Review on Amazon By Blog Sniper
I gave this book a five star rating as it not only addresses all forms of bullying, but it provides solutions to addressing any issue that an individual may be experiencing through a bully type situation whether it be child/adult. It’s nice to see that the author unveils some of her own personal life experiences, which allows you to relate to her on a personal level. Often individuals are afraid to discuss the horrible things they have endured in life out of shame, or the mere fact of how it may impact others. We must all remember that through life we will encounter challenges some difficult some easy all of these things will only prepare us to be the best we can be in this life. Be encouraged grab a copy awesome read!
