Cornered: 14 Stories of Bullying and Defiance by Rhoda BellezaIt does not necessarily take a fist to create a punch in the gut. This fourteen-story YA fiction anthology delves into the experience of being bullied—socially, emotionally, physically, psychologically, and sexually. The school hallways, walks home, and house walls are no longer the boundaries for intimidation and harassment. With the rapid-fire response time of social media and smartphones, bullying has lost all limits, and the lines among truth, lies, and real accountability have become blurred. Featuring some of the hottest voices in YA literature, both bestselling and on the rise, Cornered includes works from Kirsten Miller (New York Times bestseller The Eternal Ones), Jennifer Brown (Hate List), Elizabeth Miles (Fury), Jaime Adoff (The Death of Jayson Porter), Lish McBride (Morris Award finalist Hold Me Closer, Necromancer), Matthue Roth (Losers), Sheba Karim (Skunk Girl), Kate Ellison (Butterfly Clues), Zeta Elliot (A Wish After Midnight), Josh Berk (The Dark Days of Hamburger Halpin), and James Lecesne (Absolute Brightness and founder of the Trevor Project).

Josh’s story: getting bullied at school
Share Your Story. I would like to share my story of how I was bullied and teased for three years in middle school. Bullying is a major problem across the world especially in public schools. I told on the kids and even my parents reported it to the school board and still nothing improved. Bullying and cruel methods ruin lives and it needs to be stopped, this is not normal, it must be stopped once and for all to have a peaceful world for all. My story starts all the way back to 3rd grade when I met a kid named A and we hit it off and became the best of friends. I got to the cafeteria to find he was hanging out with some new people.
I just turned 12 when I left elementary school and started secondary education. Going to school was not a good idea. At least not for me …. The first couple of months were doable. It took me quite a while to adapt to the new situation.
With summer break slowly coming to an end , you might be getting anxious about the upcoming school year. And for those who are victims of bullies, the first day of school can be particularly frightening.

Sharing stories with children in our homes and classrooms offers many rich opportunities to relate to one another, to share wisdom and communicate feelings. Story-telling can even elevate our mood and give us hope. It can bring a group together, help us see similarities, and it can help us make sense of one another and ourselves. Together, we spoke with conference attendees about the benefits of engaging and connecting students through stories — whether through the short stories found in HEAR or with books and films, like The Fat Boy Chronicles — stories carefully designed with specific age groups, messages and lessons in mind. He knows that kids are trying to figure out the world and where they belong.
