About How to Beat the Bully Without Really Trying by Scott Starkey

Rodney Rathbone knows how to attract trouble — and isn't afraid to run from it as fast as he can.  Like great comic cowards before him, poor Rodney can't turn around without encountering bullies, bad guys, and danger.  When his family moves to a new town, a lucky break turns his world upside down.  Suddenly everyone at his new school thinks he's actually brave.  Will Rodney be able to maintain the charade?  Author Scott Starkey takes us on a rollercoaster journey that will keep young readers — and adults — wanting more.  How to Beat The Bully Without Really Trying is equal parts suspense, humor, and adventure, written by an author who clearly understands what kids enjoy in a book.
