To This Day: For the Bullied and Beautiful: 05/13/15
To This Day: For the Bullied and Beautiful by Shane Koyczan is a poem, done originally as an online video, to anyone who has ever been bullied. The video went viral, as they say, and was enough of a success to prompt a book, illustrated by a number of artists. The book was nominated for a 2014-2015 CYBILs in the graphic novel category.
For anyone who needs a boost of self esteem, or to give someone a hug in the form of a book, To This Day is a good choice. It's the right balance between uplifting and realistic.
