Title: BATTLE OF THE BULLIES Author: Fenyx Blue Publisher: Wisdom Works, LLC. Pages: 301 Genre: Young Adult Fiction
Ebony, Eris, and Emani Robertson have been through so much more than most high school freshmen. When they were younger, they survived a school shooting that killed their friend and left their oldest sister unable to speak. After giving homeschooling a try, they enroll in a promising new academy, hoping for the best.
The Robertson triplets soon discover, however, that their new classmates are anything but kind. A mysterious group of bullies known as the Dimes rules the hallways and spreads fear everywhere they go. All three sisters end up being targets of the gang and have to find a way to defend themselves. Can they bring down the Dimes while trying to make it through the ninth grade?
Bold, Loving, Unapologetic, and Evolving are words to describe Fenyx Blue.

My Take: This is a story of a family of triplets and their big sister who have lived through a major tragedy in their old school of a bombing and then are targeted at their new school by the secret bullying club of the Dimes. But what the Dimes didn't count on were the love and got each others backs no matter what of the girls and how they won't let anyone and I mean anyone bully their sisters. They each use their unique talents to help their sisters out and stand up for each other as well as their friends. This was a heart warming story of family togetherness and standing up for what is right. I enjoyed it a lot and wished it had be written when my kids where still in school.
I received a review copy of this book from Pump Up your Book tours and was not required to write a positive review.
