About the Book

This story is fictitious but based on true life events. The aspects of bullying are sadly real and part of life today. During the course of this story, the reader will notice that Jodie has a number of problems, including dyslexia. This was classed as a disability in 2001 and has been dealt with in schools by providing various forms of support for schoolchildren around the world. However, problems remain, and some children slip through the net, undetected. This is partly due to the child formulating strategies to deal with their disability. Schools also fail to understand other aspects of dyslexia, such as poor concentration and short-term memory deficit. The child also develops behavioural problems that stem from shear frustration. They get angry and upset. It is known that some smash or throw objects. Jodie tells her own story after being sentenced to jail for grievous bodily harm (GBH). She is very graphic and open about her sexuality. She is also outspoken and sometimes rude. Despite this, she has a heart of gold.
