How is the setting used to show the failings of the judicial and state care systems? The school is because ricky found out that slim white boys are easier to deal with than fat maori boys. Also the state care put him with his mum who married a man and step dads have been renowned for being or even killing their children.Ricky felt the school was teaching the wrong stuff to him and that’s why he kept moving schools

What are some of the ideas crump is trying to convey about the family?He is trying to show that the family has fallen apart but there is still hope for ricky baker.He has one part of the family that hasn’t fallen his aunt and uncle.He shows that they are the perfect family for him until Aunty bella dies and he’s left with his angry uncle hec.But after awhile he realizes he isn’t that bad and they have a lot in common with each other.
