Product Description

“There are guns and bandits in this story. And supermodels. And there’s drought and starvation too. Are you wondering how they can all come together? Well, that’s how life is these days. Things don’t happen neatly in separate little places. We’re all caught by the great spider’s web of media that spans the world. That’s where this story is set. The world. It’s the story of Abdi and Khadija and Freya (that’s me) and what happened to us because of Somalia…”

A second-generation Somali refugee tells the unforgettable story of herself and her friends in this masterful novel from Carnegie Medal winner Gillian Cross; a tale of identity, change, secrets, and the struggle to find a place to really belong.

    Such an interesting book, and every page was excellently written. When I read it, i couldn’t put it down, and placing the book in the background of Somalia was the greatest touch.
