Please Stop Laughing At Me
Summary Of The Story
Please Stop Laughing At Me by Jodee Blanco is based on a true story of how when she was younger, and all through high school, she got bullied. Jodee started off as another popular classmate. She became friends with a disabled child and everyone started to hated her. Jodee and her parents decided it was best to move her to another school. In doing so, the popularity came back. Until she was invited to a party with her friend Callie. There they played strip spin the bottle and kiss and tell. Jodee got so uncomfortable to the point where she called her mother and said on page 59 “mom, please pick me up. Kids are doing it in the closet.” That caused the party to get shut down and soon everyone hated her again. The beatings never stopped. It got so bad to the point where she had to see a therapist. As Jodee grew, she started to develop. But developed incorrectly. She had a different body than everyone else. She didn’t want anyone knowing so she hid under layers of clothing. That didn’t stop anyone. She eventually graduated and years passed. Jodee was very successful. Then came the high school reunion. Jodee got so nervous for nothing. Everyone was kind and regretful and realized how dumb they were. They then all had a good time at the reunion and Jodee was finally happy again.
