Next up in Rick Riordan Presents is the hilarious and imaginative story of Sal Vidon and Gabi Real. They meet in the principal’s office over a raw chicken and end up tering holes in the universe! Sal and Gabi Break the Universe is a wild ride by Carlos Hernandez, and we’ve got the first chapter ready to share!
There’s all sorts of bad advice out there about how to deal with bullies. Ignore them. Stand up to them. Tell a teacher, tell a parent, tell your dentist while he’s jamming your teeth back into your face.
The real way to deal with a bully is to stick a raw chicken in their locker.
I had my showdown with Yasmany Robles just three days after I had started my new life at Culeco Academy of the Arts, a magnet school in the middle of Miami. To get in, you had to have good grades, pass an interview, and either submit a portfolio (for painting or writing) or audition (for theater or music). You’d think all the effort someone has to go through to get into Culeco would’ve kept out bullies, but I guess not.
I guess there are just too many of them in the world. If your school only allowed in kids who’d never pick on anyone, you’d have an empty school.
