Danielle felt it was important to write this book in order to let children who are bullied know how to handle the situation and help them from getting hurt. She originally wrote the book as part of a school assignment, but decided to take it a few steps further when she realized the importance of letting others know about the dangers of bullying and trying prevent bullying in our societies. Danielle thinks it is important to make new friends, especially trying to reach out to those people who we are not as close to in our lives.
