Read full description of the books:
When luck gives a new kid a false reputation as a tough guy, can he find the strength to live up to his image?
Rodney Rathbone is a self-admitted coward. Things scare him, and he can’t help it. So naturally he’s terrified when he moves to a new town and the bully is ready to pounce. But just as Rodney is about to flee, a baseball flies in from out of nowhere and knocks out the bully. Now everyone thinks Rodney’s invincible—when really he feels just the opposite. Can he figure out how to live up to his new reputation and make friends along the way?
Told with warmth and heart, this debut novel from a middle-school teacher will speak to the hidden insecurities—and strengths—of every middle-grade reader.

Read information about the authorA fifth grade teacher for over 17 years in Hicksville, New York, Scott Starkey's had plenty of firsthand experience exploring the reading habits of students. The elements they enjoy best in a book — humor, suspense, and a dash of irreverence — are woven into his Rodney Rathbone novels, How to Beat the Bully Without Really Trying and its sequel, The Call of the Bully.
Best-selling author Jim Trelease notes, “Scott Starkey really understands kids, school, and the language of both,” and calls How to Beat the Bully, “terrific, very well written, and right on target.”
A graduate of Hiram College in Ohio, Scott was raised around writing. His father has authored several scholarly works and his mother, Joanne Starkey, is a longtime food critic for The New York Times. Scott’s experiences accompanying her on restaurant reviews plays a surprise role in his third Rodney Rathbone novel, due out in January 2014.
Scott received an M.A. in Elementary Education from Adelphi University and a Professional Diploma from C.W. Post University at Old Westbury, New York. In addition to his writing career, he participates in anti-bullying events and continues to lecture on the subject. His other passion is encouraging young people to read. Knowing that half the battle for parents and teachers is finding books that can hook a kid’s interest, Scott makes sure that humor and adventure are never far from the action in his middle grade novels.
Scott Starkey resides in Long Island, New York, with his wife, Judy, and their three children.
