When thirteen-year-old Celeste began to shine as a competitive swimmer, her jealous teammates tormented her so relentlessly she began to lose her sense of self worth and love of her sport. In the course of an ordeal that was to last from junior high to her senior year in high school, she became the victim of brutal verbal abuse, theft and even a threat to her life. Coaches and school administrators displayed a shocking indifference and outright hostility when Celeste and her mother turned to them for help, so mother and daughter had to fight the battle against bullying alone---and they won. This is their inspiring story, written to give hope and lessons-learned to other parents and children in this all-too-common situation. Also included is a valuable summary of important research findings about the threats of bullying.
