Reading all of these authors' stories has really opened my eyes. Growing up, I don't really remember ever getting made fun of or getting called bad names. I am sure that there are times that it happened, but it obliviously never really affected me like it would others. As a kid, I was a little on the shy side so I stuck to my little group of friends, but I was taught to respect others even if they were different than me.

I realize that bullying is a part of our society and that it will never fully go away, but it can be greatly improved if people would just pay attention. If you are a parent make sure your children feel comfortable enough to come to you if they have a problem.

Also, be open minded enough that if someone else comes to you about a problem with your child you will listen and try to understand. If you are a teacher or a school administrator take notice of your surroundings and pay attention to what is going on. Don't let your students be the victims of bullies. Last but not least, if you are just a normal person and you see someone being bullied, don't be afraid to stand up and say something. This was a very educational read for me that was both sad and inspirational.

I wish that we didn't have this problem in the world today and that everyone could be accepting, but that's not reality.

It is sometimes difficult to see the line between playful banter among friends and hurtful remarks that really sting. And, sadly, many students will not say anything to anyone about these remarks and will instead hold their hurt inside. This book helps us see some of those blurred lines more clearly.

This book shows bullying in its various stages and in its various disguises. I have shared many of the stories in this book with my students as a read aloud, and it has sparked some good conversation. I think it has been helpful for them to see themselves in these stories, because sometimes they're the victim, sometimes they're the bystander, and sometimes they're the perpetrator.
