Being a teenager has never been easy, but in recent years, with the rise of the Internet and social media, it has become exponentially more challenging. Bullying, once thought of as the province of queen bees and goons, has taken on new, complex, and insidious forms, as parents and educators know all too well. No writer is better poised to explore this territory than Emily Bazelon, who has established herself as a leading voice on the social and legal aspects of teenage drama.

I read this book after reading Emily Bazelon’s articles on Slate.com. Bazelon examines bullying from multiple angles. She writes about the perspectives and experiences of victims of bullying, accused bullies, parents, teachers, school administrators, and research scientists who study the topic. Towards the end of the book she describes some success stories from people who have tried different tactics to end bullying. Overall, the book covers a lot of ground on what is a very complicated issue.
