What is included with this book?
Because words can sometimes hurt you.
Noah’s the quiet type, which makes him a great friend for Veronica. She chats. He listens. She gabs. He nods. Perfect!
So when Veronica spots Noah getting teased, she decides that if he won’t speak up for himself, she will! What she doesn’t count on is that the teasing will turn on her, making confident Veronica feel embarrassed about her clothes.
But when Cora’s makeover only makes the name-calling worse, Veronica and Noah know just who to call—the one and only problem-solving group, The Fix-It Friends!
The second adventure in The Fix-It Friends chapter book series anchors humor with lots of heart, as the group learns to deal with teasing and bullying.
Includes a toolbox of expert advice on how to handle teasing!
