Sticks and Stones

By Emily Bazelon
Bullying, once thought of as the province of thugs and queen bees, has taken on new, complex and insidious forms that any parent with a school-aged kid is all too familiar with. In this book, the author has produced a clear-eyed journey into the shifting landscape of teenage meanness and its consequences.


    REVIEW QUOTES
"Intelligent, rigorous . . . [Emily Bazelon] is a compassionate champion for justice in the domain of childhood's essential unfairness."--Andrew Solomon, "The New York Times Book Review" "[Bazelon] does not stint on the psychological literature, but the result never feels dense with studies; it's immersive storytelling with a sturdy base of science underneath, and draws its authority and power from both."--"New York" "A humane and closely reported exploration of the way that hurtful power relationships play out in the contemporary public-school setting . . . As a parent herself, [Bazelon] brings clear, kind analysis to complex and upsetting circumstances."--"The Wall Street Journal" "Bullying isn't new. But our attempts to respond to it are, as Bazelon explains in her richly detailed, thought-provoking book. . . . Comprehensive in her reporting and balanced in her conclusions, Bazelon extracts from these stories useful lessons for young people, parents and principals alike.""--The Washington Post" "A serious, important book that reads like a page-turner . . . Emily Bazelon is a gifted writer, and this powerful work is sure to place childhood bullying at the heart of the national conversation--right where it belongs."--Susan Cain, author of "Quiet" "Bullying is misunderstood. Not all conflict between kids is bullying. It isn't always clear who is the bully and who is the victim. Not all--or even most--kids are involved in bullying. And bullying isn't the only factor in a child's suicide, ever. Emily Bazelon, who wrote about the subject for Slate in 2010, here expands her reporting in an important, provocative book about what we can--and can't--do about the problem."--"The Boston Globe" "In "Sticks and Stones" . . . journalist and editor Emily Bazelon brings a sure hand and investigative heft to her exploration of bullying, which, in the era of social media, includes both digital and old-fashioned physical cruelty."--"Los Angeles Times"
