Next up on our recommended reads list for Anti-Bullying Week is 'The Island' by M.A. Bennett reviewed by CLS Librarian Cassie. "The Island is one of those books that you just can't stop talking or thinking about long after you've finished reading it. It's about a seventeen year old boy called Lincoln who attends a prestigious private school in Oxford where he is viciously bullied by his peers. Everything changes when the plane taking Lincoln and six of his peers to summer camp crashes and they are marooned on a deserted island. On the island there are no rules, no teachers to protect Lincoln and nowhere to hide. This is an absolutely fantastic thriller about power, survival and revenge…! Best suited for Year 9s and upwards- great for adults too. I can't recommend it enough!"


As part of Anti-Bullying Week we are highlighting books about bullying for your schools. Here is our first review from CLS Librarian Marissa: "The wonderful 'Dead Ends' by Erin Lange is told from the unusual perspective of Dane, who is the school bully. He has been suspended countless numbers of times for his violent and antisocial behaviour and is really on his last shot with school. So when Billy D who is the new boy with Down syndrome starts school, Dane is tasked by the head with looking out for him and in return will get to stay at school. Here starts the most unlikely but beautiful friendship and an unputdownable adventure! Perfect to make your Key Stage 3 students think."
