Published book for young readers

Bullies and Peeps addresses the social issue of bullying. Meg is a bit of a misfit at school. She prefers nature to people. One day, her only friend joins a popular girl group led by Hannah, the most popular girl in the class. Meg finds a welcome distraction—a goose sitting on a nest of eggs in the school courtyard. Hannah and her girl group bully Meg as she watches and waits for goslings. No one is prepared for what happens after the eggs hatch.
