Amanda Todd was a young girl who was lured into a bad decision by a cyber-stalker and then mercilessly targeted online and in real life over and over again, until it became too much for her to handle and she ended her life in October of 2012.
She wanted to help other kids by sharing her story and letting them know they should never be punished for who they are or for making a mistake. AmandaToddLegacy.org is an organization that reaches out to kids in need, educates about the harmful effects of bullying and provides resources that can make a real difference.
100% of the proceeds from sale of this anthology will be donated toward that vision. 16 of the most popular and bestselling authors in Contemporary Romance, Erotic Romance and Young Adult have come together in support of the fight against bullying. Each has contributed a new short stories or missing scene from their most popular series for this very worthy cause.
If you are being bullied, please stay strong and get help. Someone does care.

Karen Avivi is never bored. If the weather is nice, it’s almost impossible for her to stay inside. Karen has tried surfing, skydiving, scuba diving, stunt classes, archery, winter camping, orienteering, mountaineering, mountain biking, and she even attempted a bike ramp once but it didn’t end well. If she’s not reading or writing, she’s usually planning a new adventure.
I wrote my first novel, "Kimberly and the Seventh Grade Disaster", when I was thirteen years old. Good thing it never saw the light of day. In the years since, I continued writing stories, earned a degree in creative writing from Concordia University, read a lot of books (some over and over, like Catcher in the Rye), watched a lot of movies, got married and became a stepmom. The Pool Theory is my first novel that strangers are allowed to read. To read more about the book: www.thepooltheory.com To read more about me: www.alexanazzaro.com
Raine Miller has been reading romance novels since she picked up that first Barbara Cartland book at the tender age of thirteen. And it's a safe bet she'll never stop, because now she writes them too! Granted Raine's stories are edgy enough to turn Ms. Cartland in her grave, but to her way of thinking, a hot, sexy hero never goes out of fashion. Writing sexy romance stories pretty much fills her days. Raine has a handsome prince of a husband, and two brilliant sons to pull her back into the real world if the writing takes her too far away. Her sons know she likes to write stories, but gratefully have never asked to read any, thank God! She loves to hear from readers and to chat about the characters in her books. You can contact her at email@example.com or visit www.RaineMiller.com to find out what she's working on now

I have one word. BEAUTIFUL!!!! I have too say that this book hit home for me a few times
Made me really think and wonder how many kids a day are going through things like this
I havenot read any of the books in this anthology, but I applaud the authors for donating their time and effort to this cause. While I do not have children, I do have nieces, nephews and extended family who could be impacted at any time. Not to mention being a part of the community itself. I hope they raise a lot of money, regardless I am happy to have contributed a tiny piece.
Angsty, witty, butterflies while reading..............AWESomE!
