More About the Author

Patty Blount writes instruction guides by day and novels by night. On a dare by her oldest son, she wrote her first novel in an ice rink. Though never published, Penalty Killer was the subject of so many seventh grade book reports, the English teacher requested a copy and later returned it, covered in red ink. Patty is always looking for great story ideas. Her debut novel, Send, was conceived after her boss suggested she learn about social networks. Patty lives on Long Island with her family, a fish, and lots of books.

***This review is filled with spoilers of the very worst type, so if you've made it this far, this is your final warning. I even sort of spoil another popular book. I just can't talk about this book without talking about everything that happened.***

I went into this book with trepidation. I was Liam. I was bullied throughout my entire public school career, so badly that, one day, when I was 15, I took one of my father's pocket knives and attempted to carve a vein out of my left arm. It's a good thing I didn't know that a cross cut is far less effective than a cut straight up the arm, or I wouldn't be writing this. But that was 31 years ago, and now I have a scar that's actually my badge of bravery, because I got out of high school alive and actually made a life for myself. I am also SO thankful that I went to school prior to the invention of the net, because then it would probably have been even worse, and the fact that you can google "how to successfully commit suicide" would not have been lost to a kid that excelled in research.

Instead, this book made me angry. Very angry.

I was angry at Julie, for obvious reasons, for a good part of the book. Of course I knew exactly who she was from the moment I met her (If you've read Ten Tiny Breaths you'll know what I mean). I couldn't be sure if she was plotting revenge or something else. So even though I felt for her, I never actually felt comfortable with her. I was angry at Pops. I'm sorry, but the way he turned his back on Ken was just wrong. No matter how angry he was over Ken's "running", the kid needed someone to love him, not a wall of silence. I was angry at the parents, because they just couldn't accept the level of guilt Ken was experiencing. It was almost as if they wanted to say to him "snap out of it".

Format: Paperback
'Send' is a thought-provoking young adult contemporary novel that centers around bullying and the effects it has on all those involved. Interestingly, this novel is set from the point of view of the bully, not the victim. It follows Dan, whose bullying five years ago cost a young boy his life, as well as ruined his own. Dan and his family have been moving from town to town for years, trying to escape his past and start fresh. Dan finally feels like things are looking up when he meets Julie and makes his first friends. But there is more than meets the eye to Julie - almost like she's hiding something. And Dan's new friend Brandon is being bullied to the point where someone's going to be seriously hurt.

I found this novel to be a very interesting read, as it goes into the depths of bullying and what harm it causes. It takes into account the way bullying has adapted to the world of technology - where bullying is capable not only in person but online as well. As I mentioned earlier, the story is told from Dan's (the bully) point of view, which is definitely original. I thought it was an honest look inside the heart of someone full of regret, shame, and despair as well as seeing how his actions constantly effect him and those around him. The other characters in the book all fit into the scheme of bullying somehow as well, which shows the immense scope that bullying plays in real life. The author deals with some very serious problems and topics in this novel, and does so in a way that truly makes the reader think. This is a great novel for readers of all ages and one that will leave you thinking long after you finish reading it.

Disclosure: I received a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

This is one unforgettable book. SEND covers it all - bullying, relationships between parents, friends and more than just friends, suicide and more. It was an emotional roller coaster...

Patty Blount definitely did her research - she knew exactly how to bring the situation and all of the characters to life. I was a bit hesitant to accept this book for review. Just from the summary, I felt that I had no business reading a book from a bully's point-of-view. I was determined to read it and not like it, and not like Dan.

I was so wrong.

Once I found out how old Kenny was when he clicked "send", what his sentence was, what happened to him in juvie, what happened when he got out of juvie and so on, my heart really ached for the boy. Yes, he was a bully. But he was the type of bully where a lot of people, including his parents, probably saw him as just 'having a little fun with the boys'. Being a boy at 12/13 nowadays is really tough. Some boys stay boys while others hit puberty and are already shaving. And until that growth spurt, a lot of parents still see their pre-teen boys as their little babies and treat them as their typical little boys that should be wearing 'under-roos' and playing sports, rather than listen to them and find out what it is that they are really interested in.
This book also hit pretty close to home. The setting takes place on Long Island, where I live, and this was the first time that I was reading something that is 5 minutes from where I live. I have driven down these roads and towns on a weekly basis. I have passed by these schools and stores. It was really eerie to read and I had to remind myself, over and over again, that this was not a true story.

SEND has opened my eyes even further when it comes to bullying.
