“I Don’t Want to Be Like You” is Maryanne Christiano-Mistretta’s true story about growing up in the 1970s and having to deal with bullying‑‑both physical and verbal‑‑on a regular basis. She was humiliated and harassed from grade school to high school. Empowered by music, she got the nerve to start fighting back (while both teachers, and parents of bullies, turned a blind eye to what was going on.)
Once she graduated high school, she made all her ambitions come true. She became an award-winning journalist and married the guy of her dreams. Then she started her own home-based business ghost writing. She also had three of her own books published. She is still a music fan!
This book is bold and honest. It’s also positive, written with no resentment and only growth.
