內容簡介 《The Boy At the Back of the Class》 作者Onjali Q. Raúf作品 青少年Hector的父母因為慈善工作而頻繁到世界各地出差。Hector有一個自律的姐姐和一個弟弟，和幾位班上愛玩的「好」朋友。Hector常分不清是玩笑還是惡作劇，拿捏不好分際，而常常成為班上的霸凌發動者。有一天，Hector向同學炫耀，自己趁一名街友不注意時，將街友身旁的手推車推進湖裡，並把車內的物品藏到樹上。這個惡作劇被班上女同學看到。從女同學口中，Hector得知這名流浪漢其實是搶劫案的頭頭，而他現在在一家餐廳做廚房義工。為了減輕罪惡感，Hector開始關注這些無家可歸的流浪者們，證明自己不是惡霸，而是英雄。 From Onjali Q. Rauf, the award-winning and best-selling author of The Boy at the Back of the Class, comes another incredible story, told with humour and heart. 'The boy's an absolute menace.' 'He's a bully. A lost cause!' 'Why can't he be more like his sister?' I've been getting into trouble for as long I can remember. Usually I don't mind 'cos some of my best, most brilliant ideas have come from sitting in detention. But recently it feels like no one believes me about anything - even when I'm telling the truth! And it's only gotten worse since I played a prank on the old man who lives in the park. Everyone thinks I'm just a bully. They don't believe I could be a hero. But I'm going to prove them all wrong... Told from the perspective of a bully, this book explores themes of bullying and homelessness, while celebrating kindness, friendship and the potential everyone has to change for the good.
