The story of a refugee: one child's journey stands for the journeys of many and the hopes of even more.


Absolutely gripping, had to keep reading until I found out what happened to the main character Shif, a boy refugee. The story starts with him arriving on a dinghy in the UK. The rest of the story is about what led up to this arrival. It is SO well written and suitable for older primary onwards. Would most definitely recommend. Provocative, compelling with a hopeful, but not a fairy tale ending.
