“My parents raised me well. They raised me to know better and to have some intuition, and it all went out the window just because I was so lonely, and I was in so much pain. All I could think about is like, ‘Wow, I have somebody that wants to be my friend.’
The incident was passed around the school as gossip and eventually led to bullying which was so severe PVZ contemplated suicide. To understand the full story, and to purchase your copy of the book click here.
