Just End It

Would you be brave enough to stand up to a bully if they were once your best friend?

When Jessie Brown returns to school after the summer holidays, everything’s different. She’s been dumped by her best friend, and bullied by the new girl. Life never used to be this complicated. She wishes everything would go back to normal.

After discovering that a stone she found brings bad luck if taken without permission, everything starts to make sense. It might even explain the vivid dreams she’s been having about a girl from long ago.

As Jessie cements new friendships, life improves, until a secret threatens everything and the bullying moves online. Jessie must find a way to make it all stop and fix everything.

Just End It is the first book in the Just series for readers aged 9-12 years. If you like fast-paced adventure, plucky heroines, lucky stones and magical vibes, then you’ll love this latest instalment in Donna Blaber’s page-turning series.

“I can highly recommend this book! Our tween has just finished reading it, and absolutely loved it. In fact she enjoyed it so much, she was quite sad that she’d finished it!” Glenys, Auckland

“I don’t usually read ‘tween’ novels but thoroughly enjoyed Just End It – what a wonderful story for all ages. I can’t wait for my 12 year old granddaughter to read it as well and I can see a visit to Whale Bay in my future. It deserves to be a bit hit.” Helen, Pukekohe

“…..The best but perhaps slightly understated message of this story is that young people change, and it is not necessary to stay friends with those you were besties with when younger. Personalities and interests change as we mature. While the book is pitched at and suitable for 9 to 12-year olds, it would also appeal to year 9 and 10 students. It is the perfect length for the reluctant reader that wants something that “is like real life but not a love story.” Colleen, Librarian, Marlborough Girls’ College
