    Stereotype (Claire Hennessy)

    Rate this media item:

    • “Always remember that you are unique. Just like everyone else.”

      Abigail Evans, transition-year student – a typical neurotic teenager or does she have a real problem?

      When she feels empty and to combat the blahness, she buys stuff she doesn’t really need or want. Well, if she doesn’t do that then she has to cut herself with razor-blades that leave ugly red scars along the inside of her arm. Then she has to wear long sleeves until the scabs fall off.

      But why does she cut herself? She’s not from a dysfunctional family, hasn’t had a horrible childhood experience, and she has friends: Leanne – sarcastic and bitchy, Tina – always on a diet, Karen – fits in everywhere.

      They all drive her mad.

      They are stereotypical teenagers. How boring!

      So is it all just melodramatic teen angst or is Abi seriously screwed up, and no one is listening?
