Don't Mess with Coleman Stoops by Justin Lantier-Novelli - Guest Blogger Book Review

Coleman Stoops just had his twelfth birthday, but he’s not getting popular anytime soon. The kids in his grade call him “Stoopy”. He hates the cruel nickname almost as he hates himself for always managing to accidentally play into it. The clothes he wears, the hobbies he loves, and the way he behaves in school all contribute to his eternal low ranking as the butt of everyone’s jokes. Coleman’s a dork, a dweeb, a nerd. He’s the fool of the school.

So when the most popular kid in his class, B. Bradford Woffington III, approaches him with a proposition and a potential girlfriend, Coleman can’t help ignoring his instincts as they tell him not to trust “Trey”. He accepts the boy’s offer and begins the social and physical grooming that will make him fit for dating – gasp! – a real, live girl. No matter what happens though, Coleman can’t shake the sneaking suspicion that there’s something Trey isn’t being completely forthcoming about. What isn’t the most popular kid in school telling him?

Jennifer's Review
I thought this was a very good book. I liked it. 
It's about a boy named Coleman Stoops, or Stoopy, as he is known by the bullies. His friend narrates Coleman's story the way he tells it to them. 
Coleman is a husky boy who is constantly bullied and picked on, but one day one of the bullies decides to help him find a girlfriend. 
Does Stoopy get one? What is going on? Who is the narrator? 
Read this book if you've ever been bullied. I give it 4 stars.
