When Jake was three years old at Miss Lulu’s Dainty Diaper Day Care Center, what did he know about bullies? Nothing. But he learned fast--too fast! Why? Because Jake is kind of smart, and he’s not a tattletale, and he doesn’t have a big brother to protect him. He’s a perfect bully-magnet. But now that Jake is in fourth grade, he can look back and see that the year that made the difference was second grade. That’s when Link Baxter moved to town. Link was a SuperBully, and Jake had his hands full just trying to survive. Then it was class project time, and who did the teacher assign to be Link’s partner? You guessed it. Jake has to use all his smarts--and his heart as well--to turn himself into Jake Drake, Bully Buster.
