Summary
From the editor of 'A Country of Refuge' comes an anthology of new writing on one of the defining issues of our time; focusing on the fate of refugee children and young adults, it is aimed at children and adult readers alike. There are tales of home, and missing it; poems about the dangerous journeys undertaken and life in the refugee camps; stories about prejudice, but also stories of children's fortitude, their dreams and aspirations. this book implores us to build bridges, not walls. It is intended as a reminder of our shared humanity, seeking to challenge the negative narratives that so often cloud our view of these vulnerable young people, and prevent us giving them the empathy they deserve. It includes newly commissioned stories, flash fiction, poetry and original artwork from some of our finest children's writers
