream. When the second graders learn what is really happening at their school, will it change their minds about Frankie? Will Amir be able to teach a valuable lesson about bullying to everyone at Jefferson Elementary?
Frankie is always looking for trouble and he finds it every time with Amir and his friends. He doesn’t mean to be so mean but just can’t help himself. Frankie is only doing to Amir what he sees everyone at school doing to each other. There is something behind Frankie’s mean streak alright, and it’s something big. It’s something that’s been shaking up Jefferson Elementary for a long time.
Meet the young children of Jefferson Elementary as they sort through the cycle of bullying, the overpowering emotion of anger, and the gratifying experience of positive problem solving.
