Madina’s family have fled war to seek asylum in Europe and begin a hopeful new life. An ordinary world of fitting in at school, learning the language and forging friendships lies before Madina. Yet she finds herself caught between her new life and her traumatic memories of the past. With the endless wait to be granted asylum, and her anxious father growing ever more controlling, can Madina find the path that’s right for her?

I really enjoyed this book and I think that it is an important book for young adults, and in fact anyone, to read. It was so raw and real and also so beautifully written. with a storyline that is affecting so many people in these current times. A great read that I will definitely reread.
