I picked this book up wandering through the library on a whim. It took me about 75 pages to really get into it, and to be honest I only kept reading because of the reviews I found online. Half-way through the book I was totally hooked and the last 75-100 pages were heart wrenching as you finally were able to fully realize what had happened to not only Mr. Szajkowski, but to the other students and how teachers and the headmaster all turned a blind eye to it. This book was heart-breaking and as I read it I did notice some similarities to American schools (the book is set in London). With all the anti-bullying that is going on in the media, this is a great book to put it all in perspective to see what really goes through the mind of those bullied. Sometimes they really are just pushed as far as a human can go and then they snap.
All-in-all it was an amazing book that I will be recommending to many people.
