"If a child slips through the net and leaves school without being able to read and write, that child will be starting a life sentence - embarrassment, rage, isolation, fear, torment. I know. I’ve been there and so have thousands of others."
Sue was a dinner lady when, at the age of 38, she finally admitted that she couldn't read or write. Secrets is an autobiographical account of the difficulties she faced in a life without literacy. The book has been designed for both beginner and confident readers, with standard text on the left-hand page and a simplified text on the facing page. Secrets also makes fascinating reading for children of primary and secondary school age.
