One BAD Thing
John Goff’s new book, One Bad Thing is a good thing. Since its release in November, it has been flying off the shelves. The book tells the story of when Peter I. Gallagher, the new kid, arrives at Lincoln Middle School; Max Kingsley greets him with his well known, “this is my school” speech. Max’s approach becomes the final straw for bystander John Fog who has been observing Max for many years. When John confronts Max, he challenges John to do “One Bad Thing”. In turn, he will stop bullying kids forever. Intrigued by the deal, John sets out to find the one thing he can do to “save” the school and his classmates from the wrath of Max. Surprisingly John is faced with challenges he never expected.
One Bad Thing is a valuable tool for students, teachers and parents addressing important subject of community, friendship and bullying in a story of acceptance, respect and communication. Check our website for reviews, excerpts from the Foreword written by bestselling author, John F. Eliot, Ph.D. and ordering information.
