    Being a teenager has never been easy, but in recent years, with the rise of the Internet and social media, it has become exponentially more challenging. Bullying, once thought of as the province of queen bees and goons, has taken on new, complex, and insidious forms, as parents and educators know all too well. No author is better poised to explore this territory than Emily Bazelon, who has established herself as a leading voice on the social and legal aspects of teenage drama.

    Jeffrey says: "An excellent and cogent discussion of the topic."

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, Emily's insights on the changing impact of bullying on teens in the digital age, where there is no escape from their tormentors, reveal much about the challenges that the current generation of teens and parents are facing.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Sticks and Stones?

    Emily's own account of being "fired" by her friends as a teen and how that affected her.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When the author confronted Facebook about a page that had been reported to them as abusive but about which they had taken no action.


    What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

    That the teens that faced criminal charges related to the bullying and subsequent suicide of Phoebe Prince ended up facing very limited legal consequences.


    Any additional comments?

    An excellent read by an excellent author. 5 Stars.
