Have you ever been bullied, as a child we have and it can actually take its toll and ruin your life. There is so much in the news about, kids killing themselves because they were bullied in school.
‘Lean But Not Mean’ was written to combat the growing issue of youth obesity and the negative thought processes that come with it. But don’t be fooled – there isn’t a doctor or youth counselor on sight; just a rip-roaring adventure as one young boy steps up to win big against bullying.
It’s the start of seventh grade, and Jonny knows it’s going to be a year of epic problems. There’s the gang: Steve the Peeve, Pete the Cheat, and Liz In Your Biz. These bullies live to torment Jonny. There’s also Brenda, the new girl who lives near Jonny. If the gang sees the both of them together, they’d think of a herd of buffalo. But Brenda has information that Jonny needs! When a fitness program visits Jonny’s school, he realizes it’s up to him to change his life for the better. Despite a majorly embarrassing video uploaded to Facebook, Jonny perseveres with his plan. He hopes to make new friends, lose weight, try out for the basketball team, and earn himself a great dog, if he can convince his parents. But first, he needs to outsmart the bullies. Find Your Victory! Many times we self talk ourselves into believing the things playing in our mind or the words people say to be mean: “I never win!” “I’m such a looser!” “They will never like me!” “I don’t care about anything!” This is an inspirational and motivational book for anyone trying to beat the odds and win big in the end!
