ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the comprehensive anti-bullying program through the use of young adult literature as the centerpiece to combat bullying in middle schools in the U.S. If the literature deals with the terrible consequences of bullying, it could help the victim and the bully. The victim may derive coping strategies from reading about another in a similar situation while the bully might identify with a fictional victim that would lead to empathy and the possibility for change. Moreover, the program offers an effective means to undercut the power and presence of bullies at school.
