Sad book is overlong, but beautiful....

Dear Bully, 70 Authors Tell Their Stories, is overlong in places but at the center targets bullies and victims. The story is a collection of 70 stories that talk about being bullied and getting over it, and how to prevent it. The book has a good message. The one problem with the book is that each story was personal, but they all seemed to be the same. One story stood out to be in particular: Slivers of Purple Paper, by Cyn Balog gave me goosebumps. The language is harsh. be warned the C*** word is said. CSM? How did you miss that? Its in the first story, so if your a parent that doesn't like there kid reading bad words, I would skip the first story, but let your child read it, it has a fantastic message. The book also saids, b****, ska**, su**, sh** ect. The violence includes pushing, shoving, hitting, kicking ect. The story tells of some abuse related to sexual things. Otherwise, the book is so-so, but contains a great message repeated one to many times. I recommend it for kids who are being bullied, or who are the bullies, because you need to stop it now. You could save a life.

Gets a bit intense; overall a great insight into schools

I just finished this book and I enjoyed it immensely. I do recommend it; however, it does touch on some sexual and very violent topics. Language is kind of scattered. Some stories have a lot of it, some have none at all. Parents, if you want your child to read this book but are unsure of if they can handle it, I would suggest reading it with them or reading it before them.
