The Outcasts of 19 Schuyler Place by E.L. Konigsburg is a story about a 12 year old girl named Margaret Rose. When we first meet Margaret she is at summer camp. Margaret is bullied and picked on at camp until her Uncles come to her rescue. What Margaret does not know is her Uncles have been dealing with some bullies of their own, and they're going to need Margaret's help just as much as she needed their help. I really liked this book. Margaret is such a gutsy strong character I could not help cheering her on. I could tell you more about this book, but in Margaret's own words, "I prefer not to." ; ) I guess you'll have to read it for yourself!
