DEAR BULLY edited by Megan Kelley Hall and Carrie Jones

DEAR BULLY is a collection of pieces written by 70 contemporary YA authors who share their own personal experiences with bullies.  Ellen Hopkins, Lisa McMann, Heather Brewer, Chris Crutcher, and JonScieszka are just a few of the contributing authors.

I have only read about half of the selections, but I can say it includes some powerful stuff.  Most stories are only a few pages long, making it an easy volume to pick up and read randomly.  Even though I've chosen to read DEAR BULLY in short spurts, the messages presented have left a lasting impression.  This book should be available in every library and classroom.
