Sticks and Stones

(B) 2013, Grades 8 -Adult, 386 pages, Random House Publishing This book defines what bullying is and, just as important, what it is not. Readers explore when intervention is essential and when kids should be given the freedom to fend for themselves. Persistent myths are dispelled such as girls bully more than boys, that online and in-person bullying are not entirely distinct, that bullying is a common cause of suicide, and that harsh criminal penalties are an effective deterrent.
