'What I've never understood before I read this book is how easy it is for a victim of bullying to become a bully. Want to know how Siobhan finds the power? You'll have to read the book!' -- Reading Matters (www.readingmatters.co.uk) 'Very real and sympathetic characters set in a convincing background.' -- Ann Turnbull, Armadillo magazine, summer 2004 'Both useful and good, Bullies at School is a realistic story with notes and advice at the end.' -- School Librarian, Summer 2004 'This is a vivid, sensitive account of the powerlessness of children and of how understanding can help them gain control.' -- Frances Perkins, Bournemouth Daily Echo, 13 March 2004 'A realistic school story which shows how important it is for the victim to let someone know what is going on. Includes a poem by the author, facts about bullying, what to do if you are victimised, and a list of helpful contacts. A useful story to support class discussion.' -- Junior Education 'A good solid read -- Siobhan's discovery (a mysterious plaid pin in the form of a coiled snake) gives her the power to face down her persecutors -- and you learn a lot about the Celts as well.' -- Books for Keeps --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
