  • DOGO Books megank - We Want You to Know: Kids Talk About Bullying by Deborah Ellis is a collection of kids talking about their experiences with bullying. The author interviews more than 40 kids about their own bullying story; every story is real and describes their story of how they were before the bullying started, what happened, and how they picked up the pieces to be happy again. I really like how the author orgnaizes the book into 5 parts based on why each kid is bullied because it fully answers a question every victim wonders: Why are they chosen by the bullies to be teased and threatened? I would definitly recommend this book to teens because everyone should know that teasing and bullying others is unacceptable. Also, I love this book because I've been bullied before and this book really delivers the message that we are not alone. There are other people out there that are suffering the same thing at school; therefore, don't feel alone or be afraid to stand up for yourself or your peers. Always remember to be unique and most importantly, be happy.

    Starred review from September 1, 2010

    Gr 4-9-As part of her work with an anti-bullying campaign in her local Canadian community, Ellis interviewed young people between the ages of 9 and 19 about their experiences. In honest, straightforward prose, she shares their stories, many as targets and some as perpetrators or bystanders. The essays are loosely organized around a few themes, such as bullying based on some form of difference, whether real or perceived, and being targeted "just because." The final chapter, "Redemption," highlights those kids who have managed to rise above bullying and find strength. The selections in which students talk about experiencing repeated psychological and/or physical abuse and educators who turn a blind eye to the problems or subversively encourage or participate in the behavior are particularly distressing. Each story is written from the first-person point of view, some with real names and photos, providing an intimacy and immediacy that are critical with these kinds of issues. Readers will find at least one or two stories they can relate to, and educators should be able to use many of the narratives to jumpstart conversation. A good choice for schools stepping up their efforts to address bullying.-Jody Kopple, Shady Hill School, Cambridge, MA
