    One thought on “Destroying Avalon”

    1. This isn't the most realistic book about bullying in my opinion but I think people could learn from this book.I do think there are way better books out there about bullying to teach at schools instead of this one.This book was very plain, bland and predictable but I liked it. I never wanted to put the book down. I was so excited to see what would happen on the next page and it was impossible to put the book down so I could eat dinner. I can now add eating and reading at the same time as a new ta [...]

    2. Put simply, this book is one of my favourite books of all time. It’s beautifully written and it has that cliché feeling at the start, but when you finish, you realise just how original it is.Lemme just give you a heads-up for this book: Things aren’t always what they seem. Oh, and trust no-one.The ending was really creepy, and I can tell you right now that I had shivers after reading this. It was nighttime, but I had the impact that this was a book completely on horror. The worst part is ho [...]

    3. Destroying Avalon is a captivating book based on real life problems that happen in school every day such as cyber bullying and teen suicide, the main theme of the book is about a girl called Avalon moving to the city of Perth and starting at a new school and her life has been made hard by the students of the school. The story is about life in the city and starting at a new school and the hardships of bullying and the bonds of friendship. The main characters are Avalon, Marshall and Dragon girl. [...]

    4. I decided to read this book as it's the text for my 14 year old's English this year and I like to stay in touch with his reading material. I found this book absorbing, terrifying (from a parent's perspective) and uplifting. All the characters are believable and I really sensed the misery experienced by the main character. At the back of my mind I also felt the person perpetrating the bullying was seriously disturbed and it upset me to think that a 'child' could be capable if such hateful behavio [...]

    5. Such a heartbreaking but beautiful story of dealing with a very harsh case of bullying. Every person in high school should be made to read this, teachers included. Similar to 13 reasons why in the fact that they both deal with teenage bullying but it is very original. The issues that come up in this book are extremely relevant to todays school system, showing how the internet and mobile phones can be used as weapons to help destroy peoples lives.

    6. 3.5* I haven't read this book since high school, and decided to reread it after reading a couple of newer Kate McCaffrey books earlier this year. At first it felt quite simplistic and clichéd, but the story really pulls you in, and by about halfway through I just wanted to keep reading. I think this is definitely still an important book especially for teenagers, and I don't think it's overly dated, though I'm sure teens are on their phones a lot more constantly now than when I was in high schoo [...]

    7. Destroying Avalon by Kate McCaffrey is the story of a young girl in high school who, after moving house and attending a new school, becomes the target of an ongoing on-line attack by students at her school.The book itself is fairly simple with a few surprise twists and turns. The characters themselves were mostly well thought out and multidimensional although I think some characters could have gained from being a little bit better thought out. The conflict was interesting and I applaud the fact [...]

    8. i stared at the email in disbelief, the skin around my mouth prickling in horror i had to know what they were saying. i shut my eyes and clicked on the link This book was good and really surprised me so much, the story began very light and happy then it started to get darker and more deeper. The story touched on cyber bullying and bullying in general and the effects it has on the person being bullied. Kate did an excellent job at writing from Avalon's point of view she dealt with a 14 year old g [...]

    9. It was ridiculously badly written. We were forced to read it for school and I was tearing my eyes out because it was so boring. It's extremely outdated for one, and should be taken out of school systems. The way she gets bullied is so unrealistic and trivialises the entire thing. It is also extremely cliche. The storyline and the characters are so stereotypical and predictable. The idea is very unorginal.There are also entire scenes that seem like they were added in only to make the book seem lo [...]

    10. I am in love with this book! And i so want to re read this book!!! This book in my opinion is one of the most realistic books about bullying, and i strongly believe that this book can impact a lot of people and their lives. This book is based on real life problems that happen everyday in school, today. As, a student still currently learning and as someone who has been through bullying (Cyber and Physical) i really related to this book!

    11. Drek. Enough comma splices to kill a goat. Seriously side-eyeing the person that recommended this to me. I feel kind of bad because hell, I've never managed to write a book, but this is perhaps one that needed better editors.

    12. A timely novel when we look at the daily news. No its not a feel good novel, but a disturbing look at the effect cyberbullying has on our adolescents. Parents, teachers and students-read it!

    13. T E R R I B L E. out of every book i have been forced to read during the grueling years of highschool i have completed, this was THE WORST. HANDS DOWN. THE MOST TERRIBLE THING I HAVE READ.

    14. It was a pretty relatable book. It was so simple and original and I wasn't used to that. But it did send my emotions wild.

    15. This novel was great. I loved the main character (written in first person) and how she adapted into a new environment then her previous school. The cyber bullying really made me mad also with the perspective of Avalon (main character). And how she tried to keep her secret safe from others about her cyber bullying. The ending was very sad. When I read the part when Marshall (Avalon's best friend) died from cyber bullying and killed himself. I couldn't hold the tears of Avalon having a heartbroken [...]

    16. I remember picking up this book long long time ago and reading it, it made me cry, it really did, so I decided to buy it and reread it as an adult, I still love it. It's a book everyone should read, it's well written, the characters are likeable and relatable, you hate the bullies and I actually noticed something while I was reading too, as an adult I noticed a lot of small hints that hinted towards who The dragon girl was that I missed as a kid. So it was truly like reading this book for the fi [...]

    17. Possibly the worst book I have ever read. I was forced to read it for school and it is so boring, cliché and poorly written it made me want to chuck it out the window. Had so much potential but it is SO unrealistic. This would never happen. Avalon herself is an extremely unlikable character. I was rooting for dragon girl and Alice.

    18. Destroying Avalon is a book written in 2006 by Kate McCaffery it outlines the theme of bulling and cyber safety. Kate McCaffery is the author of many successful books includingAvalon a fourteen-year-old girl reluctantly moves to Perth away from her home in Grace Point. When she arrives, she is instantly rejected by the ‘popular’ group and becomes the victim of serious cyber bulling with no one behind her except her small group of friends who are also known as the ‘queeros and weidos’.Des [...]

    19. This was another book I had to read it school, I really liked it and shortly after started going through her other novels. I felt the story was important and was glad we were being made to read it, I got emotional at times and really felt for Avalon.

    20. The full review is available on The Basic BookwormDestroying Avalon by Kate McCaffrey is a realistic fiction novel that appeals to young adult readers. After reading Saving Jazz, I was looking forward to getting into this one. It was an interesting read, but I don’t think that it was as good as Saving Jazz.I found the plot interesting and relatable, just like Saving Jazz. As I mentioned in my review for Saving Jazz, I have experienced bullying – both physical and cyber, so I know what Avalon [...]

    21. I searched up 'Cyber-bullying books' and this came up. Wow.I read it.In 2 days.I couldn't seem to put it down. I found myself loving all the characters that I just always wanted more. It was such a smooth book to read if you know what I mean. It wasn't down-right gob-smackingly outstanding with it's plot but it was never boring or unsatisfying. The characters were super easy to love and I related to Avalon so much. I agreed with most of her decisions and thoughts and knew about all her popularit [...]

    22. To be honest I had to read this book for school. I figured it will be smart to read this book before school. I am glad I did. Not only it was an amazing book it also made me cry which I prefer to not to have done that in class. Spoilers ahead:I guessed it was Sukey. It just seemed likely to be her and it wasn't going to be Alice. I did not see Marshall's death coming. That caught me by surprise. When he died it wasn't the death that made me cry it was how Avalon reacted. It was amazingly written [...]

    23. ‘Destroying Avalon’ is a very touching story it all starts with a teen girl named Avalon happy with her life until she moved from the country to the city her life got turned up side down with one simple email and the cyber bulling started. There is twist and turns but they all make you want to read more For example in one of the chapters Avalon has just relied that what she has done in the past is sort of like what Alice is doing to her And another chapter is all about her life before all th [...]

    24. This is a book that gets to the heart of cyber bullying.Like the screech of nails down a blackboard (an old school analogy I know) the feeling of alienation, abuse and anxiety Avalon felt was palpable.I was worried from the first sentence, and screamed early on, 'tell someone'. Her parents are teachers, and even though they could see all the signs that something was not right with Avalon at her new school, they thought she was just settling in. Avalon she can't open up to them.Kate McCaffrey let [...]

    25. *****SPOILER ALERT!!!!!!!!*****This was a really great book. It really shows how bad bullying and online bullying can get, and how serious of an issue it is. The ending was really really sad, and I didn't expect Marshall to die. I didn't want him to kill himself at all because I wanted him and Avalon to go out, but sadly that never happened. People think that suicidal people are pathetic, and yet they continue to bully others. Like, wtf? Most of you are such hypocrites and most likely would have [...]

    26. It was pretty good book to read for teenagers. When I read this book, it changed my viewpoint about new people that I can meet in any situations. This book talks about how Avalon and her friends get bullied and having troubles with school for some reasons. Basically, she and her friends didn't do anything wrong but other students in that school were so mean to them. One of them can't handle it, so he died. The story gets more and more serious and it is getting worse. Avalon and her small amount [...]

    27. So the only reason I did read this was because I had to read it for high school, but like most books I read in high school I really enjoyed it. It was a book that made me excited for the next class to find out more (until some horrible person read ahead and told the whole class the ending, what a cow), and I liked it so much I bought my own copy. It really is a good.This book is captivating. I really found myself identifying with Avalon, even though our situations were far from similar. She was [...]

    28. My 15 year old daughter is reading this for English and it appealed to me so I got it from the library and read it in a weekend. It is the best and most disturbing book I have ever read. I think the Internet is wonderful, you want to know something, google it. Then on the other hand with all these social sites, blog pages etc. it's so easy to bully someone and to do it anonymously and it's so brutal, how on earth could a young teenager cope with it all. The book covered everything so well, their [...]
