Sure, you can talk to your teacher or principal if you're being bullied, but what do you do if they don't listen? It's a difficult position to be in, but as bullying expert and author of the new book BULLIED KIDS SPEAK OUT: We Survived --- How You Can Too Jodee Blanco explains in this blog post, it's not hopeless.
At Teenreads, we love to review the latest and greatest YA books to hit the shelves. However, we recognize that older books --- sometimes much older books --- have plenty of value, too. In this blog series, Teen Board member Alison S. is writing about some of her favorites and how they remain relevant today. Read below for her third post, about the modern classic Douglas Adams' THE HITCHKIKER'S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY.
What would you do if you weren't the biggest fan of your classmates, and then a notebook bursting with scandalous secrets about them came into your possession? Piper Woods, the protagonist of Natalie D. Richards' new thriller GONE TOO FAR faces this very dilemma, and when a horrible tragedy and an anonymous text nudge her to start exposing, she begins a spiral that's almsot impossible to stop. Teenreads is thrilled to participate in the GONE TOO FAR blog tour. Below, you can learn more about the book, read an excerpt AND enter for a chance to win a copy of the book!  
What do you do when you want something that doesn't exist? Invent it, of course! This was Teen Board member Aspen R.'s thinking when she noticed that her school didn't have any book-themed newsletters, and decided to start her own. Below, Aspen tells us about the process and how it's worked out so far. Maybe her post will inspire you to start a newsletter at your school!
