Misunderstandings And Prejudice
There is the theme of prejudice. “Everyone deserves to be judged by the content of their character and not their skin colour.” Bad experiences in the past have broken through to affect attitudes. Stereotyping compounds the prejudiced outlook.
Character links to this. It is the state of a person’s heart that is important. The inside is far more crucial than the outside.
Misunderstandings arise due to jumping to conclusions. It is always important to talk.
The novel addresses stuttering, bullies and suicide. It is sensitively tackled but the reader’s heart breaks.
Once again Alexis Goring has drawn wonderful, warm and likable characters whilst producing a story that not only entertains but has godly lessons for us all.
A delightful afternoon’s read.
