‘Crossing the Line’ by Alan Eisenberg

Crossing the Line is on the subject of the breaking point that a bullying victim reaches where it is a thin line as to whether they commit bullycide or go into a school and shoot people. The story revolves around two high school sophomores, Jessica (Jessie) Steiner and Brian Graymond. Jessie is the victim of female bullying since elementary school. She is psychologically damaged, depressed and a cutter. She was institutionalized all summer and at the end of the year before. Brian meets Jessie in the institution as he was caught selling marijuana at school, due to believing by doing so would end the bullying. The story is told from the perspective of four people. Jessie is working to overcome a suicide attempt as she comes back to school and is bullied over her actions. The second character we learn about is Sandi, who was Jessie’s friend, but has been now bullying her. She schemes with her other friend to make Jessie believe a boy online likes her, but it is actually Sandi pretending to be the boy. The final character is someone known as Anarchy, who is a teen at the school that is bullied and planning a revenge killing to take place at the school. All the stories culminate at the end in tragic, but real to life results of how bullying can damage people and lead to violence.
