Hopewell High: All Too Much

Publisher: Bloomsbury

Samira wants to make her family proud and works incredibly hard at school. Her teachers also want her to do well and can see her potential.

When she becomes the youngest person ever to be asked to join the school quiz team, she feels she must accept – but she also needs to re-check her English essay and make sure her test results are up to scratch.

When the pressure gets too much, Samira has a coping strategy that has potentially serious consequences – but sees no alternative until her friends step in to help.

An absorbing look at the pressures and mental health challenges that can affect young people. Presented in a super-readable format and interspersed with line drawings, this would be ideal for struggling or reluctant readers looking for age-appropriate subject matter.
