Nashville teen writes book to combat bullying

- Robyn Gordon, 13, is finding a way to battle bullying through books.

The Nashville teen wrote a book titled "Stop Bullying" and is going around Tennessee reading it to kids.

The plot of "Stop Bullying" is loosely based around Gordon's own experiences in first grade, and its written to remind kids to be themselves.

In the book, a boy named Robby is being bullied by a kid named Steve. Robby eventually stands up for himself and tells his teacher what is happening.

"Be a buddy, not a bully," one page says.

Gordon decided to make everyone in the book purple so that she wouldn't "single anyone out."

"You're not the only one ... it's OK to stand up and let someone know that you're dealing with something," Gordon said. "And if you can't go to a parent, go to a friend, maybe go to an older brother and sister. But you can always go to somebody."

Gordon is currently an eighth-grade student and plans to continue to write and read her book to inspire other kids.
