Summary

The trouble with Jack was that he didn't listen to anyone.

He didn't even listen to me, his girlfriend.

That's why I was standing on Hutton Moor holding a bunch of flowers. There was a small card attached to them that said, Miss You, Jodie XXXX. I had tears in my eyes.

The Trouble with Jack Reviews

The students enjoyed the story very much - especially the opening of chapter one, which was very dramatic. They said they got hooked in straightaway.

It was a great narrative to encourage students to think for themselves about what had happened and how the characters were feeling.

Students were keen to read and then keen to continue reading. It changed the whole attitude towards reading of two reluctant readers.

I particularly selected a Year 9 group of students who have social and communication difficulties to trial this one because of the subject content.

I was able to use it as a lead in to more work on relationships and coping with difficult situations. It is great to have a fiction text to tackle this kind of thing - more please!
