Being different isn't easy but it can be exciting!

How well do you know your friends? Are they left-handed or right-handed? Are they left-brained or right-brained? And what difference does it make?

Shocked at discovering how left-handers are persecuted, Jamie ties her hand behind her back for a public protest in school. This does not go down well with the teachers.

Her best friend Ryan joins in but just when their campaign is working, Ryan's mother drops a bombshell. She's whisking him off from Wales UK to live back in America. There he faces bullying at its most deadly, and Jamie has to live from one email to the next, waiting to know whether her friend is hanging in there.

A modern classic of friendship and teen life, with all its pitfalls and challenges.

Review quote

"A must for all left handers." AGL Review

"As a parent and a teacher, I felt this book in my gut. It hits so close to home on more levels than I can count. I felt for all those kids, all those teachers and parents trying, failing and succeeding at doing the best they can," Anita Kovacevik, teacher and children's author, contributor to the international Inner Giant Anti-Bullying Project.

"A compelling story about friendship, its strength, and the unusual ways it develops."

Rebecca P. McCray, The Journey of the Marked

"Jean Gill brings her magical storytelling skills to teens, to weave compelling and thought-provoking stories that will linger on in teens'/ their minds well after the last page is read." Kristin Gleeson, author and children's librarian

"I would most definitely recommend this book to a friend because it is very interesting." Shaelan Scott, Teen Turf Reviewer for Readers Review Room

"This book was a short interesting read. It really moved me with how people will do every little thing they can to make what they believe get across to others." Charity Martinez, Teen Reviewer for 5 Girls Book Reviews
