"In this intricate YA tale, a group of teenagers with special skills unite to confront bullying, though they end up fighting crime, murder, and terrorism. Eventually, MOB evolves into a true crime-fighting band of superheroes. Reminiscent of the Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew, the teens outshine adults. They operate in their own world more or less autonomously, sometimes cooperating with grownups, other times circumventing them. Filled with numerous side plots involving family history, a mysterious corporation, a rare disease, terrorist plots, and more, Smith's tale ties it all together seamlessly while continually sounding the bullying theme, which intensifies from everyday school harrying to a device for recruiting criminals. The conclusion sets up the next MOB exploit." - Kirkus Reviews

Mind Over Bullies-A MOB Forms, written by D.K. Smith, is a fast paced, action packed, modern day thriller. Margo thinks people who are bullied are "weak." They let words get to them, never defending themselves, a constant cycle of mean words streaming from the mouth of the attacker. Margo has never had to deal with bullies; she is smart, popular, and pretty. When a close friend betrays Margo, shattering her reputation, she realizes how the "weak" feel, and she wants to stop it.

Mind Over Bullies has two themes running through the book: One is a counterfeiting scheme and the other is bullying. It is a book about teenager Margo Rios and how she handles both problems.
 
Margo has two friends, one of whom tells her a secret. When the secret is suddenly made public, Margo gets blamed, and starts being bullied as a result. At the same time, Margo and her newfound friends, the MOB, start investigating the counterfeiting operation in their city. This story is about more than Margo, though. It's about other teens, as well.
