Unbullied by Alexa and Angel Dumas is a story about a fourteen-year-old’s internal struggle with the loss of her father, Rahul, living in a disconnected family, and moving to the city of Coquitlam due to her mother’s new job, which seemed like a foreign society in comparison to the life Kylee left behind in London. When she started her new school, the only things that settled her anxiety were the words of her mother and pleasant thoughts of Noah, her best friend from London. As school commences, Kylee runs into the clutches of three bullies who sense her vulnerability. Surprisingly, a classmate unexpectedly comes to her rescue. From there, Ethan and Kylee develop a friendship. To her surprise, the bullying didn’t cease but carried on for weeks into months.

It is a well-written story, immersed in descriptive and real dialogue. The authors' usage of internal dialogue allows you to get inside the head of the main character, Kylee. I loved the way the authors played the relationship between Kylee and her mother. You could see the seesaw of emotions going back and forth — a stubborn teenager and a loving, supportive parent. Many times people go through various types of bullying. In this story, Alexa and Angel Dumas demonstrate one of the most common forms of bullying in society, and they subliminally offer ways to escape the grasp of bullies.

5***** A Well Written Story By A Young, Talented Author

Unbullied was well written by a young teen who certainly has done an excellent job in her first published story.The young girl's plight had me in tears and fearing for her sanity as well as her life. As a mother who has dealt with bullies against my child, this was an extremely uncomfortable subject to read but I believe this story, though written as fiction, can be used instrumentally in helping other young girls to stand up for themselves and others who are been bullied. I recommend this book to any young person who is going through this or any parent watching their child experience the situation. I look forward to seeing more from this young, talented author.

5 ***** ‘Unbullied’ is a book every preteen and parent should read 1 April 2016

‘Unbullied’ by Alexa and Angel Dumas is an excellent fictionalized account of how bullying begins, escalates, can become uncontrollable, and can be eliminated. It is an eye-opening story of young-adult harassment and victimization. Stemming from a sense of isolation or lack of community, the victim often lacks the inner strength to defend him- or herself with potentially devastating consequences. By raising awareness of this mental and physical abuse, Alexa and Angel Dumas have taken the first step in putting an end to this often disregarded form of violence. ‘Unbullied’ is a book every preteen and parent should read.

Bullying is a serious social issue. This book is worth reading, especially if you're in school or you have children in school.
