"This is a future classic."

Sarah Wilkie, Chair of the Carnegie judges

"This book has everything... the writing is of the highest quality, the storytelling well crafted and the charactarisation superb. It involves the young reader in the characters and their situation in a way they can relate to; it is never didactic yet it informs about the issues facing asylum seekers."
