James Marsh is sixteen years old and in his final year of high school. He has been suffering from bullying for months at the hands of Jason Mitchell and his friends but, as they return to school after the Easter break, Jason takes his tormenting to a whole new level. As James struggles to cope, Andrew Mitchell, a teacher at the school, finds his hands tied when he tries to help him. "Breaking Point" is a novel about homophobia in our schools, and talks about the sides of bullying which are rarely talked about by the victims, the schools or the media. Recommended for 14 years and upwards due to some more adult themes. This version has been updated and corrected since the reviews of the Kindle edition mentioning typographical errors.
