Description

Jamila is in a new country, at a new school, starting a brand new life. Will she find her voice?

Jamila wants to fit in, but it’s hard when you miss your very best friend back home in Iraq, and you’re worried about your dad's safety, and your mum need your help with the simplest of tasks. When she joins the school choir, Jamila believes she may just have found somewhere to belong. Soon, she finds a new friend, and she dares to hope again.

Songbird follows Jamila as she experiences life as an Iraqi refugee in Australia. Author Ingrid Laguna draws on her experiences as a teacher to adults and children from all over the world to create this timely and tender story about resilience, new experiences, friendship, and finding a way to shine.
