Bullying is also a theme of Crossing the Line by Gillian Philipcourageously told from the perspective of an ex-bully. I thought this was a wonderfully honest book and a tremendously tense one, too.
This was a good mystery that kept me wondering what new insight was going to be turned up in the locating of Pat. And anyway, he lacks the courage. His mother is lovely but overworked and distracted.
It is the story of how Luke travels to a small island to find his sister who went missing from her dream "Save the Sea Creatures" internship. This book really draws you in and allows you to feel the emotions of everyone connected to Pat.
The people he meets there are all so helpful, but can he really trust them? I loved the detail and the ideas surrounding what life is like as a teenager and how life can change in such a short time.
It illustrates peer groups and peer pressures perfectly. The story takes place on a small island off the coast of Honduras. Zoe, on the other hand, is a newcomer. David is a long-time friend of Knaggs, but he knows the bullying is going too far.
This was a good mystery that kept me wondering what new insight wa This book was also a random pick from the shelf. In Luke and Jon by Robert Williamsanother boy is faced with a dilemma about whether or not to stand up to a bully.
It is a quick read but it keeps you interested throughout the whole book. Of course, this structure is much more than a safety valve.
Between his drug and alcohol tirades, he tries to dig up the clues to find Pat or "Tricia" as her new friends call her. This is the kind of book that leaves you feeling empty once you finish it. Every reader will recognise these fully-fleshed characters, and will feel the claustrophic atmosphere of a set of teenage relationships going badly wrong.
While this book was nothing totally different from a high schoolish horror movie; it was a quick, fun read. I think the wonderful Secret Heart by David Almond might also appeal.
Nobody does anything about it, including David. The crisis is unavoidable and it looms large from the very first page of the book. The writing was great - very descriptive - I just wanted to know what was going to happen next. The police on the island have too few resources and time to investigate the case fully.
Knaggs is one of those boys you hate on the inside but pretend to like on the outside, lest he turns his attention on you. The author keeps you on your toes with clues surrounding the disappearance.
Who wants to be Gary Mark II? Who wants to stand alone against Knaggs?
Zoe has moved from London to rural Norfolk - her parents are expecting a late baby and they want to downsize, get out of the city, and live in a more sustainable way. In fact, far from it.
Jul 27, Jennie Machines rated it really liked it This book was also a random pick from the shelf. If you are looking for a quick, and interesting mystery with many connections to the life as a teenager, this is the book for you.
Laidlaw, leads you through the story never letting you be sure of where Pat is or what happened to her. My thanks to the good people at Bloomsbury for sending the book. Laidlaw has an unerring ability to project herself into the adolescent mindset while spinning a compelling mystery story.
Teen fiction but who cares - this adult loved it!What the fuck is going on inside my head? Tell me, Dr. Val, what's your diag-nonsense? Valerie: [ hovering over Susanna ] You are a lazy, self. I’m a Christian and relatively intelligent but these experiences are not a think yourself happy.
Believe me by faith or intellect, if I could “fix’ it I would have. This existence is billsimas.com I’m writing this while on vacation holding back tears while everyone sleeps.
Through the presentation of three brief case studies of lower-attaining Year 4 (year-old boys) the article considers the implications of assessing writing without acknowledging the role of the writer.
Excited to read a Giveaway book, I dove right into S.J. Laidlaw's page turner "The Voice Inside My Head." This book keeps you on the edge of your seat as Luke heads to Utila to find his missing sister who he still believes to be alive/5.
