Abstract:

"Eleanor Estes's The Hundred Dresses won a Newbery Honor in 1945 and has never been out of print since.

Wanda claims she has one hundred dresses at home, but everyone knows she doesn't and bullies her mercilessly. The class feels terrible when Wanda is pulled out of the school, but by that time it's too late for apologies. Maddie, one of Wandt's classmates, ultimately decides that she is "never going to stand by and say nothing again."--Goodreads.
