Book Review: Bullied to Death?: A Story Of Bullying, Social Media, And The Suicide Of Sherokee Harriman by Judith A. Yates

This was a hard book to read. Sherokee was ignored when she asked for help, by her own family, her friends, and her school. This child grew up in a dysfunctional way. Bullying was not the only problem she had to deal with.
Yates did a wonderful job of following Sherokee's story. She did a lot of background work on her story. She also included tons of information for anyone considering suicide, or those being bullied.
I was disappointed in the fact that the story didn't really make it clear exactly what happened with Sherokee on the day the stabbing occurred. Were the other children involved? Did someone else do this to her? I guess we will never know because she is not here to tell us. It is a sad ending to a sad story.

*Thank you to NetGalley, Judith A. Yates, and the publisher for allowing me to read an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
