Featured Reviews

This book is a nice simple exploration of what it means to be an outsider - whether in a different country, town or your own community. It addresses some very current issues surrounding immigration , alienation, and racism, culminating in a shocking act that reveals how far these problems can reach if they are not addressed. The novel offers some hope to the reader however overall I think this is more a cautionary tale of the crossroads at which Europe currently stands.
