    1. Everyone should read this book! It deals with the issue of bullying in school and the effects that it has. It is a short read but really puts things into perspective. I always recommend this book to the teen/tweens that come into my library. Amazing Anti-Bullying book.

    2. This book really surprised me! I’ll admit to not expecting much from it. It was one I found at the library and I did not read any reviews before I started it. I could not put this book down once I started! I was up late at night and picked it up first thing to next morning to finish it. I really liked Sheridan. She was a very strong character and wanted to make a difference with her life. Ashley also added an interesting perspective to the story. I would definitely recommend it!

    3. This book was so greatRecommend to everyone young and old and to all who are bullies, name callers, haters and all around mean you most definitely need to read this and hopefully learn something and then turn your life aroundMy Momma always said if you can't say something nice keep your mouth shut!!! I agree I do know I was always the one who stood up for the weak and although we as kids said mean things we always made up and were friends againNow you have internet, Facebook,Twitter and other me [...]

    4. This was an interesting look at bullying, told from three perspectives, the diary of a bullied girl Ribbon, who killed herself, the new girl Sheridan who finds the diary in her locker, and one of the bullies Ashley who used to be best friends with Ribbon until she chose to be a mean girl instead of a real friend.I think this was a powerful book that should be in every school library. Some of the quotes from this book really touched me… “What’s so funny about being mean? I don’t know what [...]

    5. Originally posted on Pawing Through Books on 2/28/12Locker 572 by L.T. Kodzo was a great read that I wasn't expecting so much from. I was pleasantly surprised! It is told in three different perspectives. You see the story through the eyes of Sheriden trying to help Ribbon and take action against bullying, through the eyes of Ribbon through her journal entries, and through the eyes of Ribbon's best friend from elementary school, Ashley, who was one of Ribbon's bullies during high school.Caution m [...]

    6. EDIT: I moved my rating up one star, considering the fact that, although I didn't think it was great, it was a welcome reprive from other things I was reading, and was enjoyable. I was disappointed in this book. I found out Locker 572 from an ad in a Christian magazine, and almost bought it off a Christian book website. ( I ended up getting it from - cheaper.) :) I was expecting it to have a more Christian theme, and aproach to bullying. Instead, I found the same old, same old things counselors [...]

    7. This book sat in my to read pile for awhile. Someone recommended it to me, awhile back so I bought it on sale one day and never really picked it up, except to move it from one shelf to another.Wish I would have picked it up earlier. It will now be a book that I never part with.Bullying, something I never personally dealt with, but something I know happens on a regular basis. The story hit on just the surface of the issue telling just enough of the story for your heart to break, for you to want t [...]

    8. Interesting take on the subject of bullying and suicide. Although the reader knows what happened to Ribbon right away (book summary anyone?) the characters do not. And it's what happens afterwards that shows their true character and emotion. One tries to help while the other ignores her responsibility at first and then wallows in guilt over it.The latter was interesting to read about but she isn't isn't the best example and goes from one extreme to the other. While the statistics about suicide i [...]

    9. Given the focus on eliminating the issue of bullying in our schools and neighborhoods, this book is timely, relevant and an accurate description of what children struggle with today. The characters are so well developed, the story leaves me wanting more than the last page and the reality of each chapter left me inspired to help make a difference. For anyone whose experienced bullying at the hands of a mean-spirited person, or for those who have been spared, it will be a book you can't forget. Th [...]

    10. I found this book totally by accident. It was in the adult section of the library. I am so glad I picked it up. The story is one that anybody that deals with teens should know about. The story it tells seems to be happening too much in schools today. I will have to let librarian know that maybe this would be a great book to feature in the teen lit section also. Well written and thought out. The story is relevant on many levels. As adults we sometimes miss the pain of teens and want to make thing [...]

    11. This was one of my favorite book i really don't think that Ribbon should have died. And when ever she died should have of died of natural causes. I also like how they made the ribbons not only for the girls but for the boys too. The girls most likely would have put them in their hair. And for the boys they would have out them on their back packs i thought that, that was a great idea. And for the record i feel that they ended the book wrong but never the lest it was still an excellent book. i enc [...]

    12. This book was suggested to me because I am a foster parent and while it didn't exactly focus on that aspect of the story as much as I thought it would it still was a good book. It tells the story of a victim of bullying from her perspective through her journal, from the perspective of a child in foster care who is new to the school and discovers the journal in the victim's former locker, and from the viewpoint of one of the bullies. An interesting story that students and adults should take the t [...]

    13. The first chapter almost made me not want to read this book. It was so over the top, something from a bad lifetime movie. However I kept going and I'm glad I did. I enjoyed everyone's perspective behind the issue of bullying and not doing anything to stop bullying.

    14. Actual rating 2.75 This was not a bad book and it has an important message and I related quite a bit but something about it just didn't click with me. I would still recommend it for readers still in high school though.

    15. This book had a good message and I think would be a valuable read for any teenager, parent, and teacher. It's so much easier to just look away and ignore this behavior which only contributes to the problem. I wish we had more kids like Sheridan!

    16. So somehow I forgot to review this book when I read it, lol. I don't know how, because it was amazing! Moving and well-written, L.T. Kodzo told a brilliant and original story that I definitely recommend!

    17. Who is to blame when a bullied girl commits suicide is a common theme in the ya lit I've been reading lately. I liked that this book included social action to deal with this problem as part of the plot. However, I just didn't care for the style of writing.

    18. Every parent should read this book WITH their child. A very strong message that as sad as it is needs to be discussed nation and world wide.

    19. Great story! Love the fact that one troubled teen takes charge to help another whom she doesn't even know. The middle needed a little more work but all in all. Wonderful story

    20. This book looked at the impact of bullying and suicide from more than one perspective. Believable characters that were easy to identify with. Great quick read.

    21. A very important book for all students to read! A great read about how bullying affects all kinds of people.
