Overview

A MUST-READ for every teenager! This is a collection of one girl's personal experiences as a victim of bullying throughout middle and high school, the effect it had on her psyche and her struggle to find her self-worth.

"The stories contained in this book are real, honest, and eye-opening. They are how I, the ugly girl, remember them to have happened. My story has shaped who I am, how I grew up, and what I have become.

Every rumor, every snide remark, every shun was enough to leave a permanent scar on my self-esteem and cause me to question every compliment I would receive.

Those who bullied me, berated me and emotionally beat me down did however give me a strength and resolve I would not have gained otherwise.

Now, I am stronger, more beautiful, and ready to tell my story. So thank you pretty, popular, mean girl, I am better than ever."

    I went to HS with this girl. I never had a problem with her, had a few
    classes with her, but hardly spoke with her. Sad part is, this book is
    full of lies. She caused a lot of the problems she tries to say are
    "bullying". Again, I never personally had a problem with her,
    but I knew plenty of girls who she would talk about, and saw PLENTY of
    text messages from her to my guy friends that she KNEW had girlfriends
    talking about how she would sleep with them etc. Then she wonders why
    girls disliked her? She was smart in HS and I am sure she still is, and
    had great potential but she chose to flaunt herself in a negative light
    and come between many girls and their boyfriends/friends. I feel sorry
    for her, but I feel more sorry for people who actually buy her sob
    story. The stories in this book are sad and false and it doesn't help
    kids get through being bullied if they are just reading distorted lies
    about truths. She brought a lot of what happened to her on herself. I
    feel bad for her.

    I spent my secondary education with this author. After reading

    I spent my secondary education with this author. After reading her book I could not believe how she was portraying herself. I have personal knowledge of what she did and how she acted. I can not count the number of times she manipulated a situation, acted inappropriately or created drama through no actions but her own. I'm amazed that this "author" is being published as a "memoir of bullying". She should be writing fiction for Hollywood. And as for the "mean girls", this author certainly learned from the “mean girls" but not how to be a better person rather how do dish out the same ill treatment and destroy a girls perception of herself by destroying her relationship. If you’re looking for a good FICTION read I would recommend this book, otherwise it is nothing but trying to cash in on being a pretend victim.

    I went to High School with this girl. She dated a friend of mine

    I went to High School with this girl. She dated a friend of mine. Following their break up, she would call another friend of mine and propose ludicrous sexual advances in explicit detail while simultaneously doing the same to me via internet. Neither of us enticed it nor were we entirely sure of how she possessed our screen names and phone numbers. My friend at the time had a girlfriend and knowing this she still continued to try and pursue explicit sexual conversation via telephone while (like I previously mentioned before) doing the same to me via internet. She was never exploited by either of us nor did we make fun of her, we both just found her strange or thought perhaps she was a sex addict. We both went to high school with her  and I can tell you, I've never seen or heard of her being bullied. If she was ever "bullied" it was probably more or less someone calling her out on her extremely questionable behavior. I'm sorry but no one should believe this as it is absolutely not true.

    Reading this made me feel like the whole story wasn't there, but reading the comments about who she really is, makes sense. Not worth the money.

    This girl was the BIGGEST mean girl out there. Went to HS with her, and she would talk about EVERYONE! She started with everyone. Kate is a liar! She needs to be exposed. Tell the entire story Kate! You slept around and flaunted it. You would make friends break their friendships because you would lie about things being said. You were an awful actress too. I'm glad you improved to have the world believe you were actually a victim here. If you are going to write a book and try to be successful on it at least make it a fiction honey! Don't try to act like you had it rough. You need to open your eyes!

    Shame shame. Kate was a wretched girl. She was terrible to those

    Shame shame. Kate was a wretched girl. She was terrible to those whom she did not care for. She would flaunt herself in the most disgusting manner to any male that glanced towards her. What a terrible human being. I had been in a 1 year relationship and was left after my boyfriend had had a months worth of lewd conversations with her. I felt inadequate and terrible about myself. I wouldn't sleep with him, and she used that to her advantage. After enough provocative behavior and provoking she had him wrapped around her little finger. I feel terrible for the children and teens who are forced to listen to the garbage that expels from her mouth!! The only one that was a bully was her! I will say she most likely had terrible self-esteem. That was why she felt the need to sleep with and attempt to sleep with so many of the males we graduated with. Karma will get her for the lies she has told about her fellow classmates. What a disgrace.

    I had the pleasure of meeting kate in person before reading her

    I had the pleasure of meeting kate in person before reading her book. I got to hear her speak in front of complete strangers, and inspire students from across the united states. I can say getting up in front of complete strangers , and sharing her story was remarkable or brave at the least. Kate's story will inspire you, and shed light into one of the biggest growing problems in America and across the country. This book will bring teachers,principles,School Resource Officers,students and Parents into the front lines of high school life. This book will Help those and Inspire those who have or will be bullied, and show those who are Bullies how WORDS can affect someone for a long time! Thank You Kate Your Awesome from an Inspired School Resource Officer.

    Must read!

    I just read this book and I highly recommend it! It was interesting and kept me intrigued until the end. As a parent of a 14 year old daughter, I want her to read it next.
