In February of 2013, Standing Up, a well-produced movie version of this book was released. This timeless book was passed around my ninth grade class like wildfire in the early 90's and my 7th and 9th grader at home were engaged with the movie. Brock Cole's story that captures unfathomable bullying and admirable resilience is timeless.
Try the movie trailer to build interest!

I have personally read this book. It is perfect for readers who are older but at an approaching grade level reading level.
