Michael Gerard Bauer’s background as a teacher only partly accounts for his ability to write about teenagers and issues of importance to them. In his latest book, The pain, my mother, Sir TYiffy, cyber boy and me we become involved in the life of a fifteen year old called Maggie Butt.
Although the book has a light-hearted approach nevertheless it deals with issues such as being loyal, the building of relationships, accepting others and also gives some essay writing tips along the way.
