"It was eighther shun or be shunned. The meaner you were to the "rejects" the more popular you became with members of your clique."
I think this quote means that to become more popular you have to be a bully and hurt others.
I think this happens a lot in life because people hurt others to make themselves feel bigger.
I do not agree with this quote because you shouldn't make others feel pain for no reason. To make others like you you dont have to bully people. Practical jokes are funny and others feelings aren't hurt. You should stand up for people who are being made fun of and lots of times if you just take the joke and dont react or just laugh it off people will stop making fun of you.
One time in fith grade we had a new kid named Kevin. He thought he was the best at everything, self centered, annoying, and braged a lot. Everyone in the class got very tired of hearing him talk on and on about himself and was very quickly ruled a reject. At recess he was beat up and called names and it almost became a game to see who could be the meanest to him. He was almost brought to tears everyday by nearly the whole class. After sixth grade he moved to a new school.

Hey what’s up, you’re probably wondering why I said hi, well because I didn’t know how else to start this so her it goes. Let me tell you a little something about me, like I said before I’m a little crazy. I have one brother but, I will have another one pretty soon. I also have two twin baby cousins I love them so much, we call them sumo wrestlers because there so chunky. I love animals I have three dogs and one snake, yes a snake. I am 14 as of now but, on December 12th I will be 15, I’m so excited. And I love to dance, if you see me dance I would stand back always because I might accidentally hit you in the face. Well I got to go because class is almost over, bye!:)
