“You'll love it if...you're looking for a summer read that's moving and inspirational.Cornered will give you the courage to face-off the bullies at your own school, and help victims get help.”
“The authors in Cornered use their stories to take us inside the minds and skins of those who are being bullied, and the bullies themselves, to show readers just how wrong thinking teen-aged harassment is “not that bad” can be… an intensely personal and unsettling look at the problem, and will hopefully move them to do more than just say, “It Gets Better,” and join in the battle against it.”
“Cornered has something for every kind of kid—male and female; LGBT and straight; sportsy, artsy, and bookish. … Not for the faint of heart, every story in this excellent collection is worth its weight in gold.”
"Reading "Cornered" could really open your eyes to the world around you. It may make you realize some things that may change you or how you feel about others. "
School Library Journal
“…a solid recommendation to teens and a definite gateway title to promoting the short-story genre.”
