Eric is the new kid in seventh grade. Griffin wants to be his friend. When you're new in town, it's hard to know who to hang out with―and who to avoid. Griffin seems cool, confident, and popular.

But something isn't right about Griffin. He always seems to be in the middle of bad things. And if Griffin doesn't like you, you'd better watch your back. There might be a target on it.

As Eric gets drawn deeper into Griffin's dark world, he begins to see the truth about Griffin: He's a liar, a bully, a thief. Eric wants to break away, do the right thing. But in one shocking moment, he goes from being a bystander . . . to the bully's next victim.

Maybe it had been going on since the beginning of September-or maybe even for years-and Eric hadn’t really noticed. But now when he walked down the hall, Eric’s eyes were open. He saw that David Hallenback-that weird, awkward, mush-faced kid-was having a pretty rough time. I Dare You! seemed to be the hot new game that October.

Talk about Bystander

BYSTANDER is summer reading for my 12 yr-old grandson. I read it at his request; pleased that he asked. Being a long way from 12 yrs-old and never having been a boy, I can't predict how he'll like it.

Because plot is of a boy dealing with bullying, I can see why the school would want students to read it. It's an important topic and I hope there will be a lively discussion about it in school this fall.

My main reservation is that the protagonist pretty much does what adults wish they would do in these situations rather than how they actually feel and do. It won't help much if kids can't identify with the main character.

I found Bystander to be an insightful read. It holds the reader's attention through the struggles of Eric, the new kid in school, who wants to be accepted but not by the group of bullies whose leader has decided Eric should be in the bully clique. Although the book does illustrate the importance of stepping up to protect victims, it does not do it particularly strongly. I also found the ending to be unsatisfying and disappointing.

It was a pretty nice book. I had to read it for a summer assignment, and I will not lie, this book made me feel emotions. I enjoyed it.
Recommend to all.

This novel is an eye-opening book for educators and students alike. Although the format is simplistic, the message is not: Bystanding is Bullying. This book forces readers to reflect upon their own experiences, and think about their actions in the future. Students in middle school would benefit from reading this novel because the main character is a young boy who struggles with relatable issues including peer pressure, friendship, and relocating. Overall, I would give this book five stars because it is both educational and exciting. I would highly recommend this book for future educators and their students.

I bought this for my grandson to read it's the only mandatory book on his summer reading list. He enjoyed reading Bystander.

I have used this book with teens for tutoring purposes. Love the themes in the book, being an upstander, not a bystander. Tackles the subject of bullying in an interesting and suspenseful way.

Bystander should be a must read for all middle school students. As a middle school teacher, I really thought this book hit home with its bullying theme and the way students can go from being an "in" to an "out" student in a matter of minutes. I was disappointed with the way the book ended, as it was lackluster like the author didn't have any ideas how to end it.
This book was an amazing book for me to read. I am a kid going into seventh grade myself and this book tells me about bullying and other social issues that are happening in the world right now. I would recommend this book for all people. And I give this rating just because this book was an amazing book.
