Bully, by Paulette Wyssbrod-Goltz

At the beginning of senior year, seventeen-year-old Mike discovers his best friend has been fooling him his entire life. Deep down, Mike knows Justin is a bully. It’s no secret in their small Texas town. Justin picks on other people, but they must not mind too much because they never speak up.

Not willing to ‘go along to get along with his buddy,’ Mike faces trouble when Megan, the love of his life, tells him that real friends stand up and help each other. But Justin’s behavior becomes increasingly erratic, and a truth is revealed that forces Mike to question his childhood bond.

Will Mike and Megan’s relationship hold up under the pressure of her expectations? Can Mike make the right choice in time to save his relationship with Megan? Or will his choice make him face the heartbreak of losing her?
