The Snake Pit: Jr. High Can Be Torture

Cinda is a smart girl. But, Cinda doesn’t look like other twelve-year-old girls. A facial defect, and the surgery to correct it has left her face scarred and disfigured. When she walks into Hargrove Junior High for the first time, Cinda knows that the other kids won’t see how smart she is, or what a good friend she could be. The other kids will see her as a monster, and her life will be torture.

The school cafeteria, or The Snake Pit, as the kids call it, is the prime location for bullying. One pretty girl in particular takes an instant dislike to Cinda, and day after day she is pushed, tripped, and laughed at. Not all the other kids bully her, but they all see what’s happening, and only one tries to help.

Charlene Carsten or Charlie as she is called, is Cinda’s only friend. She tries to stop the bullying, but the other kids won’t listen. She tries to tell the Principal, but he only sees what he wants to. She tries to tell the teachers, but they all say the same thing: “Kids will be kids.”

When Cinda falls victim of a vicious prank at a school dance, it sets off a series of events that will change all of their lives forever. As Charlie struggles to help her friend, Cinda makes a desperate decision to end the bullying, once and for all.
