I Can Find My Might Paperback – September 1, 2014
I just finished reading Gabriella’s book, I Can Find My Might. It is a must read for anyone who works with children. Gabriella gets to the heart of how a child really feels when they are bullied and made to think they don’t fit in anywhere. It then goes a step further to show us how bullies tend to get caught up in circumstances beyond their control. As an educator for thirty-eight years it has helped me to know that I need to help each child find their “Might.” This book needs to be placed in school libraries around the world.

WOW! Loved it! Read it all on my cell phone. I can tell you how much I hate that. I like to turn pages, but I couldn’t stop reading it…
– Teresa Kellogg, a Parent, California
Be prepared for an emotional first-person journey, a fascinating read with an endearing experience shared what no parent wants to imagine could ever happen to their child. I Can Find My Might is influential in increasing awareness in students and also to the teachers and staff all over the world about all forms of bullying. This will help reduce and prevent emotional pain through understanding the challenges of a child and help us understand that people are more alike than they are different. A very powerful and emotional message, which will make a definite impact. To Gabriella I firmly believe that what you are doing is making a difference and you are saving lives.

As a high school teacher, after reading I Can Find My Might, I realize that the students I encounter daily suffer a similar plight as the children in the book. Gabriella is able to connect a very sensitive and controversial issue (bullying) to students of all ages. Expressing not only those situations of the individuals who have touched her life, but her own experiences, including the most tragic step of all. She has the knowledge and, unfortunately, the experience that allows her to speak to all children, as well as adults who still have issues due to childhood bullying. As you read her words or have the pleasure to hear her speak, you get the feeling that this is not a job but a lifetime passion for her. As a teacher, I need to pick up the ball of Human Kindness TM and be there for the students on my campus. This book should be a mandatory read for all children and educators in school.

The book is about Gabriella’s very sad story and other kids that went through bad stuff and even the bully’s side of things and even fear which I never thought a bully has, too. And that we are the same even if we may have differences.
It showed me how others suffered too just like me and also how they found there might.
It was very very sad and made be feel a lot of different feelings but the book showed me that I can find my might just like the other kids in the book.
I am so happy that little Gabriella grew up and found her might and is helping many kids find their might, too.
I looked in my school library and never found one book on bullying. Why is that ???????? I think books like this should be in schools because every school has problems like this and it hurts.
