Slice of Life #20

Our Scholastic Book Fair is this week and one of the books on the "adult" table is Save Me by Lisa Scottoline.  I can't remember when I read this book, but it has stuck with me.  
The book is about a mom who is volunteering in the cafeteria to keep an eye on her daughter who is being bullied.  After an explosion, the mom is faced with a choice, either save her own daughter or other children.   She is also faced with the consequences of her decision.  Every once in awhile, during cafeteria duty, my mind will wander back to this book.  I vision the cafeteria in the book being much like the one at my school.
This would be a great spring break or summer read!
