Thanks to the It Gets Better campaign, we’ve heard from numerous actors, musicians, and other celebrities who’ve spoken out against bullying (specifically in the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender, or LGBT, teen community).

Now, we get to hear from young adult authors.

Between the covers of Dear Bully: 70 Authors Tells Their Stories, young adult authors like R.L. Stine, Ellen Hopkins, Carolyn Mackler, Mo Williems, and Eric Luper share essays, comics, and free verse describing their past relationships with bullying –

– as victims, bullies, and bystanders.

The book won’t hit shelves until September 6, 2011, but that’s still plenty of time to get it to your favorite teen before the school year flies into full swing.

Also, a portion of the book’s proceeds will go to STOMP Out Bullying, a national anti-bullying and cyber bullying program for kids and teens and a partner of The Jed Foundation and MTV’s Love Is Louder campaign.

For more information about Dear Bully, visit the book’s official Facebook page and website, www.dearbully.com, where you’ll find videos of celebs like Ben Folds, Justin Timberlake, and the cast of Glee speaking out about bullying and cyber bullying.
