I looked through this book after getting it at my library for a friend who wanted to read it. FYI: with a few exceptions, it's almost entirely about girl-girl bullying and girls being sexually harassed by boys. (For instance, there is one story of a male bully who publicly accuses a girl of being a lesbian because she declines to be his girlfriend. I believe my sister went through that once.) If you are a male reader expecting to sympathize with horror stories of male bullying as well, this isn't your book.
