How does an asylum seeker feel? What do they think? How did they get here? How are they different to you and me?
This is the story of a young girl & her mother seeking asylum.
After running, hiding & taking a long boat trip to find safety from guns and horrible atrocities they find themselves outcasts, different.
They try to fit in with their new home. Her mother finds a job, she goes to school, but they are still different. Her father is still in the other place trying to get out too.
Will she ever see Dad again? Will she ever feel like she fits in at school & in the community? Will feeling truly free be normal again?
A poignant children’s illustrated book delicately touching on the subject of asylum seekers across the world. A must for every school library.
