I thought this was the most meaningful quote of the book because she almost committed suicide and that would of been a big part of the book.
i rated this book a 4 because i thought it was a really good job explaining what bullying really is, and that you should not bully. Also that i liked how she changed schools because of this problem and how her parents thought it was best she got checked. But what i did not like is how she didn't stand up for herself and what she believed in.
