Please Stop Laughing at Me
My book is Please Stop Laughing at Me. This novel is about a girl named Jodee Blanco who was constantly bullied. She moved schools multiple times throughout her years in High School and everywhere she went she would get more and more afraid of a new start because she was bullied constantly throughout her other schools. Jodee said ¨What a desperate, pathtic 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¨ (pg. 128). Jodee also had a deformation in her breasts one of them was bigger than the other, during the summer before her senior year she got a boob job to fix her breasts. Jodee parents never really addressed her situation going on at the school and she never stood up for herself. At the end of the book, Jodee was invited to a high school reunion she spent tons of time in her car when she got there debating on whether she would go in or not, she decided to take a big step and go see all those faces that ruined her self confidence when she got in there, everyone who bullied her apologized and she realized that people do change.
