This book was incredibly moving. It delves deep into several stories of being bullied and how hard it is on the younger generation today. The stories all relate to kids that are homosexual and how they are treated in school by their peers. It also shows how kids are viewed differently depending on their personalities. What I found most interesting is it doesn't matter if a person is homosexual, sometimes they are treated differently depending on how they present themselves rather than their sexual preference. You could have two kids in the same school both with homosexual tendencies and one could be treated fine while the other is treated as an outcast.

This book is definitely one I would recommend, not just to the younger generation that are homosexual but to any of the younger generation that have bullied or have been bullied. It really does hit home and teaches some profound lessons on what it's like to be in both positions, as well as going in depth into the mind of both the bully and the victim.

This is one of the issues today that has become more prominent and I very much feel this book gives great insight into the ongoing problem of bullying with our youth.
