FAB Club 2 – Friends Against Cyberbullying has just won bronze in the wishing shelf Book awards. FAB (Friends Against Bullying) Club was shortlisted for the award last year, so I’m delighted that the sequel was an even bigger hit with young readers.
My new book arrived this week. It is always a bit scary designing something from thousands of miles away and hoping it will turn out okay. Fortunately, it is exactly the way I had hoped it would be.
My editor and Advance Reading Team have made this a great book. Head to Amazon if you want to take a closer look.
After FAB (Friends Against Bullying) Club was well received by kids, I wrote a sequel, FAB Club 2 - Friends Against Cyberbullying.
My editor said it was the book she would have liked to have read as a child. If you know any kids who are being bullied, they might like to read it too.
The Press in Christchurch (now calling itself Stuff, unfortunately) is doing a series this week about bullying and it makes disturbing reading. There are ways to prevent bullying, but it seems those methods are not being implemented across New Zealand schools.
I hope this spurs more action, but I feel newspapers aren't as influential as they once were.
