Maybe He Just Likes You review Å eBook or Kindle ePUB Barbara Dee explores the subject of #MeToo for the middle grade audience in this novel about experiencing harassment and unwanted attention from classmatesFor seventh grader Mila it starts with an unwanted hug on the school blacktopThe next day it’s another hug A smirk Comments It all feelsweird According to her fri. E ARC provided by EdelweissMila is anxious about starting middle school especially since things are tough at home Her mother seems to be having a tough time at work although she s not talking about it and also isn t getting a lot of cooperation with child support from Mila and her younger sister s dad Mila has grown a bit and her clothes are too tight but she doesn t want to say anything relying instead on a favorite fuzzy green sweater that is loose enough to also cover her tight pants This sweater gains some unwanted attention from a group of boys who want Mila to hug them or brush up against her sleeve It s just weird and she doesn t like it and lets the boys know But it still continues Making it even difficult is the fact that one of the boys is one whom her friend Zara likes Her friend Omi isn t uite sure what to do but her friend Max who was bullied during the last school year by other boys calling him gay presses Mila to tell an adult about the behavior Mila does but she has to talk to a male school counselor and isn t comfortable giving details The behavior is such that it flies under the teachers radars and it s Mila s slightly louder reactions that get the negative attention which doesn t make her feel any better The two things that are pleasant in her life are band class and a karate class that she is taking at a nearby gym while her mother has a free two week pass Things become worse at home when her mother uits her job so Mila doesn t want to bother her mother Finally one of the boys makes a comment right before the middle school band takes the stage for the concert and Mila can no longer be silent There are conseuences but also understanding teachers who want to make sure that the boys behavior stops for goodStrengths This was well done It s a difficult topic but it s the only book I ve seen other than the YA Moxie that deals with sexual harassment and about the only book that portrays realistic bullying Mila s confusion as to whether or not the boys were really doing anything was perfect and all middle schoolers will relate to the discomfort over clothing and changing bodies The situation at home is also handled well parents occasionally uit jobs and it s very concerning for middle school students I especially liked that the boys were finally dealt with in a constructive way that made them understand the effects their behavior had on Mila and that it wasn t just a joke Max is also a good character and he is commendable for encouraging Mila to talk to adults the way she encouraged him It s also nice to see a gay middle school character who isn t in the middle of a crisis All in all a well crafted important tale that is interesting to read as well as informativeWeaknesses I wish that the teachers especially the aide had been a bit approachable or that Mila had had one teacher with whom she felt safe We ve made a big push in our school to encourage our students to have a trusted adult in the building for instances such as Mila s and other types of problems What I really think Definitely purchasing and recommending
