It is an unflinching look at what it means to be the outcast, how even the most loving parents can get it all wrong, why schools are often unable to prevent disaster, and how bullying has been misunderstood and mishandled by the mental health community.You will be shocked, moved, and ultimately inspired by this harrowing tale of survival against insurmountable odds.
