I have had this book on my TBR list for a long time... I decided to use it for SuBC as my "Read a book that intimidates you for whatever reason." I've been putting off this book for a long time because even though I was only slightly bullied in 6th grade, it hasn't been a book that I was anxious to read. I guess I was scared of reading this book and being reminded of what kids used to say to me. I was worried that this book would leave me feeling depressed. Sure enough I was in tears though most of this book, but I feel relieved after finishing it (BTW: this is a really quick read... I started and finished in one sitting without getting out of my chair). The author tells her story of being bullied, which is much worse than anyone I know. Somehow her story was still inspiring, and it makes me want to do more about what I witness as a high school teacher. I see kids being bullied on occassion, but I know it happens outside the classroom even more often. Our school hasn't done a whole lot to bring awareness to bullying, but I really wish they would. If anything this book has taught me to be more involved when I notice bullying in my classroom or in the hallways.
