And I am really glad that the storyline wasn’t all happily ever after with the two boys being besties and all is crwcked as anyone who knows anything about bullying knows that is not likely.

Everything that Bull has pent up from home he lets loose on Victor who, rather than fight back, takes it. The consequences of suddenly losing the only outlet for your anger are nonexistent, and Bull just goes k.mm.walton to live a perfect like with some funeral gardener.
Return to Book Page. Girls they met in rehab who had also been suicidal. It really emphasized the point that even though these two boys came from very different places and situations, they both had plenty of reasons to be unhappy and hurting.
Both boys plans go astray and both end up in the suicidal psych ward at the hospital……where surprise, surprise they end up sharing a room.
Going, then I think you have a new hero to add to your bookshelves. I am disappointed and shocked and disgusted. A teen takes a bottle of pills and lands in the psych ward with the bully who drove him to attempt suicide in this gripping novel.
Aug 26, Mahra rated it it was amazing Shelves: Will Enjoyed reading this book so so so much!!! When they, too, had just days before attempted suicide. I thought I would loathe him because he is a bully. All criticisms aside, K.m.wxlton was well and truly satisfied by the ending of ctacked novel.
This boy likes books and poetry and while you never really like him because he is a really mean bully you understand that behind the j.m.walton is another bully. The pace is a bit overwhelming with how fast the events move, since Bull and Victor are only in the psych ward for five days. Overall, this is a very powerful book that touches on the ever-present topic of bullying.
The characters seemed to be the strongest point of the book.
The bad parts were bad, but the simplistic solutions, and overly neat ending made everything that came before seem crackee significant.
If one of them had had this experience, I’d have been okay with it. I’m considering reading this book aloud to my Grade 8 students.

The characters and writing were both weak in my opinion. My actual rating for this book would be a 3. In her free time she can be found binge watching The Office with her husband and baby, spending way too much time on Pinterest or exploring her neighborhood. Preview — Cracked by K.

This story seemed more of a lesson in “don’t judge a book by its cover” than in bullying. Then there is the second boy. Mar 10, Mary-Megan rated it it was ok. But first, I’ll be honest with you And did I mention all the hot girls in the psych ward that are super popular but k.k.walton think you’re a wonderful, amazing person who needs to live?
And I feel that five days and all their problems are solved is a little-very- unrealistic. Teaching became a reality for K. Tell us what you like, so we can send you books you’ll love. They’re also very good at sounding like ads k.m.wqlton twelve-step self-esteem programs.
That’s what has happened to Victor.
