My Review: Ty is a typical, average kid whose life begins to unravel. His parents are divorced. Kids at school bully him mercilessly. It gets to the point where Ty is so hopeless and lonely, he begins to skip school. When he meets an older skater named Peacock, things begin to get better. Find out how Ty triumphs over bullies and finds the courage to stand up for himself.

Ty the Bull is a collaborative effort by Rex, the child author who uses his own experiences to help other children know they're not alone, and established authors Brenda Perlin and K.D. Emerson. Told from Rex's unique perspective, this book is heartfelt, inspiring, and a must-read for kids 8 years and older. Bullying has a become a huge problem in our schools, and there are few kids who haven't been touched by this issue in some way or another. Ty the Bull tackles the issue in a honest way that will break you heart, but at the same time, uplift you. Best of all, since this book is written for kids, by a kid who knows what he's talking about, it's a story kids will relate to.

My Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
