For those of us who come into the world different, we see it for what it really is.
Avery Chamberlin is special, unique. Beautiful words to gloss over the fact that she is different. She has never felt like she fit in. Why should she?
She was reminded on a daily basis that she was not like her peers.
Flawed. Damaged. A freak.
Avery will have to come out of her shell to prove that even the bullies have their own insecurities.

***Katie, #KtLBLy Review***
 Avery is just like every other high school girl except when Avery was born, she had a cleft lip and got surgery to correct it that unfortunately left her with some scarring. She is constantly picked on and bullied by fellow classmate and beauty queen Harper but that just has made her develop a thick skin. Her best friend Dylan helps her out and sticks up for her every time, even though he gets bullied too for being gay. One day an old friend named Blake asks to hang out with her and get coffee. At first she is unsure because Blake and Harper used to date and she thinks it’s a joke. She reluctantly agrees and Blake tells her that he misses being friends with her and wants them to hang out again which doesn’t please Harper.
This is a short story which deals with a really big issue right with bullying and I thought that it did a good job of portraying someone being bullied really well. I got through this very quickly and I hope that a lot of younger kids read it because bullying is always a problem no matter what age you are. Sometimes kids only think that it’s only in school but many people are bullied by someone in their workforce or on social media too. I only wish that it explained just a little bit more of Blake and Avery’s friendship from when they were younger because it seemed to be glossed over but overall it was enjoyable.
