"Thief at School” is the first anti-bullying novel in Lithuania of its kind that is written for teenagers (their parents also find useful information) and it is written in hip-hop manner. The book already left a mark in Lithuania: children after reading this book use it in their essays at the final exams, schoolchildren are winning awards when they express this book at the school contests rather than using classic authors. Why this book is so popular against teenagers and why it is useful for them? Because “Thief at school” is the only novel that touches the subjects they need answers to: bullying, problems with learning, loneliness, social networks, suicide, not knowing what to do in life, first love, drugs, parents divorce, diseases and lots of other issues that are important to teenagers and these problems vanish with every book page.

What makes this book unique

The idea to write the book “Thief at School” came to authors when they found practical life law -those who get bullied most, latter in life are more successful (victims go up, bullies go down), sadly, lots of teenagers don’t know that and sometimes commit suicide. Main goal of the book is to show that many successful people (e. g. rapper Eminem, MMA star Conor McGregor, legendary athlete Michael Phelps) suffered from bullying, but vision helped them through difficult times at school. So, the book is full of true stories, it is written in easy reading manner, including hip-hop techniques, showing how learning can be useful (thus a thief - steal knowledge from school), how to use it to find your vision.
