Synopsis

In her poignant work, Jodee Blanco tells how school became a frightening and painful place, where threats, humiliation, and assault were as much a part of her daily experience as bubblegum and lip-gloss were for others. It is an unflinching look at what it means to be an outcast, how even the most loving parents can get it wrong, why schools fail, and how bullying is both misunderstood and mishandled.

While Please Stop Laughing at Me does not thoroughly address every bullying issue — and the reader may not agree with all of Blanco's conclusions — it does provide valuable information on an often ignored subject.
