Description-

  • Sigrid Sugden is a Shrike, a member of one of the toughest group of girls in school. They are experts at blackmail, extortion and bullying their terrorized classmates. But one day, the Shrikes go too far. Sigrid realizes that their favourite victim, Prinny Murphy, is in real danger. She makes a decision that will save Prinny from danger but will turn the Shrikes anger and bullying against the former friend who betrayed them to the authorities. For Sigrid, this is a transformative moment. She wants to be a better person and begins to reflect on the events that led to her being a Shrike. Participating in their mean pranks made her feel powerful and safe. But now, she realizes she needs and wants to turn over a new leaf - make new friends and be kinder to others. But overcoming her badgirl image is a whole lot harder to do than she originally thought. No one likes her, no one trusts her - no one is willing to give her a second chance. But then an unlikely ally comes forward to help her convince the rest of the students at school that she really does want to be a better person - her former victim, Prinny Murphy.

    Gr 6-10-This follow-up to The Nine Lives of Travis Keating (2008) and The Present Tense of Prinny Murphy (2010, both Fitzhenry & Whiteside) focuses on the Shrikes-the trio of bullies who terrorize Prinny and her classmates with fists and blackmail. When the harassment goes too far, putting Prinny's life in danger, Sigrid goes against her friends to get help. She now becomes a target of the bullying, and her former victims do not wish to befriend her. Without bullying to let the mean out, Sigrid must confront the realities of her home life-absent parents and a stepfather who is there for her, but is dealing with his own issues. The narrator has always known her behavior was wrong, and her attempts to fix it repeatedly fail, but in her small Newfoundland village, they don't go unnoticed and slowly she's grudgingly accepted by others. The adults are partially ineffectual-mostly because the Shrikes knew how to not get caught-but they do try. Slowly the girl finds new truths about her classmates as she walks the uneasy path away from bullying. Sigrid's motivations and growth are believable and heartbreaking. The novel stands on its own merits, but kids will want to read the previous books to learn more about the lives and stories of the protagonist's classmates.-Jennifer Rothschild, Arlington County Public Libraries, VA
