Publisher Comments:

Maybe you're a kid struggling to fit in and you feel like nobody understands what you're going through. (Or maybe you're the parent of a lonely, bullied child who's tried everything to get your son or daughter to open up, with disappointing results. Or an educator concerned about a friendless student.)

This is your first step toward finding your way back to yourself. Jodee Blanco, author of the New York Times bestselling memoir Please Stop Laughing at Me . . ., designed this fresh and innovative journal to help you draw out of silence to a place of renewed self-understanding and acceptance. Chock-full of insightful quotes, practical activities, and meaningful questions, Jodee gives you a safe place to vent, accompanying you on a guided tour of your deepest thoughts and emotions. Sharing memories from her own painful adolescence, the author speaks as a kindred spirit, holding your hand as you begin to reclaim your hope for the future, one diary entry at a time.

Synopsis:

While other children were daydreaming about dances, first kisses, and college, Jodee Blanco was trying to figure out how to go 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 even 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.
