insight for parents and teachers These stories offer strategies to cope and conquer, as well as inspiring and inventive ways to deal with what feels like the undealable, says editor and energy behind the book, Fiona Scott Norman These are stories not only of survival, but of people who ve flourished despite inauspicious beginnings Coincidence Not likely The irony is that the majority of people who are admired and respected in the world probably came from this kind of background I never went to anything cool, the first time I went to a Big Day Out, I wasand playing at it Megan Washington

inspiring advice for kids who don t fit into societies norms Some of the stories will really break your heart, though.Thought this was hysterical, because even in my own insignificant, and very small world this is quite true, so my Favorite Quote A lot of people have really dull lives, and I know, because all the bitches found me on Facebook last year and tried to friend me Megan Washington I couldn t tell you how I came across this book but obviously I did somehow and I m glad I did Bullying will never go away but it could be reduced ifadults got involved and weren t so one sided I couldn t believe so many people I admire were contributors Just goes to show that no matter who are, you can be bullied Each story made me laugh and cry It s definitely a lot easier to look back and see the

never go away but it could be reduced ifadults got involved and weren t so one sided I couldn t believe so many people I admire were contributors Just goes to show that no matter who are, you can be bullied Each story made me laugh and cry It s definitely a lot easier to look back and see the bullies lacking something in some way but actually living through it is the hardest part Also, telling kids that school is the best days of your life is complete crap It is such a misnomer, I can t even begin If society madeof an effort to stamp out bullying, then we d be able to co exist in a simpler and easier way If you think you know a kid or teenager going through a rough time, this a book that will help start them on a supportive journey knowing that they will never be alone Much of my school years are lost to me in the mists of time so they could not have been life defining as they were for so many of the celebrities in this worthy tome I cannot remember being bullied, at least not in school, nor do I remember it as a particularly happy or unhappy time I recall some very good teachers, a couple of disgraceful ones and the developing of a love for history I recall some great mates one still in my life some four decades later and being woeful at many subjects Much of my school years are lost to me in the mists of time so they could not have been life defining as they were for so

couple of disgraceful ones and the developing of a love for history I recall some great mates one still in my life some four decades later and being woeful at many subjects Obviously I then became a teacher The notables in Don t Peak at High School are a mixed bunch, but all rose above their dreadful school days to prominence, despite the best efforts of foul bullies to inflict pain, mental degradation and generally to make their lives miserable Tim Ferguson, in a newspaper article to mark the book s release, tells of the ultimate payback sadly not reencountered in his candid chapter, and Brendon Cowell rightly tracks the sad life path post school for most bullies But far too many victims do find themselves unable to rise above it all then and into adulthood, with some tragically even giving the ultimate justification of the necessity to tackle this odious problem.In my long experience being responsible for behaviour management in schools, most bullies are simply thick thugs, male and female the truly dangerous few are the intelligent ones A book like this would never sway the majority from their desire to belittle others as they are mostly miserable within themselves, and lack the nous to work out why They will do anything in order to bignote themselves in front of their pathetic acolytes They would never understand even the accessible language used in the book, despite all the cussing To buy borrow it would not enter their heads It will though hopefully provide some solace for their victims I was moved by some of the ordeals of those featured, particularly Wendy Harmer s Fiona Scott Norman is to be commended for putting this together and in the hands of a dedicated teacher much great work could be done in the classroom with it Now that social networking adds to the misery of many of our young people, this book is a timely and sobering read
