Lisa Scottoline “Save Me”
April 29th, 2011
For some people, being bullied doesn’t end when they grow up and leave school. Litigator-turned-bestselling author Lisa Scottoline builds her new novel “Save Me” around a third-grade girl, who is being bullied at school, and her parents, who become victims of what Scottoline says is a different kind of bullying.
The story begins with Rose, a mother who volunteers to be a “lunch mom” at her daughter’s school, to see firsthand the bullying that eight-year-old Melly has to put up with. She gets that, but much more: an explosion and fire at the school that forcez Rose to choose between saving her daughter, or the “mean girl” who’s been bullying her.Rose’s decision has consequences that leave her and her family — and the reader — doubting the sanity of the legal system.
