This book is an astonishing memoir of Paige who was bullied because she was HIV positive. Growing you she had HIV but she didn't tell anyone until one day when she told her friend of the illness she had and that was the day when she started getting bullied form students at her school. From that day forward her life was a battlefield; never knowing where or when an insufferable message, taunt, or text would a come from. finally, one night she divided to end all the pain when she saw an bottle of pills. the suicide attempts was unsuccessful, Paige then turned too this tragedy into a triumph when she realized that she would turn her experience to bring inspiration and hope for others who have the same struggles she had; bullying.
