Fat Kid Rules the World by K.L. GoingLibrarians note: An alternate cover edition can be found here
Troy Billings is seventeen, 296 pounds, friendless, utterly miserable, and about to step off a New York subway platform in front of an oncoming train. Until he meets Curt MacCrae, an emaciated, semi-homeless, high school dropout guitar genius, the stuff of which Lower East Side punk rock legends are made. Never mind that Troys dad thinks Curts a drug addict and Troys brother thinks Troys the biggest (literally) loser in Manhattan. Soon, Curt has recruited Troy as his new drummer, even though Troy cant play the drums. Together, Curt and Troy will change the world of punk, and Troys own life, forever.
Laugh at the Fat Kid
I want to preface this post about my experience with childhood obesity by first saying two things. If you are a friend or family member of mine, proceed with caution and please keep in mind how much I love you while reading this post.

Perhaps Parents Should Be Crying Over (Low-Fat) Milk, Because Whole Is Better for Kids
This was simply not true. Most bullies had their own pride and constituencies to satisfy and they wouldn't have picked on you in the first place if they weren't sure they could beat you up. But it was a necessary lie that parents and older siblings had to tell if we were ever to lose our fears. The important lesson was not about beating the bully, but about finding out that the beating he gave you was bearable, that he couldn't kill you. Simply by standing up to him and surviving, you won a small victory that would give you the courage to keep challenging, to keep standing up, until he left you alone. I've been having these thoughts since revisiting my old junior high school, Stephen A.

The videos that he was in were all recorded and originally uploaded in He is the brother of Austin Giglio, and appears to be the older of the two. He appears to live in Cortlandt Manor, New York. Judging by his surname, he also appears to be of at least partial Italian ancestry, at least on his fathers side. This appears to be his Facebook profile: .
Share Your Story. I would like to share my story of how I was bullied and teased for three years in middle school. Bullying is a major problem across the world especially in public schools. I told on the kids and even my parents reported it to the school board and still nothing improved. Bullying and cruel methods ruin lives and it needs to be stopped, this is not normal, it must be stopped once and for all to have a peaceful world for all. My story starts all the way back to 3rd grade when I met a kid named A and we hit it off and became the best of friends.
To make this upset more impressive, the American of Mexican heritage did it by climbing off the canvas to put Anthony Joshua down four times. The British Anthony will just want to look away. Joshua finished on his feet as the referee looked into his glazed eyes during the seventh…. Get The International Pack for free for your first 30 days for unlimited Smartphone and Tablet access.
