First, I'll say thank you to Sherry.
I absolutely love this book! The perspectives are well thought out, believable, endearing and emotionally developed. Being able to see from all sides provides the reader to get inside the character's minds and the interwoven relationships. This book would be an excellent and valuable teaching tool for English Classes in schools because of way the characters are represented. You read what it's like for each of them, giving a well rounded view to the reader. Again, I loved this book. The bold frankness of the story, the reality of what bullies do to there victims, the angst victims feel, the crushing and debilitating results of their suffering, as well as the truth in hope and help that many don't realize is there because they feel alone, and the awareness that happens when people realize what they thought was 'just a joke' really isn't and is harmful to another, carries well and the message is clear. Excellent read!
