MJ | 1325 comments I'm looking for books that a young teen can read that might give perspective or ideas on dealing with bullying and not being what everyone else considers normal.

Thank you

Rachel | 1532 comments Maybe the Geek Girl series by Holly Smale. First in the series is Geek Girl

Also Beautiful Broken Things

Are you looking for books with a male or female protagonist? Or does it not matter?

Gillian | 240 comments Are you looking for non-fiction or fiction?

MJ | 1325 comments Geek Girl looks good, thanks

MJ | 1325 comments Anything that a 13yo can read really. Fic/non-fic doesn't particularly matter. They don't have to end in rainbows and lollipops, but hopefully they'll be focused on positive outcomes and actions... even if that is realising that those people just aren't for you and being ok with continuing to look for people who are.

Pamela Love | 1057 comments It's a fantasy, but it touches on these themes (besides being an excellent book) Castle Hangnail by Ursula Vernon Castle Hangnail

SamSpayedPI | 1600 comments Blubber, perhaps. It's written for younger children (5th grade) and the narrator does participate in the bullying for most of the book.

Keyera Haskins | 20 comments I don't remember much about it, but perhaps Speak.

It does not give details on how to deal with bullying, so much as show a girl who is dealing with those problems herself. Also, I would say that the only social issues stem from the reason she is being bullied in the first place, which may also be a warning on weather or not to let someone read it.
