Please Stop Laughing at Me: written by Jodee Blanco
This book was one of the best books I have read because I am now aware of what goes on at school to others and what some have to face daily. I can’t relate to having an experience like this but know others who feel the way Jodee does and has gone through what she has. This book is about a girl named Jodee who just wants to be a part of the popular group by who she is and by being herself. She wants to be accepted but is trying too hard and not being herself. Being abused and made fun of by students straight to her face isn’t something that’s going to help. “Jodee, Dr. Graff wants to help you, but you’ve got to be willing to help yourself,” Mom stated firmly. This quote explains the theme because in this book to change or get help you have to be willing to help yourself as others are willing to help you. I believe this quote is true in this book as well as in life; it takes two willing people to help each other. She’s trying to stay strong during hard times and on top of things, convince her parents she doesn’t need help from psychiatrics. This book will really open up your heart to those who are just trying to be accepted and treated decent by other students. Will she get through this and stay strong through everything? Go ahead and take a peek through the book, you won’t regret reading this novel!
