Watch Out For Jamie Joel

by Mike Dumbleton

A courageous novel – honest, compassionate and wry – about what really goes on in a tough high school. Told alternately from the point of view of the most troublesome student (a difficult but astute girl) and the deputy principal (a sympathetic but overworked man), this story explores dangerous boundaries and reveals uncomfortable truths about parents, students and teachers.
