At what it would look like or sound like Hearing these stories really changed my point of view I love this book because of how much it relates to me and many others I think this book should be read to high schoolers I recommend this book to everyone This novel takes place during one day the one Mr. Fix-It year anniversary of a school shooting that left one student dead Told through the perspectives of four students in a semi journal entry format the reader sees how the shooting and its anniversary affected the town and how such an event could happen Three of the students are part of the outcasts Kurt known at school as freek is made fun of every day and uses his music to retreat Tisha is put down by both the black and white girls because she does not fully belong to either group Floater a self chosen name was picked by the principal to be his eyes and ears Even though he is still not accepted he is mostly left alone because he holds a power over the other students The fourth perspective is Ryan a senior football player and sometimes bullyI loved this book and think it is one that every high school student should read Along with the perspectives of those being hurt we see what leads to the hurtful actions of others and how far those effects reach This novel doesn t sugar coat how teens feel about and react to teasing and abuse which I think is the most important aspect The entries all could have been written by high school students They express the wanting to fit in fear of failure and general confusion that is characteristic of being a teenager Also they show how teenagers can have those moments of clarity when the stakes are high enough and do the right thing despite the potential social conseuences This is a theme I find refreshing inoung adult literature today giving teens credit for what they can do The setting of the book is nondescript enough that it could be in any suburb and the lessons apply to teens at any type of school The characters are each someone that The Complete Photo Guide to Slipcovers you probably pass every day without realizing it except for Ryan By the end I either loved or loathed each character but I did not feel apathetic towards any of them and I wanted each one to get what they deserved out of lifeREAD MORE REVIEWS AT I read Names Will Never Hurt Me by Jaime Adoff and I thought that it was a good bookThroughout the book the main character changes from chapter to chapter I found that style of writing was good to keep the reader interested in what is happening in these kids school life All the students in Names Will Never Hurt Me are very different in what they do and how they are treated by others at school The whole book takes place on one day This day is special to the school because it was a oneear anniversary of a student being killed One of the students is a football star while another character was a nerd and called a freak These students all have their struggles and need to find ways to fix them I would recommend this book to people in high school or college because it is good at telling ou the effects of bullying on other students I wouldn t recommend it to people who know people who suffer from bullying because it might cause them to be sad I think that most people will enjoy reading this book. S and secrets bring each of them to the breaking point Now they must help each other prevent a tragedy The voices of these four teens weave together in prose poetry to create a powerful rea.
