Bullies made Andrew’s whole seventh-grade year a nightmare. Bullies forced Jaevon to change schools and get into fights. Emily’s “friends” picked at her until she was a carcass. From all kids of backgrounds, kids and grownups talk openly about their experiences of being bullied. Their honest, moving stories will resonate with the many children who have undergone bullying of all kinds—emotional and physical—and who have tried to deal with it alone or with help. Arresting photos by Steven Vote draw us into the lives of these brave people.
