    The Bailey Game Celia Rees The Bailey Game explores the terrifying effects of childhood bullying through the eyes of a child who witnesses it happen We see the story unfold from Alex s point of view She s seen the extremes bullying drove a previous school student, Michael Bailey, to, and when she watches a new girl Lauren experience the same nasty taunts, she decides to step in this time She can t deal with the guilt of what happened to Michael Bailey all over again What was it about The Bailey Game Celia Rees The Bailey Game explores the terrifying effects of childhood bullying through the eyes of a child who witnesses it happen We see the story unfold from Alex s point of view She s seen the extremes bullying drove a previous school student, Michael Bailey, to, and when she watches a new girl Lauren experience the same nasty taunts, she decides to step in this time She can t deal with the guilt of what happened to Michael Bailey all over again What was it about him that had made them hate him so much Had he really been that different from other kids It had seemed so then, he d seemed like a freak, a monster But thinking back, he seemed just ordinary He was a bit of a loner, but he hadn t had much choice, it wasn t clear that he was naturally like that He wasn t especially good at anything, but neither was he especially bad Maybe it was his name, or his plumpish build, or his red hair and high forehead, or his clothes, or the way he wore his bag slung across his chest, maybe it was things as trivial as that There was nothing you could point to in particular, but somehow all of them together had marked him out as the butt of all their jokes and what had started as mocking and ridicule had ended in vicious hatred It was a short read and beautifully written Celia Rees did a fantastic job of creating different realistic characters, and she succeeded in making me feel uncomfortable when reading the bullying scenes There was nothing physical involved it was all mental, which can cause much deeper wounds in the long run What could hurtthan the sly digs and insults, left to fester like sores From the start of this short story, the reader is kept in the dark about what exactly happened to Michael Bailey I thought I had the right idea about it, but when it came to the telling scene well wow I had to put the book down, not because I wanted to, but because I could no longer read the words on the page due to the tears forming in my eyes What an impact the reveal had on me Four days later and it s still on my mind This really is a story this will stick with me for life And I think the reason the impact was so great is because these things happen in our real life, and it s horrifying Condensation stopped him from seeing out It dribbled and ran, dripping on the floor like a distillation of the hate forming around him I was truly affected in mounds I am lucky to have never been a victim of bullying, but the subject is something that makes me feel greatly uncomfortable and upset Bullying is never okay And it is okay to speak out, to anyone I almost gave this book a 4 star rating, and then I decided against it Why shouldn t a book that impacted me as much as this one did get a 5 star It might not be a masterpiece, or may not creating an incredible world in your mind like novels do, but it sure does pull on your heartstrings and get a firm grip of your emotions

    Absolutely excellent book about bullying Really goes into the reality of children s worlds, how bullying is not simply about one kid picking on another kid and all it needs is for the teacher to say it should stop for it to stop It actually has the balls to look at bullying as part of the social structures and social hierarchies amongst children, how all within the peer group participate in, negotiate and are complicit with those structures and ideas, and how to judge who is culpable in such c Absolutely excellent book about bullying Really goes into the reality of children s worlds, how bullying is not simply about one kid picking on another kid and all it needs is for the teacher to say it should stop for it to stop It actually has the balls to look at bullying as part of the social structures and social hierarchies amongst children, how all within the peer group participate in, negotiate and are complicit with those structures and ideas, and how to judge who is culpable in such circumstances It also goes into how these ideas from the children s world feed into, or are challenged by, ideas from the world of adults Very good, without every pitching above the heads of its audience, or downplaying the seriousness of the topic

    Potions Prompt for O.W.L s ReadathonThis book has a really powerful message about bullying and it was executed very well I liked the book, but didn t feel much of a connection to the characters I felt like they weren t really explored in depth I think this book wasabout the message than the actual plot and characters, which makes sense as it was a short book A good way to start this month s readathon hosted by Book Roast.

    Official rating would be 3.5 Stars.When I started reading this book, I thought it would be just another book about bullying awareness I didn t think that the bullying would be so much worse It s like those bullies wanted Michael Bailey to actually commit suicide They wanted to see how long Bailey would last I actually believed that Bailey was a ghost and to tell you the truth, it scared the shit out of me I m glad that he isn t I couldn t imagine the pain and how he had to suffer every day Official rating would be 3.5 Stars.When I started reading this book, I thought it would be just another book about bullying awareness I didn t think that the bullying would be so much worse It s like those bullies wanted Michael Bailey to actually commit suicide They wanted to see how long Bailey would last I actually believed that Bailey was a ghost and to tell you the truth, it scared the shit out of me I m glad that he isn t I couldn t imagine the pain and how he had to suffer every day at school At least, he started out fresh after the incident.Lauren moved from Australia to England and she doesn t like it at all She doesn t have any friends because everyone thinks that she s a freak Alex also bullied her at first, but she had a feeling that this would turn out like last time with Bailey She knew she had to stop it So she became friends with Lauren Their friendship was fragile but it grew stronger as Alex and Lauren stood up to the bullies.For one, I don t get bullied Everyone in my school are mostly good natured people though you have to sometimes steer clear from some of them And I do not take part in bullying because it s horrible Why do you want to make someone suffer just because they re lame or doesn t have friends That s just stupid

    This book really made me think a lot about bullies.It really gave you an insight about how far bullying can go and it makes you realise how important it is to tell people who are being bullied to tell someone.I liked Lauren a lot and I really sympathised with her Overall, it was an amazing book.

    26 09 09 Childhood favourite, just read it again for the first time in over ten years It didn t stand up quite as well as I remembered it and if I was rating it now I d probably drop it down to three stars But I was crazy about this when I was younger and read it SO MANY TIMES that I think my five should still hold I d still read it again though so there s still something there.

    I read this book when I was quite young, and I remember loving it I ve read it again, and of course, there are flaws, it s not perfectly written and it s not exactly how I remember it, but it s still a wonderful tale All children should read this book.

    It was a quick and enjoyable story which, as well as being entertaining, highlights the horrors of childhood bullying.
