Ten-year-old Justice feels like the "man of the house" for his twin sister Charity and their mom. But when his classmate Trey bullies him, he doesn't know what to do. A visit to his beloved grandfather helps give Justice some ideas about bullying and how he might deal with it.

When Trey bullies him and also attacks Charity, Justice can't understand why. He's afraid to tell anyone-his mother, his teacher, or the school principal-for fear of making things worse.

Then on a family visit to their home reserve, Justice helps his mushum (grandfather) fix his snowmobile and finds the courage to talk about Trey. Through Mushum's stories and actions, he begins to understand why people bully and some possible ways to deal with them. There's no one simple, sure-fire solution in this honest and compassionate story, but Justice no longer feels quite so alone at school or on the street.

Lori Saigeon is an elementary school teacher, living and working in Regina, Saskatchewan. Fight for Justice is her first work of fiction.
