Jump to Competition

This engaging and thought-provoking series is a must-have inclusive collection that offers a powerful opportunity to open conversations, challenge bias and prejudice, foster a sense of community, and build resilience.

Written by award-winning writer, editor and journalist, Katharine Quarmby, these titles can act as ‘mirrors’, reflecting the reader’s own experiences to help them feel heard and understood, as well as ‘windows’, where students are given an insight into lives different from their own.

Set in an inner city school, each book looks at the experience of a student who is going through a difficult time. The books navigate the reader through hardships and signpost how to access, or offer, help. Although the books can be hard-hitting, the subjects examined are expertly and sensitively handled. The series is also suitable for dyslexic readers with a dyslexia-friendly font, extra spacing, and off-white paper.
