This very brief novella gives us an introduction to Jared leading up to the beginning of Unspoken.

Told from the POV of the school counsellor at his previous school, who was obviously very concerned about him, we get to see a little look at his behaviour before he came to Sorry-in-the-Vale. It was actually really sad. Jared is looked upon as a loner and a disturbed boy who gets into fights and may or may not have murdered his father. But through his sessions with the counsellor, and some of the incidents that she witnesses, we learn that there is much more to him than how he is perceived - as those who have read Unspoken will know. His relationship with Kami does come into it, and I loved seeing his take on their friendship, and the fact that he wasn't afraid to talk about her.

While not a necessary read, it does give us a little more insight into this mysteriously tortured character.
