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.

    " Everyone should read this book! It really shows the insight of how does it feel when bullied and where bullying might lead to. "

    " Wow, what a story! She hit home about how cruel people can be. Bullying is no joke, and she was so right, the people being abused usually go to a shrink, when the people being cruel really should. I don't know why our society allows such cruelty. Picking out bullies as a teacher is easy, what's hard is dealing with them. I am appalled at how most of her teachers brushed her off when she was seeking shelter. I think our schools are finally coming around to addressing the issue, but the society needs to change as well. How does one discipline a bully? This should be a major topic for society to look into.

    " FANTASTIC!! It was a hard read for me, because of what I went through in school, but I loved it. This book should be required reading in schools. It would give those kids that bully the others an idea of what it's like to live through the taunting and teasing. Reading this book made me thankful for what I went through in school. It made me realize how much being an outsider helped me in the end. "

    " I just finished this book. To me it was about a whiny child that continued to be rescued out of every hard situation. It's hard for me to believe that at 4 !!! schools you were physically abused because you stood up for the underdog. Maybe I am too far removed from high school but I remember bullying but I certaintly don't remember people standing by while students were being abused. I know bullying is still part of the school system but I want to hope that it is NO where near the extent of abuse that is told in this book. I didnt think this book was inspirational at all I though it was UNBELIEVEABLE. "

    " This book was fantastic. It was very sad, but a great read. "

    " A must read for anyone who works with children or teens or anyone who is a parent. Jodee Blanco reveals very personal experiences that made her younger years a living hell and how they helped to make her a strong woman and advocate. A relatively quick and easy read, the message is laid out clearly: kids being teased need help NOW. However, the dialog was obviously "reconstructed" from history or was taken from the diaries of her youth. If you ever have the opportunity to see Blanco live, it will be well worth your while. Her passionate and honest candor will enthrall you and make your heart break for her and the other outcasts of the world. I could relate personal experience as well as those moments in my life where I know I never step forward to help someone because I was glad that the hostility was not directed towards me. Again, an easy but important read for just about anyone. "
