BacklashWritten by Sarah Darer Littman

This book really catches the reader’s attention right at the beginning. I enjoyed the book very much. It follows the story of a young girl who attempts suicide, and the events leading up to the attempt. It also highlights the events of the aftermath and turns a different direction to follow the story of a cyber-bully who influenced this suicide attempt. It tells how sometimes things get bad for someone, but their is definite backlash for the people who are involved in making others’ lives miserable. Overall, great story! Gives you so much insight to the affects of cyber-bullying, and how bad it really is.
