More About This Title Diesel the Body Guard
Delilah Dillard is a young girl with red hair who is being bullied at school by two brothers, Richard and Jimmy. She has tried everything possible to avoid the boys which includes walking to school each day instead of riding the bus. One day, a new student named Lilly Ann is introduced to the class. She has red hair, braces, and wears glasses. Delilah happily agrees to befriend the new student and offers to take her under her wing for the day. It is during lunch time when Richard and Jimmy made their move, and began to bully both girls. Delilah had grown used to being called names but when Lilly began to cry, Delilah decided it was time to get even with the bullies. "Lilly, don't you worry about those boys. Just wait until you meet Diesel, my best friend and Body Guard," said Delilah. Knowing how protective her pet rooster, Diesel was, she set out to give the boys a taste of their own medicine. This would be the only way to end the bullying, and teach the brothers a lesson.
