‘Don’t cry’, soothed Mum. ‘What brought on this terrible nightmare?’

‘In class, no-one wanted to be my partner so I had to work with a boy! Then I told the teacher a wrong answer and they all laughed at me. ‘At lunch, they all sat in a circle and when I tried to squeeze in, they wouldn’t let me in. They carried on as if I wasn’t even there. ‘After I’d eaten my lunch on my own, I helped a teacher carry some things and they pulled faces at me and called me, “Teacher’s pet”.
