Product description

Emily Bowyer is a normal, confident teenager - lots of friends, loving family and a good student. But beneath the surface she has a wretched secret.
Because, for Emily, life isnÆt as much fun as it would appear. Her friends are going off her and her parents only seem to care about her troubled brother. Plus, sheÆs expected to complete hours of homework, to excel in her exams, to be the perfect student.
Tension, pressure, anxiety, anger and self-hatred. Where does it go when no one will listen? Emily has found a way to let it all out, a way to cope when life is overwhelming. But it is private. No one must ever find out . . .
RED TEARS is a shocking, extremely well-researched novel about a girl who self-harms. It offers a bold and candid look at a phenomenon that afflicts thousands of BritainÆs teenagers.
* RED TEARS is the first British YA novel that focuses solely on this phenomenon
* More than 24,000 teenagers are admitted to hospital each year in the UK after deliberately hurting themselves. Recent research suggests that one in ten teenagers self-harm - so statistically every teacher has one or two self-harmers in their classroom at any time.
*A Child Line study from the period April 2002 to March 2003 revealed that most callers (70%) were aged between 12 and 15. For almost half (46%) self-harm was an ongoing problem. 12% had been deliberately hurting themselves for five years or more.
