Even if she doesn't believe in the ghost of Michael Bailey, Alex Lewis is still haunted by the memory of the terrifying incident that took place two years ago, and by the fact that she too played the vicious game which led to it - the Bailey Game. And all it takes for the game to start again is the arrival of a new girl, Lauren Price, who doesn't quite fit in with the rest of the class. Alex is suddenly confronted with some difficult decisions, but ultimately her friendship with Lauren and her memory of the unstoppable Bailey Game demand that this time she opts out of the game and faces the perils of being on the outside . . . `A very exciting and disturbing tale which will hold the reader's interest right to the end. I highly recommend THE BAILEY GAME' Michele Elliot, KIDSCAPE

From AudioFile:

Kim Hicks keenly brings to life just how mean children can be. The neat trick of transforming her accent from British English to Australian English in dialogue between characters adds realism and freshness to the story. Bullying gone too far is the major theme in this drama, but the lessons of real friendship and basic human kindness balance the plot. Hicks's rendition of playground antics and school pranks pulled off by teenaged intimidators reveals the true junior high school experience. Although the story is set in Britain, listeners everywhere can learn a lesson from this universal story of growing up in the harsh world of adolescence.
