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!
