Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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 diasaster 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.
