Reviews

"This book was really important and vital to me. I was extremely grateful for it, and I hope that many others read this and recognize the importance of stopping bullying, if they haven't yet. Even if you do realize it, you--like me--may want more information, the human quality in the world of bullying."
--Eli Madison, Blogger
"This is a book that I would recommend to parents, tweens, teens, and educators. I will be purchasing this book for my own collection. And recommending to my students and peers."
--Tanya Kaanta, Parent and Educator
"This book is well put together and is a powerful look into the world of bullying and bullied and the cost of allowing bullying to continue in our communities."
--Alex McGilvery, Blogger, CelticFrogReviews.com
"It'll be a great resource on bullying & will be going on a brochure I'm passing out to schools about our bullying resources."
--Kathy Jalowiec, Librarian
"Bullying Under Attack is beyond eye-opening, beyond painful to read. That said, this book should become part of the school required reading."
--Dianne Bylo
"This book is good for children and adults that have been bullied just to let them know that they are not on their own."
--Julie Banton

"I think all teenagers, adults and teachers must read this book. This book should be part of the required reading material. I recommend this book to everyone, young and old."
--Sandra Beekhuis
"What an incredibly heart-wrenching book."
--Jenny Trimble
"A useful and insightful text for victims and carers alike, to deal with a long underestimated problem. Should be stocked in all school libraries."

--Patty Dohle
"Bullying Under Attack should be required reading in schools everywhere. This should be the book discussed in English class, read during assemblies, carried in every backpack, and available on library shelves. This is an excellent book with the power to influence its readers and maybe, just maybe erase some of the hatred from this world."

--Nicole Mooney


"Certainly, this is the most important young adult and children's book I've read in my entire life."

--Devorah Bennu, Blogger for the Guardian


"This book is a much-needed anthology. There are not a lot of books out there written by teens, for teens, about bullying--especially including the perspective of the bully and the bystander. I would recommend this book to really any teen that I know, whether they suffer from bullying or not. I would also recommend this book to anyone who works with teens for a living, such as youth pastors, high school teachers, therapists, etc. Overall, I am glad that I read it."

--April Thorwardson, Social Worker


"I really wish a book like this had have been available when I was going through my years of torment. But I am happy that it is available now...I would highly recommend this book to everyone."

--Sarah Quick, Stay-at-home Mom


"A timely and powerful book. I ordered copies for the library and hope that they will reach readers that can benefit from its message."

--Laura Rancani, Librarian


"This book is a must read for everyone, and is one that is currently being added to the library collection."

--Sara Thompson, Librarian


"Heart-felt and heart-wrenching stories, straight from the experiences of the bullied, the bystanders, and those who have bullied. Exceptional writing from all, and so worth the read."
--Ellen Hopkins, The New York Times bestselling young adult author--Endorsement
"I was never a victim . . . never a bully . . . but bystander? Oh, yes. I was too often a bystander. Maybe I am, sometimes still. This meaningful book will kindle sparks of recognition in many of us, along with a reminder that we can change."
--Lois Lowry, author of The Giver--Endorsement
"Without detracting from what experts understand about bullying, there is no substitute for direct testimony by victims, victimizers, and bystanders. In this unique collection, young people describe their own experiences vividly and, in the process, reveal what they have learned about others and about themselves."
--Howard Gardner, professor of education at Harvard University, author of Frames of Mind: The Theory of Multiple Intelligences--Endorsement
"For almost a quarter of a century, Teen Ink has been encouraging young people to write and then has published those pieces. These heartfelt essays and poems explore the issues faced by teenagers today. I applaud their efforts because they not only help young people deal with their own lives but also encourage the budding authors of the next generation."
--Anita Silvey, creator of Children's Book-a-Day Almanac--Endorsement
"Wow. What a timely achievement--the only book about the problem of bullying entirely written by teenagers. I know their personal stories will move you, anger you, inspire you--even scare you. A great read for a great cause."
--R. L. Stine, author of the Goosebumps series--Endorsement
"Bullying comes in many forms: name calling, shutting out, character assassination, humiliation . . . even getting spit at. All of which happened to me. This important book takes on an issue all of us can relate to because it happened to so many of us. It's refreshing and at times heartbreaking to hear the experiences of these young people. Their voices remind us that bullying is still an issue for children of all ages, and their stories bring a fresh perspective to an old story. Bullying Under Attack is a unique wakeup call for parents, teachers, and bullies, victims, and bystanders to stop, listen, and think about the power of their words and actions."
--Vanessa Williams--Endorsement
"It's great that Teen Ink has given a wide array of teenagers a chance to speak out on bullying!"
--Emily Bazelon, author of Sticks and Stones--Endorsement
"Can there be any truer YA literature than that created by young adults themselves? These stories and poems about bullying are wrenchingly beautiful in their honesty and sometimes remarkable in their insight. I have to believe that they will serve as a welcome salve for the wounds and loneliness of those who are bullied as well as wake-up call for the bullies who so often cannot comprehend the pain they inflict."
--Todd Strasser, author of The Wave--Endorsement
"People say that some books are mirrors and some are windows. That is to say, readers can find themselves reflected in the stories, or see out of their own narrow lives into a broader view. The stories in this collection will do this for you."
--Gregory Maguire, Author of Out of Oz, the Final Volume of the Wicked Years--Endorsement
"Bullying Under Attack's gripping firsthand accounts take you inside bullying from every vantage point. Writing with honesty, clarity, and heart, these brave young people illuminate a topic society prefers to squint at. Inspiring."
--Emma McLaughlin and Nicola Kraus, authors of The Nanny Diaries--Endorsement
"With bullying on everyone's mind, this book offers great insight into the real-life stories of those most affected: the victim, the bystander, and the bully. A must-read for parents, educators, and teens who want to understand the severity of the bully crisis."
--Peter Buffett, environmentalist and philanthropist--Endorsement
