Synopsis: Shane s new novel in verse, Stickboy, is narrated by a boy who, after enduring years of bullying from his classmates, finally snaps and becomes a bully himself. The title is a reference to both the old sticks and stones saying, and the narrator s feeling of being made of sticks of dynamite waiting to explode. This tale, based on Shane s childhood experiences with bullying, is as beautiful as it is haunting. And it reminds us that although we can assume any role bully, victim, or passive observer ultimately, we must each choose where we stand...

With cyber-bullying on the rise, this is truly a timely and important book for all ages and backgrounds: students, parents, teachers, and more. It is sure to ignite lively debate and discussion about bullying in our society and what we can do about it.

About the Author: You only have to hear spoken word virtuoso Shane Koyczan once to be hooked humane, furious, sexy, political, tragic, and so funny you ll be laughing through your tears. Koyczan's thrillingly rich, fast and cool performances have brought audiences to their feet in New York, London, Edinburgh, Sydney, Auckland, and Los Angeles.

Winner of the US Slam Poetry Championship, the Canadian Spoken Word Olympics, and the CBC National Poetry Face Off, Shane has been featured on BRAVO television, and NPR, BBC, CBC, and ABC (Australia) radio.

His first published collection, Visiting Hours, was the only work of poetry selected by both the Guardian and the Globe and Mail for their Best Books of the Year lists.

With Stickboy, Shane has produced a novel in verse so explosive, so heart-wrenching, that it will stick with you long after you put it down.
