Buddha Boy by Kathe Koja

Buddha Boy by Kathe Koja

Buddha Boy is a remarkable story of unlikely friendship, art, bullying, and a very real portrayal of anger- the slow anger that boils and churns. Justin didn’t mean to befriend the new kid, Jinsen, a bald “freak” with amazing artistic gifts. But he does, and realizes he doesn’t regret it, even though the friendship carries a price. Justin must choose whether to be silent about what he knows, or to take a stand. Buddha Boy is a beautifully written story, with a voice no one will forget. A must-read for anyone who has been a part of the system – the bully, the bullied, or even, like Justin, the bystander.
