A few months ago, I was asked to contribute a bullying-related story to be included within a collection my lovely friend Rhoda Belleza was compiling and editing, and received two advanced reading copies of said collection in the mail the other day.
So, here’s what you need to know: It’s called Cornered, it features fifteen stories of bullying and defiance (as described in its subheading), and it comes out in July. And it’s glorious. I will most likely slot in more reminders closer to its release date, but, for now, let’s leave it at that.
On a related note, I saw The Neverending Story today (in the theatre! I cried!), and can think of no better examples of bullying and defiance than Bastian’s own journey from dumpster to luck dragon.I challenge you to prove me wrong! JUST TRY. YOU WILL FAIL.
Wow. He really showed ’em.
