Daniel Abel is surprised when, instead of being punished for "pantsing" another eighth-grader, he is invited to become an ambassador of Mountview High at the school's upcoming open house. What he doesn't realize is that he is part of a social experiment on bullying being conducted by the local university.

He is a little nervous to learn he will be working with Jeff Kover, a tenth-grader with a reputation for being the biggest bully in the school. Daniel has never thought of himself as a bully. He just likes kidding around. But hanging out with Jeff will change Daniel's perspective on bullying and force him to examine his own behavior.

Resource Links - February 15, 2017
"Polak writes a true to life story that could be happening in any school...[she] treats the subject with dignity and grace...The text is well written for readers with a simpler reading level, but the novel would also appeal to readers with more reading abilities, mostly because the topic of the story is so relevant to schools today...A perfect novel containing a realistic story/plot which teen can relate to, suitable for public libraries and especially school libraries and classrooms."
CM Reviews
"Polak have developed very real and modern characters...Hopefully Bullies Rule will become a fixture in every school library and classroom. Highly Recommended."
