Jack Sullivan is a force to be reckoned with. Just the thought of his brings fear into the hearts of students and teachers alike.

Until an accident changes Jack’s life… or maybe just his perception.

When Jack finally realizes how his victims have felt he knows it’s time for a renovation. His own, but will Jack be able to right his wrongs or will old habits die hard?

Hott Review:

What a book!

As I read the blub about Operation: Bully Renovation, I thought I’d love to share it with my children when I finished, but instead I’m sharing it with you!

Operation: Bully Renovation is a very true-to-life depiction of middle school​ and bullies. I’ve never experienced what I read in this book, but am shocked to admit I’ve seen both sides. I think, for me, Ms. Naas really brought to life things I’d seen but hadn’t necessarily realized were bullying cases.

​How sad!! While I know Jack’s life isn’t so different than many it was still tremendously sad. I think that this will give many a real feel for the “other side” – no matter who they are.

Author Bio:

From the time she was old enough to talk, Katy Newton Naas has been creating characters and telling stories. As a child, they sometimes got her into trouble. She knew she wanted to write books when she won a Young Author’s competition as a second-grader for her short story titled, “The Grape Pie.” (Don’t let its tasty title fool you – it was actually a sad little tale!)

Katy devoured books as a child and young adult, always doing chores and odd jobs in order to make enough money to buy more of them. Though she continues to age, her true literature love is and has always been children’s and young adult fiction.

Katy currently teaches middle school reading and high school English in southern Illinois, as well as children’s church. She graduated from Southern Illinois University-Carbondale with a bachelor’s degree in English Education and a master’s degree in Reading and Language Studies. She enjoys her life out in the country with her husband, her sweet and rowdy young son (soon to be SONS – her second little boy is due any day!), and all her four-legged kids: Shakespeare, Poe, Morgi, Cappy, Ana, and Gray.

She loves creating both realistic and futuristic stories about kids, tweens, and teens, and feels so fortunate to get to work with them every day as a teacher.
