HOW FAT GIRL BECAME PHAT GIRL, ONE OF THE COOLEST GIRLS IN SCHOOL!

 

DETAIL
Holly attends high school. She has been bullied for over two and a year years by a pack of five girls.

 

Considering suicide after having attended her friends funeral, who was bullied to death, and enduring yet another bully attack, she comes upon a cornflower blue totem, which transports her to an alternate world where only the truth can exist.

 

It is in the alternate world, having discovered the existence of the sankara parasite through interactions with various people, that she finds the strength to stand up to the bullies.

 

Holly has to contend with a mother who drinks, a brother who is fighting on the front line, and her own feeling of worthlessness that has her self-harming using a razor blade.

The story follows the transitions of some of the students, from friend to bully and back again, and also from bully to friend.

 

I have included a comment about the book received from one of my beta readers, it better explains the value of the story; Breakthrough. Love how you handled telling anyone who has been bullied how to stop it. You show a place where the hurt can be taken, and then dealt with and make a person feel empowered to deal with that hurt. You give hope and strength and guidance to get the word out about what is happening.

 

You tell them they are people and need to be nothing less, you give an escape for the person living in the loneliness to shed the layers and make them feel that they should not be the victim, but each time they reveal, the layers are shed. The secret is death, bringing the problem into the light is life.

 

I love what you are doing here. Everyone needs to read this, who is going through this problem.

Rips at the heart of life. The truth of the matter is poured out here Escape is the only desire. Δ

Andi's Comments:

 

Title; Phat Girl & The Bullies Sub-title; Phat Girl & The Sankara Parasite, by Andi Katsina


This is an extremely important book. It has a powerful message and is pivitol in empowering those who are victims of bullying. Aimed at teens it takes a strong stand against teen suicide and school bullying.

 

Bullying effects a huge proportion of society in that nearly everyone knows someone, be it a friend, sister, brother, parent, grandchild, uncle, aunt... who has been bullied. The fact that people vividly remember being bullied, even in later life, demonstrates how insidious an activity it is. My reason for writing this book was motivated by the growing number of young people who are commiting suicide as a direct result of being bullied, and a desire to help protect all those who feel pushed to the edge.

 

Andi talks about the book

 

  • Teenages are commiting suicide as a way to escape bully situations at school. I believe it is us in society who must take responsibility for a system which has done everything to condone bullying and done next to nothing to bring it to an end .
  • Suicide is ranked third place as being responsible for loss of teenage life in the USA. these statistics are closely shared by many other countries. Essentially, teen suicide is a huge problem and a great percentage of it can be directly related to bullying.
  • If we come together as a society we can implement a zero tolerance for school bullying. Introduce this policy into infant/kindergarten and within a decade school bullying will be all but eliminated!
  • This book is being described as the Anti-Bullying Manifesto, as it empowers the bullied, and goes far to encourage bullies to cease and desist.
