What happens online doesn't always stay online . . .

Lara just got told off on Facebook.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for Backlash" This is a powerful and credible story that illustrates the perils of immature decisions and explores the wide-reaching ripple effect of destructive actions thought by the perpetrators as 'fun.'" -Booklist" Littman pens a raw, frighteningly realistic, and absorbing look at cyberbullying and the damaging effects of airing private trauma in a public forum." -Publishers Weekly" This novel thoughtfully balances the four alternating perspectives, giving an element of humanity even to the perpetrators of severe bullying while maintaining a strong moral judgment." -School Library Journal
