When the bomb goes off at their school, killing the student teacher, it looks as if the friendship between Ruby Tanya and Asra could be over. Asra and her fellow asylum-seekers are blamed - and Ruby Tanya's father is the one leading the campaign against them.

But Asra's family are also facing another threat - the government has ordered that they must be sent back to a country where their lives are in danger. Ruby Tanya and Asra have a plan to stop all the madness, but end up stumbling on something even more terrifying...
A thought-provoking and important novel for our time from a multi-award-winning author.
