Please Stop Laughing At Me
By: Jodee Blanco
The book Please Stop Laughing at me by, Jodee Blanco, was about school bullying. There's always those people that "don't fit in" or aren't "cool enough" so others bully them. They get physically and mentally abused. This happened to Jodee in and out of school.
In Jodee's Elementary school year things were really good, she loved elementary school. Until fifth grade, That's when she started volunteering with the special needs at her private school. She got really close with a little girl names Marianne. They would hang out with each other in and out of school and on weekends. Jodee's "best friend" got jealous and she hated it. So she told Jodee that she needs to stop being friends with the "retard" or they we no longer friends that's when things started getting bad for Jodee.
Then Jodee went to Morgan Hill Academy which was her knew middle school. Jodee was friends with the "popular kids" but for only a short period of time Jodee's "best friends" were Callie and Debbie. At Callie's Jodee made a big mistake. That's when the bullying began again. It was so bad that Jodee had to transfer schools and a different distract. Jodee’s family thought she needed help and sent her to a doctor.
Then jodee moved schools again, she goes to Northwest Junior high. She made new friends in the neighborhood Emily,Jim,Sam,Ricki,Robbie,Greg,Jason,Kim,Reese, and Paul. They we best friends until one day Jodee stood up for a kid. Then the bullying started again. Jodee didn't deserve what she got. She was emotionally and physically harassed by her so called “best friends”. Being depressed for Jodee became a normal thing, her bed became her best friend,
One day Jodee got a phone call from her father. He told her that she would be going to Stentorian, Athens. Jodee met NIko,Yorgos, and Vangella. The worse part was saying goodbye to them.
After twenty years of being depressed and hurt physically and mentally, Jodee is finally free. Until her high school reunion. She was scared they were gonna remember her. But they always say "the bully never remember but the outcast never forgets".
