YOU ARE NOT ALONE.

Discover how Lauren Kate transformed the feeling of that one mean girl getting under her skin into her first novel, how Lauren Oliver learned to celebrate ambiguity in her classmates and in herself, and how R.L. Stine turned being the "funny guy" into the best defense against the bullies in his class.

Today's top authors for teens come together to share their stories about bullying—as silent observers on the sidelines of high school, as victims, and as perpetrators—in a collection at turns moving and self-effacing, but always deeply personal.

I am very passionate about teaching the importance of loving to learn! I like to instill in my students that learning never stops, no matter how old you get. And learning doesn't stop just because you are out of school... you keep the hunger for knowledge alive always, and this will help you be your best authentic self and help make the world a better place!

I have close to 45 bright students, all in need of being exposed to rich text and the importance of reading! We are a Title 1 school, and all resources are precious and greatly appreciated. Many of them do not have books or resources in their homes, so it is very important to me to be able to help open those doors for them.
