Please Stop Laughing At Me: One Woman's Inspirational Story

Front Cover
Adams Media, Mar 1, 2003 - Biography & Autobiography - 288 pages

It is an unflinching look at what it means to be an outcast, how even the most loving parents can get it wrong, why schools fail, and how bullying is both misunderstood and mishandled.
