January Book of the Month

A young lad determines to change his ways when the consequences of his bullying prank on a homeless man are laid bare.

I’ve been getting into trouble for as long I can remember. Usually I don’t mind ‘cos some of my best, most brilliant ideas have come from sitting in detention. But recently it feels like no one believes me about anything – even when I’m telling the truth! And it’s only gotten worse since I played a prank on the old man who lives in the park. Everyone thinks I’m just a bully. They don’t believe I could be a hero. But I’m going to prove them all wrong…

Written from a bully’s perspective, this is an engrossing read on the impacts of homelessness. Told through humour, it includes themes of kindness and empathy, whilst celebrating that everyone can change for good.
