Dear Librarians,

I was inspired to write BACKLASH after reading news stories about different cyberbullying incidents and the online vigilantism that occurred in the name of making the bullies "pay." As bullying continues to play out more often in the virtual world, it's important to remember there are human beings experiencing real life pain, often with tragic consequences. It is my hope that this story might start some thoughtful conversations around how we can rethink attitudes in our schools, our homes, and our communities.
