Rachel's bullies have been relentless in their torment. Amanda and her cronies have punished Rachel in all kinds of cruel and humiliating ways and poor Rachel sees no way of escape. Niamh and Paul are worried but Rachel won't speak up. Instead Rachel has suffered in silence but there is only so much one girl can take.
Amanda's cruelty seems to know no bounds and even though Rachel has carried out some of her twisted pranks, Amanda's latest nasty game was too much. Amanda tried to get Rachel to make fun of a schoolmate with a disability but Rachel refused. In a bid to escape the consequences, Rachel got herself suspended on purpose and has been hiding out at home. However Amanda's malice is not just confined to school.
