This is a profound testament to compassion of the two teenage sisters who started the letter-writing campaign, the kindness of strangers, and a substantive expose of how hurtful bullying can be. Most striking are the letters from older people who clearly still feel the sting of of schoolyard harassment decades later. A foreword clearly and succinctly explains the different types of bullying, the psychological motivation behind the cruel behavior, and the roles of each person in the bullying dynamic: the target, the bully, and the bystander.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
