Fascinating Journey of a Bully with a Surprising Ending Jun 16, 2008
This book was a page turner for me as it allowed the reader to follow the lives of middle school age kids into adult life. While these young people said and did many things which had some negative consequences, there were also some positive consequences many years later. It shows young people, parents, school educators and Christian workers how we need to be proactive in helping those bullied to use strategies to combat those doing the bullying. I highly recommend this book to anyone who has teenage children and those working with this age group! The author, Jennifer E. Calvert gave me an extra copy so I could donate it to a Christian school here in New Zealand. The head librarian wrote, "On behalf of all of us at Bethlehem College I wish to thank you most sincerely for the book you have donated. "Best Friends Forever" certainly has the potential to inspire the students and help them to gain confidence too. We especially appreciate your getting it autographed by the author! The book is sure to be well read, especially by the College age girls."(Grades 7-12) Rita F. Williams (New Zealand)
Best Firends Forever May 19, 2008
I read your book "Best Friends Forever" and I think it is great! I wish I had it when my kids were in middle school. They are in their 20's now. I think it should be required reading for every 7th grader. I believe it could really help alleviate school violence and teach kids how to deal with Bullies. I do have a niece who is 13 and just finishing 8th grade. I think this book would be great for her. She is very smart, young for her grade and a bit shy. She has been in a Christian school all her life but will be starting 9th grade at a public high school. Best Friends Forever will be a blessing to her. Thank You!
Excellent for anyone coping with the teen or tween years Jul 24, 2007
Jennifer Calvert's "BFFs" shows a real insider's knowledge of teens and tweens and their behavior, and it's no wonder -- Calvert has years of "on-the-ground" experience as a counselor and teacher at a North Carolina middle school. The book teaches moral and religious lessons without being preachy as we follow the tale of a girl who got picked on constantly in middle school, the friend she made and the two bullies themselves (a pleasant quirk here, that the bullies are not demonized but actually allowed to grow up in the book and change their own ways). It's a quick read, a fun read (easy for kids to get through as well) and one I can't recommend highly enough. Also would be very appropriate for church youth groups looking for something contemporary to study.
Great book! Jun 16, 2007
BFF has a great story line that can be used as a functional tool for teenagers and teachers alike. This should be required reading for every teenager. Congratulations Jennifer!
Good fiction and helpful problem solving Jun 9, 2007
Jennifer Calvert's book is a book that bears reading and re-reading. It is a captivating and heartwarming work of fiction and the reader is drawn into the story on the opening page. The book should be added to the mandatory reading list for middle school students and their parents because of the great help and direction it provides in solving personal problems. Ms Calvert's characters' interactions and their dialogue present problem solving strategies in easy to remember choices and steps and these will be remembered by the reader long after the story is over.
