Why I wrote the workbook

After launching and promoting The Only Way Out, I received tremendous interest from teachers and educators. I couldn’t help but think that if my fiction novel had the potential to be a teaching tool for students, how much more impactful could it be with a companion workbook?

Many Ways Up takes the emotions, increased awareness and key messaging from my novel and sets these elements into real-life action. I invite my readers to talk and share. To open their doors to fresh perspectives, new ideas and different possible solutions or steps forward. To gain insight into themselves and their lives. To learn and create positive change every day.

Target audience

Along with my novel, The Only Way Out, this workbook was developed with youth and young adults in mind, aged 11 to 18.

Many Ways Up is the second part of my anti-bullying and mental health package, taking the emotions from my novel and putting them into positive actions. Together, the two books serve as a complete mini unit teachers can use in their classrooms. I’m thrilled to say Many Ways Up is already in use in Ontario schools!

What to expect

Engaging and accessible from cover to cover, Many Ways Up opens the door to fresh perspectives, new ideas and different possible solutions or steps forward. It recognizes the fact that these issues are complicated and provides a clear approach to topics that have so many people feeling lost and confused.

From one section to the next, you’ll build a better understanding of yourself and your life, all the while establishing candid, honest dialogue and learning the many benefits of talking openly and speaking up. A companion to the novel The Only Way Out written by Katie Kuperman, this workbook is designed for youth and young adults aged 11 to 18+ and is endorsed by educators.

Giving back

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.

I offer volume discounts and special deals when you buy in bulk directly through me, or if you’d like to purchase multiple copies and book me for an in-school presentation. I like to keep things flexible and accommodating so please don’t hesitate to reach out and tell me what you’re looking for.
