Banned book – Young Adult – dealing with bullying and depression

You have been warned … this book listed below contains some drug use & sexuality.

‘ “People involved with teaching boys, especially English teachers, know how important books like this are because they speak to boys about the things that other boys’ books don’t have the firepower or the vitality to do effectively,” he said.’

‘ “The book was never about sex and drugs, it was always about bullying people and how that damages people for the rest of their lives. That is really the underlying theme, everything else is just the trappings that go along with that.” ‘
