Over 300,000 copies in print!

In this timely update of the seminal classic, author and activist Jodee Blanco reveals how she simply set out to share her own heartbreaking story -- and ended up igniting a grassroots movement in the nation's schools. Along with an all-new Letter to My Readers, Reader's Guide, and Resources Section, she also offers the latest information on cyberbullying; the Adult Survivor of Peer Abuse; her in-school anti-bullying program, INJJA (It's NOT Just Joking Around!™); and where to go for help.

"This book could save your child's life. It's a must-read for parents, educators, and everyone concerned with the health and well-being of our children."
--John Bradshaw, author of the New York Times bestseller Homecoming

While other children were daydreaming about dances, first kisses, and college, Jodee Blanco was trying to figure out how to go from homeroom to study hall without being taunted or spit upon as she walked through the halls.

This powerful, unforgettable memoir chronicles how one child was shunned -- and even physically abused -- by her classmates from elementary school through high school. 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. This vivid story will open your eyes to the harsh realities and long-term consequences of bullying -- and how all of us can make a difference in the lives of teens today.
