Bully in the Mirror blends facts about the negative effects of bullying with the author's views, as she was a victim of bullying herself. Readers learn how bullies operate and how to stop them in their tracks.
Bullying is everywhere....and so is media coverage of bullying. In recent months, Ladies Home Journal, The Week, Redbook, and New York Times have all run articles on bullying. Episodes of Hannah Montana and Glee have dealt with bullying, and MTC launched a reality TV show called Bully Beatdown in 2009. Even the US Government is concerned; the Department of Health and Human Services has an interactive website dedicated to cyber-bullying. Bully in the Mirror can be a powerful part of the solution. The book blends facts about the negative effects of bullying with the author's views. Since Shanaya is a 13 year old girl who has been bullied, her experiences and those of her friends create an immediate connection with today's kids. Each chapter provides important facts along with tips and exercises Shanaya created. Readers learn how bullies operate and how to stop them in their tracks.
About the author
Shanaya Fastje launched her career as a published author at the age of eight and became an inspirational speaker at the age of ten when she entered the first of her popular Mystery School series in a national book-writing contest and was selected “extraordinary book” from over 3,000 entrants. Two more volumes followed before she turned her attention to developing a hugely successful presidential award-winning anti-bullying program, which has been outlined in this book. Shanaya has been called upon to speak before tens of thousands of people, spreading the message that “bullies are all about power, this power is fake, and the real power is with the bystander and the victims.” Applying her deep understanding of the dynamics of bullying, she successfully averted several tragic child suicides through individual coaching. Shanaya is the recipient of many awards, including one by President Barack Obama, Governor Rick Perry, and by her hometown of El Paso, Texas, which also proclaimed March 15, 2011, Shanaya Fastje Day.Homeschooled at her request since she was nine years old, Shanaya is now thirteen and has graduated high school. A talented musician, composer, and actress, she is currently writing her fifth book—her first fiction novel—in hopes for the possibility of adaption for film or television. She has recorded her first single and music video with aspirations for an album. Shanaya now lives in Los Angeles, California, where she is further developing all areas of her career.
