While other kids were daydreaming about dances, first kisses, and college, Jodee Blanco was just trying to figure out how to get from homeroom to study hall without being taunted or spit upon as she walked through the halls. This powerful, unforgettable memoir chronicles how one child was shunned-and sometimes physically-abused by her classmates from elementary school through high school. It is an unflinching look at what it means to be the outcast, how even the most loving parents can get it all wrong, why schools are often unable to prevent disaster, and how bullying has been misunderstood and mishandled by the mental health community. You will be shocked, moved, and ultimately inspired by this harrowing tale of survival against insurmountable odds. This vivid story will open your eyes to the harsh realities and long-term consequences of bullying, and how all of us can make a difference in the lives of teens today. AUTHOR: Jodee Blanco is a seasoned publishing executive who has worked with New York Times bestselling authors, Academy Award-winning actors, Emmy Award-winning Producers, and Hall of Fame professional athletes.

A heartbreaking account of bullying in middle and high school, seen through the eyes of one courageous and compassionate woman.

I think this book is a must read for every teenager out there. It should be read in schools, churches, (sans language) and clubs.

What this child put herself through as the result of bullying is heart stopping. This book wasn't made for literary genius, it was made for awareness and if you aren't aware of just how bad it can get for teens suffering bullying or abuse at the hands of their piers and not having anyone they feel like they can talk to so they turn inward, this book will gladly point all that out to you and more!
