Chrissa by Mary Casanova.

The girls in Chrissa Maxwell´s new fourth grade class are decidedly unfriendly, her valentines mailbox is suspiciously empty -and it´s only her first day at Edgewater Elementary.

On the advice of her grandmother, Chrissa tries first to be nice and then to ignore the mean girls. But they just won´t quit, and they play their mean tricks everywhere -in class, on the bus, and even at swim club. Chrissa dreams of home-schooling or, better yet, of returning to her old school. But when the teasing turns into serious bullying, Chrissa must find the courage to stand strong and speak out.

There is a movie, here the trailer:
