True Stories by Teens About Bullying
Edited by Youth Communication 

The essays on teenage bullying in Vicious address every form of bullying: physical, verbal, relational, and cyber. These stories will appeal to readers because the writers’ cruelty and hurt are unmistakably real—and the writers’ stories are at times painful, often admirable, and always compelling for the resilience they reveal.

In the Real Teen Voices series, teens open up to tell personal stories that tackle difficult, real-life issues. Direct, revealing, and often raw, these voices will ring true for any teen reader who has faced bullying, anger, or stress. Each piece has been selected and edited to appeal to reluctant and emerging readers as young as seventh grade. Readers will be inspired by the writers’ courage and strength in working hard to overcome problems both large and small. Order all 3 books in the Real Teen Voices series and save 20%!

2013 VOYA Nonfiction Honor List Selection

“[The] emotions felt honest . . . worth having.”—Washington State Young Adult Review Group

“This would be excellent for younger teens, as it presents the messages of be true to yourself, stand up for yourself, be yourself, and be kind . . . these are messages that need to be heard as early as possible.”—VOYA

“Teens will identify with the writers, discover that their own problems are not unique, and be encouraged to find help, making these titles solid choices.”—School Library Journal

“Filled with interactive personal scenarios that will make for great group discussions about the isolation of the victim, the cruelty of the perpetrator, the shame of both, and of the bystander, at school, on the street, and online.”—Booklist
