Reader, take note: In your hands, you’ll find everything from heartwarming accounts of friendships that are sure to last forever, to villainous tales of evil clowns. In Sorry! Can We Be Friends?, 826LA’s After-School Tutoring students come at a sometimes difficult topic—bullying—from all angles. In the first part of our book, students tapped into their gentler sides, crafting letters to loved ones and tales of kindness. But our students also channeled their darker sides, penning stories about villains who might—or might not—change their evil ways. Finally, our students joined forces to become the Anti-Bullying Avengers, writing collaborative stories about how average people can become heroes by standing up to bullies, or how bullies can resolve to become kinder souls. With Sorry! Can We Be Friends?, prepare to be inspired, spooked, and everything in between.
