You Can’t Shatter Me – Dealing with Bullies

This looked like a lot of fun – all of her books do. Tahlia Newland writes Urban Fantasy, YA, Contemporary fantasy and more. I really DO need to get an e-reader soon (Santa?)

From author Tahlia Newland: You Can’t Shatter Me.

When superhero wanna-be, Carly, stands up to a bully, he turns on her, forcing her to battle cutting words, flying hooks, a doubt dragon and a suffocating closet. Her karate-trained boyfriend, Dylan’s desire to stop the harassment sets off a struggle to control his inner caveman. Meanwhile, Carly searches for inner strength and a peaceful solution. Will she find it before Dylan resorts to violence?

This heart-warming magical realism story offers real solutions for handling bullying that will inspire and empower teens and adults alike. 

The biggest, and possibly radical, contribution that this book makes to solving the bullying issue is that it lays out a method of gaining self-esteem on the deepest level, a way to strengthen empathy into love, a force powerful enough to change the way you relate to yourself and to others, and them to you.
