Will anyone listen? Can anyone help?
A dramatic, heart-wrenching story about the power of bullying, and the power of love, family and community to overcome it.” – Usborne I Am Jack

Customer Review of I Am Jack:
“Every parent, teacher and student should read this book. It should be read together and discussed. It is so simple and yet so common. Being bullied is so very horrible for a young person and their emerging self esteem. Bullying is real. Read this book! Maybe, just maybe it will help a to be bully not say the joke that really is not funny. Or maybe it will give the friend the courage to tell someone that can help. Or what if the victim found the courage to look the bully in the face and say no.”
