In this latest edition of her classic bestseller, which has over 300,000 copies in print, internationally acclaimed author and activist Jodee Blanco not only tells her moving story of childhood bullying, she also speaks about her continuing struggle to banish peer abuse. This unflinching, unforgettable memoir does more than simply chronicle how one child was shunned - and even physically abused - by her classmates from elementary school through high school. It reveals the devastating effects bullying has not only on its victims, but also on the students, schools, and communities in which it occurs - effects that can last a lifetime. This harrowing tale of survival against insurmountable odds will shock, move, and ultimately inspire you. This vivid story opens your eyes to the harsh realities and long-term consequences of bullying - and shows how all of us can make a difference in the lives of teens today.
