Sand-filled suburban schoolyards are seemingly one of the safest places for kids growing up. Indeed, that is what the community thought about the playground at Wales Middle School. However, the guidance department, schoolteachers, and administration couldn’t have been more wrong this particular year, as there was a war between two rival factions, the stingies and antistingies—and, to make matters worse, the stingies had taken over the playground.
The stingies controlled the slides, monkey bars, and every inch of the yard. The school needed a leader, and someone willing to take a stand.
One such preteen is a young J. Peters. He will fight against the bullies and want-to-be tough kids on the playground. He organizes the antistingies and starts down a path that would not just retake the playground, but would lead to student council president.
In Wales Middle School: The Rise of J. Peters, school bullies, and teachers without respect for their students get a first-hand taste of their own medicine. J. Peters will stop at nothing to ensure his fellow students are happy, content, and able to play on the swings without fear of harm from others.
