Here is the Review by Jessyca Garcia for Readers’ Favorite:
“I chose to read For No Reason by Kathleen Gauer because my daughter has had a similar problem to Jamie’s with a boy in her class. In the book Jamie is being bullied by the new kid. Jamie wants the bullying to stop, but she does not want to get in trouble. I really liked For No Reason. When writing about bullying, it can go many ways. I was impressed with how Kathleen Gauer wrote the outcome of this story. It was a positive message, and gives children a new way to deal with being bullied, especially for my child who hates to have enemies. I also thought the illustrations in the book were very nice. They were full of color and displayed the scenes beautifully.
My 6-year-old also enjoyed the book. In fact, she thought it was written just for her. She loved that Jamie wore her hair in braids just like her. She also identified with Jamie when Brad was being mean to her on the playground. She loved it when Jamie started acting like different animals, which is another thing she has in common with Jamie. I really think that she thought Gauer was writing about her. Overall, this is a great book! I loved the message. This is exactly the type of book and message that I want my child to read. I am going to be recommending it to my daughter’s school librarian. I hope to read more of Kathleen Gauer’s work in the future.”
