    1. The Bailey Game – Celia ReesThe Bailey Game explores the terrifying effects of childhood bullying through the eyes of a child who witnesses it happen. We see the story unfold from Alex’s point of view. She’s seen the extremes bullying drove a previous school student, Michael Bailey, to, and when she watches a new girl Lauren experience the same nasty taunts, she decides to step in this time. She can’t deal with the guilt of what happened to Michael Bailey all over again “What was it ab [...]


    2. Absolutely excellent book about bullying. Really goes into the reality of children's worlds, how bullying is not simply about one kid picking on another kid and all it needs is for the teacher to say it should stop for it to stop. It actually has the balls to look at bullying as part of the social structures and social hierarchies amongst children, how all within the peer group participate in, negotiate and are complicit with those structures and ideas, and how to judge who is culpable in such c [...]


    3. Official rating would be 3.5 Stars.When I started reading this book, I thought it would be just another book about bullying awareness. I didn't think that the bullying would be so much worse. It's like those bullies wanted Michael Bailey to actually commit suicide. They wanted to see how long Bailey would last. I actually believed that Bailey was a ghost and to tell you the truth, it scared the shit out of me. I'm glad that he isn't. I couldn't imagine the pain and how he had to suffer every day [...]


    4. The Bailey Game is a very powerful read that explores the terrifying effects of childhood bulling through the eyes of a child who witnesses it happen. We see the story unfold through Alex Lewis 's eyes she's seen the extremes bulling drove a boy called Michael Bailey through two years ago and watches a new girl called Lauren Price experience the same thing. Alex decides to step in this time and her and Lauren become good friends. Celia Rees did an excellent job of creating different realistic ch [...]


    5. This book really made me think a lot about bullies.It really gave you an insight about how far bullying can go and it makes you realise how important it is to tell people who are being bullied to tell someone.I liked Lauren a lot and I really sympathised with her. Overall, it was an amazing book.


    6. 26/09/09 - Childhood favourite, just read it again for the first time in over ten years. It didn't stand up quite as well as I remembered it and if I was rating it now I'd probably drop it down to three stars. But I was crazy about this when I was younger and read it SO MANY TIMES that I think my five should still hold. I'd still read it again though - so there's still something there.


    7. I read this book when I was quite young, and I remember loving it. I've read it again, and of course, there are flaws, it's not perfectly written and it's not exactly how I remember it, but it's still a wonderful tale. All children should read this book.


    8. It was a quick and enjoyable story which, as well as being entertaining, highlights the horrors of childhood bullying.





    9. Har läst bättre böcker än denna. Den var tråkig, hade dålig handling och kunde ha varit mer spännande. Denna rekommenderar jag inte.


    10. I picked up The Bailey Game, because I'd read "Witch Child" by Celia Rees and really liked it. The Bailey Game is entirely different. It's a book about bullying and I think a very useful one at that. But it's not really of any literary interest. I passed it on to my daughter who's in year 7 to read.
