About this product

A work of fiction based on real-life stories, Moderate Violence is sensitively and thoughtfully written, perfectly describing how someone could quickly descend into the darkness of self-harm. A recommended read for young people or parents who want to try and put into words the life events that are sometimes just too hard to describe.

Staff Review

Review by:

Rachel Welch

Interested in practical application and mental health.

Don't be put off by the title, Moderate Violence is a carefully written teen novel that covers a whole range of issues from relationships, identity and self-harm. The self-harm element is almost incidental, which makes for a much easier read, yet still highlights just how easy it is for any teenager to succumb.

This would make an ideal read for any young person who wants to get to grips with understanding these issues in a different way, and it's a great conversation-starter for an adult who is trying to offer support and is looking for a different way to broach a difficult subject.

Moderate Violence may conjure up a variety of assumptions, but by the end you realise how clever the title really is. This is self-harm fiction that works.
