There's a Boy in the Girls' Bathroom

Bradley Chalkers

Bradley Chalkers is a lonely, strange, bold yet good character. Deep down Bradley is very loving and caring, but he’s too afraid to show it. Bradley is also smart. He is very tough at the start of the book. As the book goes deeper and deeper you realise that Bradley is a very mixed up character

Carla’s Diary

My First Day at Red Hill School
Dear Diary,

It’s me Carla and I’m the new counsellor in Red Hill School. I’m finding it hard to adjust. The other teacher looked at me in a strange way, I think it might be because they have other friends and don’t want to be friends with me. The first person that came to my office was a boy called Jeff Fishkin. Jeff seems like a sweet boy. Jeff is a good boy in a bad situation but deep down he is a very sweet boy. He is friends with a boy called Bradley, well I think that they are friends. Jeff is so kind and he is my first friend in the school. HOORAH.
Next Bradley came in. I felt confident. I was so happy to have a friend I forgot all the bad things that people had told me about him. Bradley came in looking at the floor. He started talking to me. We were talking for a little while; I started to realize that he was a dull boy. I let him draw a picture. Then he left. I think Bradley is quite strange.


Bradley Chalkers used to be the meanest in his class but with some help from Carla his counsellor he is gradually becoming very nice. In the last Chapter Bradley and Jeff were going to Colleen’s birthday party. Bradley was going to Carla’s office on Saturday because she was leaving to be a kindergarten teacher in another school and he didn’t like it so he didn’t go. Later he changed his mind. He ran over to her desk and she wasn’t there and he found a letter that she had written to him and read it. He tried to write a letter back but he couldn’t.

  1. I really liked the book because it was very interesting that a boy from being one of the boldest boys to becoming one of the best. The book had an exciting storyline whenever we stopped reading it was a cliffhanger.

  2. I enjoyed reading this post. I also liked listening to the book. I hope we read another like it.
