A companion book to the acclaimed documentary film that inspired a national conversation, BULLY is packed with information and resources for teachers, parents, and anyone who cares about the more than 13 million children who will be bullied in the United States this year. From commentary about life after BULLY by the filmmakers and the families in the film, to the story of how Katy Butler’s petition campaign helped defeat the MPAA’s “R” rating, BULLY takes the story of the film beyond the closing credits. Celebrity contributions combine with essays from experts, authors, government officials, and educators to offer powerful insights and concrete steps to take, making the book an essential part of an action plan to combat the bullying epidemic in America.
“Potent and provocative.”New York Times, Critics Pick
“Moving and touching… Bully forces you to confront…the extent to which that cruelty is embedded in our schools and therefore in our society as a whole.”TIME
“A documentary as vivid as any horror film, as heartbreaking as any Oscar-worthy drama.”Los Angeles Times
“The film’s cumulative force is considerable.”
“An insightful and moving documentary…By presenting an intimate glimpse into the dark heart of cruelty, the film hopes to inspire substantive discussion among parents, children, and educators on how to deal with this dire and insidious problem.”
"The text deals honestly and realistically with the bullying that is so pervasive in American schools...An excellent resource for educators...Readers who have seen the film will no doubt be interested to discover where its bullied children are now, but the text can also be read as an informative stand-alone resource."Kirkus Review
"A valuable resource that will help empower communities to deal with this deadly social plague."
