After Katie gets caught teasing a schoolmate, she's told to meet with Mrs. Petrowski, the school counselor, so she can make right her wrong and learn to be a better friend. Bothered at first, it doesn't take long before Katie realizes that bullying has hurt not only the people around her, but her, too. Told from the unusual point of view of the bullier rather than the bullied, Confessions of a Former Bully provides kids with real life tools they can use to identify and stop relational aggression.

She meets with the principal, then weekly with a school counselor to learn more about “bullying behaviors.” To make up for the hurt she caused, she turns her journal of those meetings into a book about bullying, narrated in a believable first-person voice.
