Publisher's Summary

If you've ever been there, you've never forgotten. The feeling is as haunting and familiar as the smell of a junior-high-school locker room. It's the feeling of being undersized or oversized...or klutzy or less than beautiful. Of being a nerd...or a geek or just, somehow, different. It's knowing you are vulnerable - and someone is ready and willing to take full advantage of your weakness by making your life miserable. It's the fraternity you never wanted to join - the fellowship of the wounded spirit. In Frank Peretti's first nonfiction work, he examines the pain from his past and helps us uncover the scars in our own lives. Drawing from tragic news stories like Columbine, he illustrates how ridicule and rejection can push people beyond the brink. Then, with poignant insight, he shows us the way to heal the wounded spirit that lies within us all.

Excellent Lessons for us all

This isn't a book per se. It is a tape of a speech he gave at a conference. He talks first about his life growing up. His life parallels what is going on today. The subject is so applicable to today's situation, especially in schools, where kids torment other kids. But the bigger lesson is that for all of us, words can hurt! I would recommend this to anyone, and if you can get your kids to listen, even better.
