Self Defense

16 pages12 minutes


Annie Reed, award-winning author of PRETTY LITTLE HORSES, returns with a powerful story of a mother and son who both must learn how to stand up to the bullies in their lives.

When Miriam's son tries to defend himself against schoolyard bullies, he's victimized a second time by a school system that punishes the victim as well as the bully.

Miriam must overcome the trauma of her own past in order to help her son learn to be strong. For bullies exist in every walk of life, and she's tired of being a victim.

"The appearance of a new Annie Reed story is a treat. Try one and you'll be hooked." —Dave Hendrickson, author of CRACKING THE ICE
