The Boy At the Back of the Class

by Onjali Q. Rauf
£6.99   paperback  Orion Children's Books (2018)

The Boy At the Back of the Class by Onjali Q. Rauf Told with heart and humour, The Boy at the Back of the Class is a child's perspective on the refugee crisis, highlighting the importance of friendship and kindness in a world that doesn't always make sense.
 
There used to be an empty chair at the back of my class, but now a new boy called Ahmet is sitting in it.

That's where my best friends Josie, Michael and Tom come in. Because you see, together we've come up with a plan...
