Blurb: Vinny is a kid just like you, or is he? Vinny is from a family of metalheads and like his parents, he’s one too. As a child Vinny was unaware of his family’s differences, but as he got older, Vinny noticed that he was, in fact, not like other children. As the years passed, the more Vinny realized that being different is not easy. He noticed people staring, whispering to themselves as he passed, and sometimes shouting insults. Because of the differences, Vinny had a hard time making friends in elementary school. However, the lack of friends did not get him down, and as he entered middle school, Vinny was determined to find friends who were metal like him. Join Vinny as he shares his story of bullying, difference, coping, and perseverance.
My Review: What a great story for elementary school children to read. This story teaches children to be who they truly want to be despite the bullying and dislike towards them. It teaches kids to look beyond the social stigmas and find the real person within!
Loved it and loved the illustrations also!
