Ebony, Eris, and Emani Robertson have been through so much more than most high school freshman. When they were younger, they survived a school shooting that killed their friends and left their oldest sister unable to speak.
After giving home-schooling a try, they enroll in
a promising new academy, hoping for the best.
The Robertsons soon discover, however, that their new classmates are anything but kind. A mysterious group of bullies known as the Dimes rules the hallways and spreads fear everywhere they go. All three sisters end up being targets of the gang and have to find a way to defend themselves.
The triplets couldn't be more different, but their loyalty to each other and to their school never fails. Along with a diverse group of friends, the Robertsons do everything they can to uncover their identity of the Dimes and restore order to the school. As if their lives weren't complicated enough, they also get sucked in to a much bigger game-discovering who was responsible for the attack on their old school.
Can they bring down the Dimes and bring the murderer to justice, all while trying to make it through ninth grade?

REVIEW By LAWonder10:
The Battle f the Bullies is a disturbing, much needed book addressing the intense problem off bullying in many different forms.This is a problem faced through the ages, but with modern-day technology and lack of ethics, bullying has become even more cruel.
This story is of a traumatized family consisting of parents, an eldest daughter, triplet daughters, and twin sons...Traumatized after a bombing of their school. After counseling, home schooling and other efforts, they move to a new city and admit their daughters to a "pricey" private high school. Little did they realize this school contained a set of ten bullying girls who are just as bad, or worse, than the bullies of other schools. Will they survive these demons, or will they succumb to the power as others in the school have?
The story felt slightly awkward in the beginning, but as the events are added and the suspense increases, the reader is brought into the tale. It feels as if he/she is actually there and that the characters are real people. The mystery was intense until the last pages of the story.
I offer a Four and a Half Stars rating.
*This book was gifted me with no pressure to give a positive review. This is my honest review.
