In this poignant story, a girl finds it funny when her classmate starts blushing on the school playground. Her friends laugh along with her, but one student takes the teasing too far. Torn between her sympathy for her classmate and her fear of the bully, the girl must make a difficult choice.

This heartfelt book will inspire readers to find the courage to take a stance against bullying and show compassion towards others.

It’s no big deal.
It’s something so small. No one else even sees it.
Only me. I point at Tommy’s cheeks.
“You’re . . . you’re blushing . . .”

I wink at Paul.
Paul grins at Freddy.
Lisa bursts out laughing.
We whisper color into Tommy’s cheeks.
From tomato to strawberry to cherry red.
“Leave me alone!” says Tommy with a sigh.


But there’s no stopping us.
“Do it again! Do it again!” we tell him.
