Author Hopes to Stem Tide of Bullying with Launch of New Book

Washington author, Sasha Dreams, is hoping to stem the tide of bullying with her new book, It Takes a Fool: a Tough Lesson Learned on Bullying
 It Takes A Fool is a short "creative memoir" about a 10 year old girl, named Sasha. Sasha is the darling of her fifth grade class and her best friend always has her back…just like a sister. But simmering beneath the beautiful life are the dark secrets her parents harbor, secrets that slowly wind their way around the heart of the family, choking the life from Sasha. Helpless, afraid and alone, she fights the only way she can but her desperate quest for survival could lead to her own destruction.

Bullying has long been an issue in the school environment. In fact, according to the National School Safety Center, approximately 2.1 million bullies are harboured in the American school system, with just about 2.7 million victims. Data also indicated that 15 percent of school absenteeism is related to the fear of being bullied at school.

Unfortunately, Sasha was the perpetrator in this instance. However, she has learned some valuable lessons which she wants to impart with bullies as well as those on the receiving end. She said, "It wasn't an easy decision but I am ready to share my experiences as a bully. It is my prayer that by sharing my story others will choose to make better choices."   

It Takes a Fool was launched last December 12, 2014 and now available in both eBook and paperback format on at: for $4.95 and $7.95 respectively.
