Writing a Bully's Wrong (Paperback)
Why do you hate me? That is a fair question. I am a quiet person. At lunch, I eat alone. I mind my own business. I do not interact socially with anyone at recess. I read my books. Last month, you decided to ruin me. For a month, you teased me about not having a cell phone. You were smart. You waited until the teachers had left the playground area to harass me. You said that I was poor, and my clothes were cheap. I don't care about cell phones I like reading. I would have ignored you if you didn't say anything about my parents. I want to tell them what you did to me, but I can't hurt their feelings. I cannot let them know that I think we are poor. It would crush them. I can't inform the principal because I don't want him to look at me differently. My only solution is to suffer in silence. I probably won't give you this letter. I will pretend to be sick. That way, I don't have to be bullied by you.
An Avid Reader
Have you ever been bullied? Have you wondered, "Why did this person pick me?" In your mind, it didn't make any sense. Students experience bullying in schools, on social media, and in public areas all over the world. In my fictional book, "Writing a Bully's Wrong," there are 25 letters written by bully survivors. In each letter, those students give an insight into how bullying affected them emotionally and physically. Also, there is a response from their bully. The bully provides their side of the story. Lastly, there is a bonus letter. My goal is to help students stand up against bullying worldwide. If I help one student, it is a step in the right direction.
