Whatever happens in the schools visited in the stories “is ok”. A disabled girl is tortured by classmates and finds support in a foreign mate who is aware of the uneasiness of feeling different. A girl can be sexually abused or raped by some of her mates during the lesson with the teacher in class without causing an immediate and meaningful reaction at school. A 12-year-old boy attending one of the best schools for cultural and social family background tries to commit suicide because he is constantly victim of mockery acted out by the mates… these are some of the topics that can be found in the book “Everything is ok”, a collection of 8 stories set at school that can make us aware of the feelings and thoughts of common teenagers who are involved in uncommon situations where they need to dominate weak people in order to feel strong and accepted.
