In the tradition of the mega successful DIARY OF A WIMPY KID and DORK DIARIES, JOURNAL OF A SCHOOLYARD BULLY: Cyberbully by Farley Katz chronicles the life of Niko Taylor, habitual trouble-maker. For the second time in the series, Niko Kayler makes a triumphant return from bully rehab and must once again right his wrongs--but what happ ens when the tables are turned?

After his mom transfers jobs and towns, Niko Kayler, notorious calculating bully, gets a second chance to be good, or be evil. Though he tries to contain himself, Niko stumbles onto the world of cyber bullying, harnessing the power of cell phones, facebook, and some technology he invents to covertly torture his fellow classmates. Things seem to be going well for Niko until the technology is turned against him and Niko learns what it's like to be on the wrong side of the cyber bullying.
