A little bit about myself – I work as a Data Librarian and Stats Consultant by day and read, read, read YA material by night I have 2 teenaged girls with whom I’ve competed for books in the past. Today I still compete with my youngest – although I tend to lose – which means I need to sneak into her room at night to grab the book I want to read… I’ve been accused by family members that I read too many books – and with that comment they bought me an eReader in hopes that I would reduce the number of books I buy. Well… that’s helped to a very small extent! I still buy books and now I also purchase ebooks.

I usually don’t read short stories – heck I didn’t realize this was a short story But it was a great one! The saying that comes to mind is: “Short, sweet and to the point!” OK this story is far from sweet – but it was short and very much to the point.
I want to say that this is a poignant story and short enough to encourage teens to read it. Will it affect them – I really don’t know – but on the chance that it will affect 1 or 2 in a class of 30 – it’s worth it. It’s harsh in spots but it needs to be.
I definitely recommend this short story – but only to the older readers. But then again… when we’re dealing with the topic of bullying – what is old and young?
