9780340997680: Asylum

Set in an about-to-be-demolished high-rise block of flats, various characters have arrived from a variety of situations; their lives and their stories, interweave, change and affect each other, and travel towards deeply moving, often funny, happy and painful outcomes.

At the core of the story are two asylum seekers: All fifteen-year-old Sunday wanted was a country that was democratic and respectful of human life. All eight-year-old Rosa wanted was somewhere safe, away from the bad things of the past. Through their eyes, ideas of Britain and belonging are explored.

Moving, thoughtful, outstanding and unforgettable.

A sweet story about friendship. ( Bliss)

A sensitive and thought-provoking exploration of the human stories and desperation behind our immigration figures. ( Bournemouth Daily Echo)

Moving, sensitve and thought-provoking...a powerful, compelling book. A book I feel should be in all secondary school libraries. ( School Librarian)
