For Avalon, she was also strongly cyber bullied by a group of people on multiple blog pages that were initially started by an anonymous under the username Dragon Girl. She discovered her real friends – Tamara, Marshall, Sukey and Jemima (who were labelled the lamest group in the school). She was driven insane but her charming new best friend, Marshall, taught her to be strong and block it out – which is what she did.

Marshall was grateful the bullies had loosened up on Avalon because he was madly in love with her ever since the first day he laid eyes on her, but on the other hand, he was also devastated he was getting all this undeserved hate.
The three main characters are about to make decisions that will change their lives forever. ‘Destroying Avalon’ is about a fourteen year old girl who moves from the country to the city, and then is cyber-bullied, day and night. Despite the vast difference in style, theme and issues, both novels effectively conveyed their message. Whilst ‘Cinnamon Rain’ was

On this video, Patty wanted the honest truth on how people looked at her. Her peers responded to this video, not with love and compassion for a teenage girl who struggles with self-esteem, but with mockery and judgment. On the same day as Patty posted the video, the bullies posted on her wall stating how the video was “rad and totally epic”. The very next day, May 7th at 4:14pm, Ms. Desolatia posted on her Facebook, “sigh… I swear today was the worst day that I have ever had before; I just wanted to kill myself.
Sarah Pageau Religion December 11, 2011 Per.1 8B I walked into Las Vegas Day School’s 3C classroom excited and nervous for the first day of school. My teacher was Mrs. Negrin.

It should be a matter of great concern that almost two and a half million children have a parent in prison.

Some of us use a computer to help share our feelings but have no real connections to just like Sally. (Dick, 2005). Sally’s relationship with her computer is how she expresses herself since she is a shy person.
