Product description

Shortlisted for the Carnegie Medal 2014

One city: two communities divided by a wall and armed soldiers. What is on the other side? Berlin, Belfast, Israel: a book to make you fear and think. Joshua lives with his mother and stepfather in a divided city. A great wall patrolled by soldiers separates its two communities. Only the rubble-strewn debris of their broken world gives hints of an old life before the wall. One day Joshua finds a tunnel which leads in pitch darkness under the wall and across to the other side. Forbidden territory: a violent place which a boy like him – visibly different – should never stray into. A girl’s act of kindness saves his life. But how can Joshua ever make up for the terrible crime that results?
