Book Description

Dec 12 2012 Thriller First
Siobhan is unhappy at school. Tormented by some classmates, she feels unable to confide in her teacher or her mum. She has no one to talk to, no one to play with. One day she finds a strange brooch and it seems to help her - it makes her stronger. But then Siobhan realises that to take revenge means that she might herself become a bully. Will she be able to find the courage to speak out against the bullies? This title includes extra material on bullying, including how to be bullyproof and where to turn for help, with up-to-date contact details.

Product Description


'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 an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
