    One thought on “Vicious: True Stories by Teens About Bullying”

    1. This is 3 and a half stars, I am rounding up because:1. These stories were written by teens, and it is meant for age 13 and up, so can't expect depth or level of writing to be other than what it is.2. This is such an important subject. Bullying is close to my heart because I was bullied from ages 5 to 15 pretty much every year. 3. This is a great classroom book, to have on the shelf, and if I were a teacher I'd give Extra Credit to whichever kid read this and wrote a report, over crap like Twili [...]

    2. This book did get me to think about my toddler granddaughter, and how I would not want her to suffer from being bullied, and also to develop her at a young age so that she will grow up being nice and considerate to others. I read this book because it was included on the 2015 United Methodist Women's Reading Program list in the Nurturing For Community-Youth category.Very short stories are included here about bullying, both by some who do it and those who receive it. Bullies tend to feel more powe [...]

    3. It was alright--I think if you work with kids who have experienced bullying it's good to have real-life stories available for them to read--but I think there are probably better ones out there. Plus kids are bullied for such different reasons that I think they'd be more likely to identify with kids that went through the same *kinds* of bullying than stories that just have victimization in common.

    4. This book would be a good classroom reading choice. As I read these teens' accounts of their experiences, some of them inevitably triggered memories of my own. I would never want to relive my teenage years; and the only thing I am thankful for is that Facebook and camera phones were far into the future. One aspect of these stories I was relived to find was that at least the bullied students had one or two good friends on whom to fall back on; I had years of having no friends at all.

    5. I didn't realize it when I checked this book out that it was written primarily for a younger audience. It included several stories of kids being bullied. As a former victim of bullying it gave me perspective and I don't think it ever hurts for an adult to have a better understanding of bullying. It also described a few cyberbullying situations which I found enlightening because this was not going on yet when I was in school.

    6. I just finished reading this to my 11 year old daughter. A lot of the scenarios aren't something she has had to deal with yet, but some she has. This book was a great way to get dialogue going about bullying and how to cope with it if it ever happens. It also shows why you shouldn't partake in bullying yourself.

    7. Interesting stories from students who were bullied. Bullying, especially today with the easy availability of social media, is rampant. Why do these kids need to lash out and injure others? Many think it stems from the home-lives of these kids. We need to love our children and hold them tightly. They need us.

    8. This book Vicious is about teens and there bullying life. In the book the types of bullying are Cyber bullying and regular bullying.

    9. It's terrible what young people are going through in bullying and being bullied. These young authors tell how they've survived both by realizing they must treat others as they want to be treated.
