Sad and inspirational like all good teenage bullying memoirs should be. This was at times very painful to read because a lot of her stories were very close to home. At the same time it was comforting to know that there are others who were as miserable at I was since misery loves company. The author was more forgiving to here tormentors than I have been. I'm glad she's found a way past. It's a tale of hope as well as despair.
