The funny thing is, it was only after writing [and reading] this book that I even realized it addressed bullying. The theme that inspired me to write Inside out that of inner beauty; the bullying in the book was simply a vehicle for this message. I think the result was a book that addresses bullying in a unique and perhaps subtle way. There are legions of books available on discouraging bullying and how harmful it is. I have not seen an approach like this one before. Our bully takes a forced look at herself on the “inside.” Yet somehow, the story is still fun and ultimately uplifting. I hope you will give it a try.
