I think it was a really good movie. It gave off great examples of cyber-bulling and what was done after words of it. From the beginning to the very end. I've been bullied from elementary to sophomore year of high school before i said something about it and took up for myself. I waited way too long , DO NOT WAIT speak up and get the help you deserve before it gets really really bad like mine did. It's never too late. Don't let them get you down and depressed and make you want to do something bad. (self harm) (suicide) it's not worth it. You are too good for that. So, please please get the help you need and don't wait.
