What other readers have to say.
"Chapter 17 particularly relevant! Dramatic use of POV. Engaging narrative. Compelling prose. Highly recommend. Looking forward to author’s next book."
"All through the story, the perusers can feel the feelings of the characters. The creator sends an amazing message about tormenting and motivates you to join the mission to end it."
Many Ways Up is a beautifully designed and easy to use workbook that takes a deeper look into the understanding, the impacts and the aftereffects of bullying. The many diverse and engaging activities takes one out of their comfort zone to analyze and work through this pressing issue plaguing our society today. I found the quotes presented throughout to be very engaging, pertinent and connected to the material. I strongly recommend this bullying and mental health workbook as an accompaniment to "The Only Way Out" to help empower yourself and others to address bullying in all its forms and make a difference.
This workbook is accessible, inclusive and easy to get through. I can see it being a really great classroom resource. I liked how it was tied to the novel, The Only Way Out, but not written in a way that makes it absolutely necessary to have read the book either. It's educational and insightful. It's not attempting to solve these big problems of bullying and mental health, but rather open the doors to important conversations and encouraging readers to talk honestly and freely. I also really liked the "actionable tasks" sections that give readers simple things they can do to start making progress in the right direction in their own lives.

by Katie Kuperman
I knew I wanted to write a book. “About what?” was the question. Until I came across Amanda Todd’s video on the news many years ago. Her story, which she labeled as one of struggle, bullying, suicide and self-harm, is what compelled me to put pen to paper in my creation of what has become a novel with a message.
After launching and promoting The Only Way Out in 2021 and 2022, there were numerous teachers and educators who showed interest. This led me on the path of my second book, Many Ways Up. Where The Only Way Out evokes emotion and heightens readers’ awareness of bullying, mental health and the importance of talking openly, Many Ways Up teaches, educates, provides actionable tasks for everyday life and invites readers to set their own priorities and look inside themselves.

A portion of all book proceeds are donated.
Part of the proceeds from every sale of The Only Way Out go to the Amanda Todd Legacy Society.
Founded by Carol Todd, this nonprofit organization helps those in need in a direct and impactful way.
From providing private counseling to bullied youth who suffer from anxiety and damaged self-esteem, right through to funding for family food insecurities and youth mental health programs, the Amanda Todd Legacy Society is committed to “the dream of helping kids” (words of Amanda Todd, before she left our world in 2012).
Many Ways Up donates part of its proceeds to the well-known Canadian organization, BullyingCanada.
In 2006, the organization was founded by two young people who were terribly bullied in high school, and who set out to make a difference in the lives of other kids who were suffering. This registered charity offers a 24/7/365 Lifeline Bullied Kids Support Network via telephone, email and text. It also provides anti-bullying print collateral and workshops to communities and schools – more than 4,320 presentations to date.
