Montgomery’s story is told in the first person by our young heroin, Avery. She is disfigured, but years of surgery have minimized the disfigurement. Eleven years she has been the target of a vicious bully and Avery hates the thought of going to school. Who could blame her? Avery’s best friend is Dylan, he too is bullied, and it is an attack on him that moves Avery to take action. She is aided in her quest for justice by a class mate that she isn’t sure she can trust.
“Scarred” delves into the mental anguish of those on the receiving end of bullying. Uniquely done is the tormented life and damaged psyche of the bully.
This book was gifted to me for an honest review. I have to give “Scarred” a solid four star rating and recommend it highly as a book that should be on every middle school and older readers list of must read books. Parents and teachers could also benefit from a look into the mental anguish of these youngsters. Well done Elizabeth.

Scarred was a quick read that shows what teenagers think and feel when they encounter bullying. It reminds us that bullying is inevitable and we each have to find out own way to deal with it. Just as being bullied has multiple facets, Scarred shows us that bullies may have something going on in their lives that has encouraged their behavior. It's important to stay strong and take the higher road, especially when karma comes knocking because as the saying goes: What goes around, comes around.
Avery has been bullied most of her life. She doesn't trust anyone. Since Harper Clarke made it her mission to destroy Avery, life was mostly miserable. She doesn't trust anyone. When Harper's ex-boyfriend, Blake, begins talking to her, she is positive there's a catch. Could a member of the popular crowd possibly want to be her friend? Will Harper find a way to mess this up too?
Avery was born with a cleft palate, and though she's reconstructive surgeries to fix it, the evidence of her former condition still remain. And for this reason, she's been the target of horribly bullying from Harper Clarke ever since elementary school. The only friend Avery has is Dylan, who is tormented just as badly for being gay.
So when the handsome Blake (Harper's ex-BF) steps forward offering to be Avery's white knight and put an end to Harper's reign of terror, she is at first skeptical. Who wouldn't be?
This was a very quick read, but with a powerful message, that being: most bullies become bullies for reasons they prefer not to talk about, to cover their own pain or inner demons. I'm never sure just how stories about bullying are going to end - happily or tragically - but I was pleasantly surprised by how this ended. Avery is a shining example of what it takes to deal with bullying once and for all.

I have a soft spot for books about bullying because they're much more complex than they seem on the surface - if they're done well. A bully isn't a bully just because they're mean. Read morePublished 5 months ago by MacQueen
