This is a great YA read.
A book about bullying and homophobia in high school.
The victims, the by standers, the ones inflicting the violence, the ones that try to stand up for the kids.
Life and stories that come together creating a great book, dealing with some very difficult issues.
Seeing James and Paul, the two MCs, finding their way back to each other, learning to forgive and forget, overcoming all the difficulties.
Paul being so scared to face who he is and his feelings that ends up fighting the only thing that is real and positive in his life. Victim of his own cowardice.
Watching Mr. Green, the one and only teacher that cares about his pupils even after class has ended.
Jason, the master mind behind the hate, so unsatisfied with his own life that you might be even feel sorry for him at one point.
Luke, the one that gets stuck in between and doesn't even know how to get out of the gang.
And it also covers the parents, the ones that don't see the signs or don't want to.
It doesn't get the 5* because of the many edit mistakes, one even confusing the names of the character at the dinner table.
But other than that I highly recommend it.
I recommend this story to those exploring the problem. What I found lacking is a serious discussion on realistic and plausible courses of action that a young person may take to resolve the problem. The resolution of this story may be okay for fiction, but it misses an important opportunity to help young people confront bullying in constructive ways. In fact, the story depicts many of the people that should care about the problem as not wanting to be bothered. Is this the message we really want to give to young people that are facing bullying? That the only person who will care is someone that was bullied as a youngster?
The message I would like to see the intended audience coming away with that there is hope and it doesn’t take a small miracle to get resolution. Most family members, teachers, administrators and neighbors do care. The biggest hurdle is getting the person being bullied to ask for help. In addition, when those who are around young people see avoidance behavior, changes in routine, undue injuries and depression, they need to encourage young people to open up and share what is going on in her/his world.
This story does an okay job of being a story but does not do anything to help the intended audience to reach out for help and to help him/her constructively stop the bullying through constructive intervention. What was alluded to in the story is often the bully him or herself are often being abused as home or by peers.
