This book haunted me for a whole. I read it a long time ago but it still resonates in my mind.
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 characters and her book points out that sometimes even though bullies can be frightening bullies must be stood up to and even if someone is new and from a different town you should never judge a person before you get to know them. My favourite characters would have to be Alex Lewis, Lauren Price and Caroline Price.

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 at school. At least, he started out fresh after the incident.
Lauren moved from Australia to England and she doesn't like it at all. She doesn't have any friends because everyone thinks that she's a freak. Alex also bullied her at first, but she had a feeling that this would turn out like last time with Bailey. She knew she had to stop it. So she became friends with Lauren. Their friendship was fragile but it grew stronger as Alex and Lauren stood up to the bullies.
For one, I don't get bullied. Everyone in my school are mostly goodnatured people though you have to sometimes steer clear from some of them. And I do not take part in bullying because it's horrible! Why do you want to make someone suffer just because they're lame or doesn't have friends? That's just stupid! 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. 26/09/09Childhood 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 thoughso there's still something there. 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. its about this boy who is always getting bullied,its kind a sad 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 circumstances. It also goes into how these ideas from the children's world feed into, or are challenged by, ideas from the world of adults. Very good, without every pitching above the heads of its audience, or downplaying the seriousness of the topic. Potions Prompt for O.W.L's Readathon
This book has a really powerful message about bullying and it was executed very well. I liked the book, but didn't feel much of a connection to the characters. I felt like they weren't really explored in depth. I think this book was more about the message than the actual plot and characters, which makes sense as it was a short book. A good way to start this month's readathon hosted by Book Roast.
