Pressure: that’s all Emily feels. She’s a top student expected to do well at GCSEs, she’s a dutiful daughter, doing what her parents expect of her, she’s always been a good friend, popular enough with her gang. But when it all becomes too much too handle, Emily finds her own very private relief through self harming. Powerfully written, this is harrowing story of a teenager’s struggle to cope with her life.

Synopsis

Red Tears by Joanna Kenrick

Emily Bowyer is a normal, confident teenager. But beneath the surface she has a wretched secret. Because, for Emily, life isn't as much fun as it would appear. Her friends are going off her and her parents only seem to care about her troubled brother. Tension, pressure, anxiety, anger and self-hatred - where does it go when no one will listen?

About the Author

Joanna Kenrick on Joanna Kenrick

1. I live in a little village just outside Oxfordshire with my husband. The back garden has the most wonderful view and we actually only bought the house because of it!

2. I looove cheese. Brie, stilton, cheddar, feta, halloumi - I honestly love cheese more than chocolate.

3. I used to be an actress. My degree was in Performing Arts, and for five years I roamed the country, both its indoor and its outdoor venues. My favourite role was Helena in A Midsummer Night's Dream, but I had the best ever costume as the Rat in a children's play called Trouble Underfoot.

4. I play the flute quite well and the piano rather badly. I used to be quite good at both but when you stop practising you soon lose your edge!

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

Angela East

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

Jessica Cobbin – age 7

We love Lovereading4kids because it promotes reading choices, new authors and a sense of community for children of all ages!

Rachel Bridgeman

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

Lorraine Woods

We love Lovereading4kids because they put books in front of us we wouldn’t otherwise have read. They make us more adventurous readers!

Emily Jacques

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

Alexander Boxall – age 11

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
