Going to school is a misery for Sean. Whatever he does to avoid the school bully, Mark Thomas and his mates always catch up with him. Then the students join Warrior Kids, a programme that teaches leadership and self-control. So begins a journey for Mark and Sean that has a predictable outcome for one boy and a surprise for the other.
In this revised novel, first published as Warrior Kids in 2006, Tim Tipene depicts the reality of bullying—and strategies to address it—for children on both sides of the problem.
