Michaela Morgan says she was moved to write this story after seeing children at a school with expensive trainers. This book sends the very poor message that the only way to be cool is to have an expensive pair of trainers to be like evryone else. What kind of message is that to send to young, impressionable children? There's already youth crime based on what mobile phone or clothing you wear, and envy based on not having what others have got. I think this is an atrocious book, and the author should be ashamed of herself.
