Review: Gifted, Bullied, Resilient: A Brief Guide for Smart Families I love Pamela Price’s new book,

*Gifted, Bullied, Resilient: A Brief Guide for Smart Families.*It is simple, clear, precise, strong, and comforting. I read the book on the plane yesterday and found that I fell into a well of answers to questions that I didn’t know that I had been wanting to ask forever. What is bullying? How was I bullied?
