Bullying has become a nationwide problem. Oftentimes, young children are bullied by people who they considered their friends. In this story, Olivia and Mya start off as best friends, even spending nights at one another’s house, but jealousy gets in the way and changes that.
Without warning, Mya starts treating Olivia differently and she has no idea why. Her feelings are hurt, but she tries not to let Mya get to her. Her attempts fail because, eventually, Mya’s bullying affects her in the worse way. Mya won’t understand how her actions affect others until she’s the one being bullied.
