This volume of a four-part autobiography was written to help those middle school students and teenagers who are facing bullies, having suicidal thoughts, or feel that they have no one to turn to for help. Eric understands your pain and frustration being that he was bullied in school and in his neighborhood for many years because he wore glasses and did not dress as well as others. One day, Eric stood up to confront the challenges as he had grown tired of it. Fortunately, it was done so positively in light of so many negative ways to address stressful circumstances. Eric advises you to do so as well. Parents must realize that children are in more need of their help and support during these crucial stages of adolescence. The best has yet to come if you are a teen facing these challenges. Don’t worry. Eric understands and has lived through the pain and survived. He wants you to do the same and knows that you can.
