Piddy Sanchez is bright, attractive and the new student at a tough inner city high school. Unfortunately for her, she attracts the attention of the most vicious and ruthless girl gang leader in the school – Yaqui Delgado. From that moment on Piddy’s life at school and in her community becomes unbearable.
Yaqui Delgado Wants to Kick Your Ass – is a brutal tale of bullying and the fear that is created by it. It vividly recreates the terror that a victim and their family feels. However it also creates a sense of hope and clearly shows how friendship and kindness can help a victim to survive.
While set in a somewhat stereotypical US high school, the issues are transferable and recognisable in any school setting.
