Author Amanda Levy believes strongly in the power of food to bridge cultures and bring people together. And in her gripping new memoir, Stop Bullies With 21 Meals from 7 Continents, she examines this notion, hoping to use the communal strength of food to end all forms of bullying around the globe, while simultaneously recounting the remarkable and shocking details of her tumultuous life.

Despite a difficult upbringing, Levy graduated from City University of New York with a BA in Economics and Mathematics and practiced civil law for ten years in 40 United States District Courts before diverting to criminal law in 2013. The struggles that Levy has faced throughout her life paint a vivid picture of inner strength, determination and the power of the human spirit.

Every day, one in four students is bullied. According to an American Justice Department survey, 160,000 students miss school each day out of fear of being bullied, and one in ten teens drop out of school completely due to repeated bullying. Against the backdrop of this increasingly-important issue, author Thomas Russell’s Finding Your True North: A Bullied Teen’s Journey of Hope depicts the life of an oppressed teen who learns life-changing, soul-searching lessons from the residents of an unfamilar town.

Formerly a freelance writer and the editor of RV Trade Digest, Russell is now a mentor for Five Star Life, an organization that teaches values to middle school children. Inspired by the issues these children were encountering on a daily basis and seeking to make a difference in the lives of bullied children around the world, Russell wrote his book over the course of four months and had it published in August of 2014.
