Overview

"Hungry Minds" is a very short autobiographical tale about bullying, reading, and what lies in the heart of a writer: especially a very young one. In the brief essay, the writer discusses awkward and painful experiences related to entering Junior High School. It is written from the juvenile perspective and is appropriate for young readers.

Author's Note: The little girl on the cover is me back in the 70s. "Hungry Minds" is a story about childhood bullying and how a love of reading and fictional characters saved my life as I was frequently isolated and often depressed. Much of the bullying I experienced in childhood was related to being the biracial child of interracial parents, but the story is focuses on bullying related to being a shy and studious child. While the type of bullying I experienced is less prevalent now, many children experience bullying today. My heart goes out to them.

    This book is a quick and easy read

    I like this book because i can relate to it. I was always the girl who got laughed at and tormented. Its a quick 12 pages of basicly a girls life when she is young. Kids who know how to read should be required to read this. It may not seem very powerfull but just perhaps it could stop some of our bully problems. :))

    This story resonated with me highly because of my own similar experiences. I was fortunate enough to get a guest spot on Sumiko Saulson's blog to promote my own work, but instead I wrote a sort of response to this story. I think it raises awareness on a topic that is so highly addressed, but still not fixed: Bullying. My personal thanks to the author for this story!
