Jordan Crowlabout this book: The book is about a boy named Ed that illustrates and writes in his journals. Each story is a character word that effects him or his friends.
This book is about his best friend Jade getting Bullied at school and Ed and Corey trying to help. Jade is looking for the best way to handle the Bully and goes through three alternative paths. With each path different Jade needs to find the best way to defeat the Bully. We need to help Jade choose the right path and keep her character strong.
• Why write this book?
With more and more Bullying cases being reported in the schools today I wanted to do something that gives inspiration for the victim. Inspire them to do the right thing and let kids know that there is a way out. I also want them to know the right way to handle a Bully. However, they should also know there is a wrong way as well. I wanted to make sure they know both.
A Bullies problems are bigger then yours and we should never think handling a Bully by ourselves is the right path to take.
• Who are the primary readers of your book?
I find that children in the grades 1-5 are the best fit for Ed's Journal. As they get older they start to settle in their ways of becoming an adult. The younger group enjoy the stories a lot more and love the main characters. With this being my tenth book I wanted it to be something that would do more of an impact and make every reader young and old to think of what Bullying actually does to kids.
• What was the hardest part of writing your book?
It took me a while to get the right story and build a character up in the earlier books. I did a lot of thinking of what or even who is the worst kind of Bully. In the book it gives a good look at the Bully and what the objective is for the Bully. As well as show how the Bully might benefit from it.
Hopefully the three alternative paths will make a child think of what is wrong and what is right. There is only one right answer and each kid going through being Bullied should take the step and get help.
Really, I believe the hardest part of writing this book is to make a impact on someone reading it. Not only to the victim but to the Bully as well.
• What do you want to say to your readers?
Being Bullied is hard and with out taking the steps to stop Bullying it will happen over and over. As a person we have our character and when someone tries to take it away we should defend and Keep our Character Strong. Nobody should change your character but you and a strong character is a step into a stronger life.
