Alternating between the point of view of The Bullied (Alex) and The Bully (Dan). Alex has really severe OCD and Dan has various home problems, but you find yourself rooting for both boys from the beginning. Overflowing with power and warmth, the second book by Stewart Foster, author of The Bubble Boy, will linger long in the mind.


All the Things That Could Go Wrong by Stewart Foster

There are two sides to every story Dan is angry. Nothing has been the same since his big brother left, and he's taking it out on the nearest and weakest target: Alex. Alex is struggling. His severe OCD makes it hard for him to leave the house, especially when Dan and his gang are waiting for him at school ...Then the boys' mums arrange for them to meet up and finish building the raft that Dan started with his brother. Two enemies stuck together for the whole of the school holidays - what could possibly go wrong?
