Bully Books

According to the National Center for Education Statistics, nearly one-third of teens reported being bullied from middle school to high school in 2007.  Bullying takes many forms but most often starts as one-on-one physical bullying at the elementary level.  As students grow older, emotional and cyber bullying tend to dominate.  This booklist is designed for...anyone working with teens and tweens to help address, through literature, the emotional and physical aspects of bullying and its effect on the bullies, the bullied, and the bystanders.
