An anthology of short stories and poems about young refugees and asylum seekers.
There are tales of home, and missing it; poems about living in refugee camps and the struggle of making new friends; accounts of children confronting prejudice, but also stories of their fortitude, their dreams and aspirations.
Many young refugees have experienced unimaginable horror and endured dangerous journeys. They need our kindness and empathy in order to process their trauma. This book encourages us to build bridges, not walls, and to understand the plight of those seeking a safe place to call home.
