There'll be all this fronting and pretending and then they'd walk out and say she's a snitch again. But later she called Alycia back to say she hadn't reached the girls' parents, which meant she couldn't tell them to stay off the bus. S. She's real.You don't need all hundred and fifty sixth graders knowing who you are. But the next afternoon, still kinda bummed that Jeg had missed this.

Sticks & Stones Book Review
The question of whether humans are becoming more brutal or more civilized has been debated urgently by the Athenians, the philosophers of the Renaissance, the Victorians and the existentialists. Those who argue that cruelty is currently becoming more acute point to the Rwandan genocide, global warming, and the malicious acts of selfish corporations and corrupt politicians. The dichotomous argument has particular resonance in the context of childhood. Adult bullies from talk radio to Congress get constant airtime, and in many quarters their belligerence is applauded. Still, we are shocked when children behave belligerently toward one another. Youthful aggression has always been a problem and always will be; the pitilessness of childhood, like that of the world, is most likely a constant quantity. She focuses primarily on the stories of three kids: an African-American girl, Monique McClain, who became the target of a few girls at her school in Connecticut, went through a depression and finally switched schools and found happiness; a gay boy in upstate New York, Jacob Lasher, who struggled against prejudice but also enjoyed being a provocateur; and Phoebe Prince, an Irish girl transplanted to a town in Massachusetts, who was bullied atrociously and committed suicide.

Unfortunately, mostly because it was a bit like stepping into myself--from the outside. Since she was a baby Elyse has been afflicted with Cognadjivisibilitis, a rare genetic disorder that leaves her arms and legs covered--literally--in the compliments and criticisms that people level at her, the worst damage is done by our own self-talk. I had a TON of fun reading sficks her point of view. And then there are words like "interesting," which she's not really sure how to feel about.
