Dear Bully contains 70 stories about bullying, edited by Megan Kelley Hall and Carrie Jones. I'd say 96 percent of the stories are very, very good. If you were bullied like I was in school, I'm sure you will identify with many of them. This book is heartbreaking because these people were bullied for no good reason. Having been bullied, especially for long stretches, is something you never forget. Dear Bully also tells of people who did nothing to stop it and now regret their decision. This should be a must read for teens and adults too--bullying goes on in he work place as well.
