Suicides of teens due at least in part to bullying. In Utah and Minnesota, students are killing themselves because they’ve been bullied. The sad fact is, that for every one suicide reported there are at least another fifty attempts.
Parents, students, and administrations must work together to make sure each and every public school in America is a safe place to study, no matter WHO their students are.
I stumbled across this video today. I believe we all have to help stop this madness in whatever way we can, so I’m sharing it.
I’m proud to announce the publication of THE BOXER REBELLION on Amazon.com as an e-book!
THE BOXER REBELLION is my latest work. Here’s the description:
Rumor has it that the new kid, sixteen year old Nick Clements, is gay.
The news couldn’t be better for senior quarterback Brent Greene because he needs to distract his fellow students to keep them from wondering about his own orientation; and it dismays Penny Papadopoulos, whose heart first breaks for Nick, and then becomes forever entangled, and scarred, with him.
Tranquility High is a school full of sheeple led by a few bullies. Acts of humiliation, physical assaults, and cyber terrorism, unchecked by teachers forbidden to interfere, is resulting in multiple suicides. When the violence turns to murder Nick and Penny start THE BOXER REBELLION, a desperate attempt to save their own lives and the lives of others.
Teenage cruelty rips away the mask of Minnesota Nice in this coming of age novel set in suburban Minneapolis. THE BOXER REBELLION is a penetratingly frank account of teen suicide and murder. The unique perspectives of those involved give a voice to some of those affected by the thousands of students bullied to death in America every year.
DISCLAIMER – FAIR WARNING:
• People who have experienced teenage bullying first hand may be triggered by this book. For that, the author is truly sorry.
• Those that have only seen gay bashing or bullying amusingly portrayed in sit-coms on TV may be shocked and upset by the all too real life examples in THE BOXER REBELLION. Not everyone has it as easy as Kurt.
• Although THE BOXER REBELLION is about teenagers, the subject matter is mature and intended for legally adult readers. If those aged seventeen and younger wish to read this book, they should get their parents’ permission first.
