Everyone’s scared of Susan and Leonie, the school bullies.
They decide who’s ‘in’ or ‘out.’
Debbie is just as scared as everyone else because Debbie’s ‘in’ and Debbie wants to stay ‘in.’
New girl, Shalmalah is definitely ‘out. ’
She doesn’t do her hair right or wear the right clothes.
Shalmalah is different – she doesn’t care what the bullies think but Susan and Leonie want to make her care and they do their best to make her life hell.
Debbie thinks that if Shalmalah tried harder to be the same as everyone else then Susan and Leonie would leave her alone but Shalmalah doesn’t want to be like everybody else – she wants to be herself.
Debbie doesn’t like seeing Shalmalah getting bullied but with Susan and Leonie you’re either with them or against them and Debbie’s going to have to make a very difficult choice.
