Overview

Every day, all over the country, teenagers struggle with the realities of bullying. Tormented, ridiculed, and beaten—simply for being who they are—these teens face alienation, humiliation, and even the explicit assertion that they have somehow brought this upon themselves, that they should just blend in. Bullied is a series of short stories exploring the world of these teens from several different viewpoints: the victim, the bully, the gay bystander, the straight friend, the concerned parent.

Closeted Bryan wonders why Christian Michaelson doesn't just try to blend in if he hates being bullied so much. Star athlete David isn't a homophobe—after all, he's not afraid of anything. Jonathan, a Christian fundamentalist, must weigh the Bible against peer pressure and what he knows is right when he discovers his childhood friend is gay. Bully victim Chase Devereaux finds an unexpected ally in a brave fellow student. A single mom struggles to accept the reality that her only son is gay. Two tough gay teens are forced to confront their own inner demons when tragedy befalls a classmate they failed to help. And overweight Kirby finds the strength of character to make a friend, which leads to a lifestyle change and a chance at love. Each character grows as an individual as he or she comes to terms with what it means to be a gay teenager in America.

    "BULLIED" (GMTA REVIEW)

    "BULLIED" BY JEFF ERNO

    This book was incredibly moving. It delves deep into several stories of being bullied and how hard it is on the younger generation today. The stories all relate to kids that are homosexual and how they are treated in school by their peers. It also shows how kids are viewed differently depending on their personalities. What I found most interesting is it doesn't matter if a person is homosexual, sometimes they are treated differently depending on how they present themselves rather than their sexual preference. You could have two kids in the same school both with homosexual tendencies and one could be treated fine while the other is treated as an outcast.

    This book is definitely one I would recommend, not just to the younger generation that are homosexual but to any of the younger generation that have bullied or have been bullied. It really does hit home and teaches some profound lessons on what it's like to be in both positions, as well as going in depth into the mind of both the bully and the victim.

    This is one of the issues today that has become more prominent and I very much feel this book gives great insight into the ongoing problem of bullying with our youth.
