I, Bully addresses the serious issue of cyber bullying. What makes this story unique is that it is told from the perspective of both the bully and the victim. The two main characters, the victim, Hannah, and the bully, Eric, learn from each other in ways they could never have imagined. Hannah is a typical young girl in grade 8. She’s completely focused on friends and feels her family doesn’t understand. Hannah also feels invisible and her perception is that her older sister gets all the attention. It’s a good, middle-class family, but struggling. Eric is also in grade 8, but his family is dysfunctional. Dad drinks and mom is barely keeping it together. Eric is filled with rage and takes it out on everyone. Eventually, spirit quests and restorative justice help build relationships that lead to enlightenment and reconciliation. Roy Dimond’s exciting new novel I, Bully will empower and touch all who read it.
