In the age of Facebook, sexting, and instant messaging, bullying is no longer a one-on-one activity. Nor is it just a mean prank: More than fourteen percent of high school students have considered suicide and almost seven percent have attempted it—and bully victims are between two and nine times more likely to contemplate self-destruction than non-victims. Emily Bazelton's Sticks & Stones doesn't simply sound an alarm. Using case studies and interviews, it tackles root problems and real-world solutions, demolishing along the way several common misperceptions and simplistic solutions. Editor's recommendations.
