Bestselling Author Releases Highly Anticipated First Book In Debut Anti-Bullying Series And Encourages Kids, Parents and Teachers To Take Action
One out of every four students is bullied – 85% of these situations never receive intervention. Bestselling author Nancy Rue recently released So Not Okay, a fiction book for tweens that addresses bullying from the perspective of the bystander. The first book in the Mean Girl Trilogy, So Not Okay teaches invaluable lessons about self-worth and the beauty of true friendship. Rue is now asking kids, parents and teachers to take a stand against bullying and join the #SoNotOkay movement.
“This movement is about solving the problem of bullying from the inside out,” Nancy said, “and that’s going to take all of us coming together!”
