Overview

Rhona grows up with her collected labels of being lazy and immature. She spends her unhappy days, re-doing work, dreading reading sessions, dreaming of escaping it all. She is lost, she does not understand why her efforts results in poor marks, cementing her place in the retard class. She falls further behind in Primary School with a bully of a teacher and her self-esteem is rock bottom. Rhona skilfully develops ingenious strategies and is forever adapting to accommodate the latest challenge. Survival is a daily task. A broken limb and a change of school provides relief. Rhona’s Secondary School English teacher looks beyond the trees of the pre-existing labels and sees the complete view. She sees a bright child with dyslexia and gently shows Rhona a way out of the forest. Rhona still battles with trust and luck and needs all her resourcefulness and determination, but the path looks like it could lead out and so Rhona’s life begins to have hope and a possible future.
