Hi Diane--Your book looks very interesting!  We did some articles and reviews on the topic of Bullying on our site a couple months ago and will be covering the topic again sometime after the school year starts up.  This sounds like  a good book to feature.

Dear  Julia Kennedy,

I am sending a similar message out to all my  groups.   Some of my book reviews from  the books  I  worked so hard on were taken  down.    Please if  you have a problem  with any of my book posts being inappropriate, please email me with guidelines as to what  books  are unacceptable and which books are acceptable.

What a better way to open up the discussion of bullying with your son or daughter than to  read   Diary of a Victim.   This is  a topical book about a slightly disabled 80s teen who gets so disgusted with   being bullied, that she  decides to give the bullies a taste of their own medicine.

I'm interested in connecting with any parents who have written books about their personal family experiences or any parenting authors.  At we have hosted live conversations with authors on topics as diverse as step-parenting, talking with teens, problems that boys tend to have in school, and the effects of media on girls.
