Are you the victim of a bully? As Aija Mayrock, the teen who wrote this book, will tell you growing up is hard enough. Toss a bully or two into the mix and your self-esteem can take a real beating. Mayrock, herself a victim of bullying, offers young people of all ages, especially teens, practical suggestions for navigating the gauntlet of bullies in school and online. Mayrock incorporates survival tips and conversations with your inner self to help you develop a more positive mental attitude. Mayrock uses a series of “roems” – or rap poems – to inspire readers to express their feelings as a way to overcome their fears. The Survival Guide to Bullying is much more than a how-to book about coping with bullies because it gives you the tools to unlock the happy person inside you.
