Solving Damian Dermite
How would you stop the most feared bully in school from humiliating your new best friend? An impulsive 11-year-old boy named Alex Thomas has a simple solution: you hurl your left over pizza at him. Although it does mean he will have to spend the sixth grade finding clever ways to escape a vengeful bully. Alex soon discovers that hiding in the boy's bathroom, stinking up the cafeteria, pulling the fire alarm, and running away are not the answers. When he finds himself standing with no clothes on in front of the entire school, Alex quickly realizes things have gotten way out of hand. With help from his brother, and a calculated plan in place, Alex faces his greatest fear...and finally solves Damian Dermite.
**This is a story based in Canada, where the names we give specific grade levels are different than the US. Primary students are in grade one to three. Junior students are in grades four to six, and intermediate students are in grades seven and eight. It's rare for Canadian schools to have junior high. Most schools go from Kindergarten to grade five or six, or from Kindergarten straight up to grade eight.***
