Free sample

A visit to his beloved grandfather helps give Justice some ideas about bullying and how he might deal with it. When Trey bullies him and also attacks Charity, Justice can't understand why. He's afraid to tell anyone-his mother, his teacher, or the school principal-for fear of making things worse. Then on a family visit to their home reserve, Justice helps his mushum (grandfather) fix his snowmobile and finds the courage to talk about Trey. Through Mushum' stories and actions, he begins to understand why people bully and some possible ways to deal with them. There' no one simple, sure-fire solution in this honest and compassionate story, but Justice no longer feels quite so alone at school or on the street.

About the author

Lori Saigeon is an elementary school teacher, living and working in Regina, Saskatchewan. Her interest in children's literature stems from reading first to her students and then to her own children. It was while teaching in inner-city Regina that Lori noticed a lack of fiction geared for urban children, particularly those growing up in an small prairie city and most especially those with a First Nations/Metis background. Lori also noticed that many children' novels "glossed over" the realities of some children's lives. She felt that many children need a place in which to see their own issues resonating. That is, they need to feel that the stories they read are true to life. Lori was born and raised in Regina, where she has been writing since she was a child. Her first book-length story was "The Flying Mouse," written in grade 6. She also wrote poetry for most of her childhood. Lori is married and is inspired by her three wonderful, school-age children.
