Review

An emotive, inspirational and at times a funny read. Cleverly written with a captivating plot that keeps the readers attention throughout, in addition to being an excellent story the core message of the book is one of positivity and a helpful tool to deal with the common problems many young people face. A thoroughly enjoyable book and one I would highly recommend! --Sam

A very gripping read, I could not put it down. There are eliments of this book that can touch families from all walks of life. I think every high school child should read this book especially if they are experiencing difficult times. It will most definately help me if my two boys experience bullying. Very much look forward to the next book. --Fiona

A good read with powerful issues dealt with in a clear and positive manner. Congratulations to the authors. Should be compulsory reading for all bullies! Look forward to the next book. --Pete

Product Description

The Water Carrier is a gritty novel about 15 year old Alfie who has a troubled home life and is mercilessly bullied at school, but his world is about to change. Together with his friends Leroy and Ami, Alfie discovers the secret life of the school caretaker from Croatia; Tomo Bilic. Alfie persuades Leroy, Ami and Bilic to help him with his dream of becoming a star footballer and the novel charts the ups and downs of the journey towards Alfie’s goal, which involves the three friends combating violence, homophobia and racism. The book is an interesting read for young adults, not only is it a gripping story but it also contains valuable lessons in positive thinking. Readers are also encouraged to be part of The Chronicles of Alfie Finch by getting involved in developing future storylines and plots via the website. Further support is also available online for readers who need more information on building their self-confidence and self-esteem.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great message! 22 Jan 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I would like to think that all children who don't feel part of "the gang" would be able to read this book. It really lifts your spirits and is a way of encouraging children to really focus on what they are good at and not just on what they aren't good at.

Love it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Dealing with Teenager angst this does the job! 28 Sep 2012
Format:Paperback
A gem of a book that sensitively handles a challenging subject. Written very much with both the parent looking for options and the young person in mind, it engages and informs in equal measure. I felt particularly uplifted, as a parent prone to angsting, how well I was doing compared to Alfie's parents woeful attempts!
