Book of the Week

Date Published: 15/09/2019

Sensitive by Allayne Webster follows the journey into adolescence of SJ who suffers from severe chronic eczema and allergies that are at times life-threatening. Based on the author’s own childhood and adult experiences with these conditions, it is an important novel as it gives a voice to sufferers that is not often heard and it challenges the reader to develop empathy for others and perspective about their own lives.

The story has been written as a middle grade/ young adult crossover novel and is a highly recommended read for all students, parents and teachers as it authentically reveals how people with these conditions suffer in their daily lives.
