Can't say I found it good. March 3 2014

"Nemesis' was good. The rest . . . the impression I had is that the bullies come out ahead in all cases. Depressing book, with characters always making the worst choice possible.
Great story! March 26 2013

This is a great collection of stories. Stories that are raw, dealing with bullying every, single day. And stories where people have had enough and are finally standing up for themselves.

Let me begin by saying that I had a love/hate thing with this book. One minutes I'd be angry or sad due to an bullying story and when I got in to the defiance story I was all like," HELL YEAH!" LOL! This is a great book filled with awesome stories to give you that emotional roller coaster. Even though the stories were short, you were able to get each character, watch them stand up and face their bully and of course others, taking it every day.

My fave defiance story is Nemsis which is the first story and well its about defiance. I really love the chance at getting revenge for bullying.

If you want stories that really make you see things differently, check this book out. It awesome and powerful. Each story different from the next, you are never left bored. Cornered is a great anthology that gets down to the heart of the matter.
Great fiction all connected to bullying March 14 2013

I don't give out 5 stars lightly. I expected to hear people's personal stories of bullying based on a glance at the book description, but these are short stories, not memoirs. While there was one story I quit reading, I expect everyone will have one they don't like-- and will love most of the others. Very well-written, each story gives insight, and maybe even strength. Most of the stories could appear in any short story collection and be well-received. This is a great read for anyone, but will also be a helpful resource to people studying or dealing with bullying of any kind. I found it helpful to see into the lives of a couple of people dealing with sexual identity/discrimination because of sexual orientation as teens--these stories could serve as resources for people learning about human sexuality of any age, or as something to talk about with a PFLAG group.

the eyes of the bully, from those who are being bullied, and from others who stand on the side and feel powerless to stop what's happening. Edited by Rhoda Belleza, the stories are written by both acclaimed and emerging young adult authors. None of them flinch from the hard truths in the stories they have written.

This honesty makes it hard for readers to look away as they read stories about teens who are beaten up by their tormentors or taunted and emotionally abused in front of classmates and in cyberspace. While it's easy to picture boys as being bullies, girls are often bullies as well. And their victims? They are often the kids who don't fit into the norm in some way. They are gay or lesbian or accused of being so even if they aren't. They often are physically small and have no one to confide in about the abuse. Their home lives may be in turmoil. They hope to fly under the radar long enough to make it out of high school and escape their bullies forever.

In recent times there has been much said about bullying, how to raise awareness of it and how to stop it. While programs aimed at reducing it are undoubtedly doing some good, there is little chance that bullying will be eradicated. Books such as Cornered are important because they bring issues about bullying into the forefront. It looks at the humanity of those who are victims, and, as hard as it may be to believe there is humanity in those who victimize, it looks at that as well.

Some of the stories are difficult to get through. Others have more of a lighthearted feel where victims triumph. All of them will take your breath away. I recommend Cornered for mother-daughter book clubs and any reader aged 14 and up.

The publisher provided me with a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
