Please stop laughing at me was about this girl named Jodie Blanco that got bullied starting in 5th grade. She is a very nice girl that is bullied for standing up for what is right and not letting others get bullied. She moves schools to try and start fresh but no matter where she goes she gets bullied. She has been beaten up and threatened and made so upset that one day she grabs a knife and cut her face. She tells her teachers and parents but they say to toughen up and it's a part of being a kid.“What a desperate, pathetic fool I was. Time after time, my “friends” had shown me their true colors. Yet, I still wanted to believe they were sorry for causing me pain,” page 128
