My Drama Can Be Bought

Dear Journal: I just had to tell someone and you're the only one... Take a look at this, my author Ey Wade has made it possible to buy my story directly from her!! I'm so excited because as an author/entrepreneur, it means she will get 90% of the profit. Of course, if you prefer you could also buy from the traditional places.

Debney Talks to Cinda about bullying - The Snake Pit by Donna Dillon #bullying

As usual, I was sitting here thinking about my life, feeling sorry for myself when I remembered this girl. I don't really know her, but after hearing about the ridicule and bulling she encountered at school, I searched her out. I think I know exactly how she felt. So many of my days were spent being threatened and harassed, it made me want to comfort her.  She was younger than I am and I had hope of giving her advice on how to deal with the bullies at school anyway we did have a little visit. Her name was Cinda and she is the main character from the novel, The Snake Pit by Donna L. Dillon. 
My review
Book Blurb.
Being the new kid at Hargrove Jr. High is never easy, but, for Cinda, it's a nightmare. Born with a facial deformity that leaves her face scarred and disfigured, Cinda endures the taunts and name-calling without complaint. That is, until one student takes bullying too far. Way too far. Cinda's life becomes a nightmare when she finds herself in The Snake Pit.

Of course, being as pregnant as I am I didn't want to do much driving so I invited Cinda to the house. She was a little nervous, but after an hour of hanging out watching movies and eating LOTS of junk, I could see she was relaxed enough to talk. Take a moment to get to know about her.

Cinda tell me, I have a lot of issues with some of the things Ey has written from me to experience, what do you like about your situation in your book?  

 I learned I do have real friends, who don’t care if I’m not “perfect”   

What do you dislike?  
The poor choices made, both by myself, and the people around me.  

If you had a chance to rewrite your ‘story’, what would you change?
   I would change the outcome. My choice did not solve anything.  

Yeah, I read the story. It was mind bending and no, I don't think your choice made much difference. If you had a choice what would you keep?  
My real friends. 
Do you have a family? If so, how is your family life? 
I have a wonderful family. My mom, dad, and sisters have always been very supportive. I wish I would’ve thought more about how my decisions would affect them. 

 What do you wish people will learn/ enjoy about your story? 
That words hurt. One thoughtlessly thrown insult can do irreparable harm. 

Too true. I wish I had kept some of my words to myself. What do you really think about your author, Donna Dillon?  

She knows more about bullying than any one person should ever have to.  

 That's actually kind of sad. That would mean she would have had to live through some kind of bullying. My author went through her own, too.  I hate bullying and believe no one should have to endure it. I have no idea how to stop the trend except to form a no tolerance rule and hold schools accountable for every incident that goes unpunished. 

I'm sorry, the questioning became a little overwhelming for Cinda and she had to leave. I hope you get the book, read and give to your children. Because of Cinda's case, I think parents have to be more diligent in observing their children. Whether they are the bullies or the victims. Nothing good comes from bullying.
I want to say thank you to Cinda, I think I learned more from her than she did from me, and thanks to Donna for a well written and much needed story.

Two of my favorite characters chatting. Brilliant!

Robin said...

Beautiful interview. I too was bullied as a kid and feel this book can be a huge help for those that are bullied. I love this.

Ey Wade said...

I'm so sorry to hear that, Robin. Really can't believe I'm just seeing this comment. Children can be brutal because they are honest with their perceived observations even when being cruel.

a review from ARC

In the wake of adversity Debney is put through the wringer, something that at her age should never happen.

But in this case it did and author Ey Wade did an excellent job with the plot and the emotional aspect.

I mentioned a dysfunctional family earlier, but the nice thing about this story is you don't realize the severity until the story unfolds. From every corner of her life Debney is challenged, and to see how she handles it...well you need to pick up this novel and if you know a teenager, place one in their hands for required reading.

Ms. Wade rolls out this story beautifully with impeccable timing. I was so engrossed and totally shocked at Debney's mother...the real reason I believe this book is called D.N.A.
A highly recommended read!
