Shortlisted Little Rebels Award 2015
Nadine and her family flee the civil conflict and rebel army in Goma to start over in the UK. But school is a strange and frightening place to Nadine- until a teacher finds her a special picture which reminds her of home. Little Rebels Judge, Kim Reynolds, said: 'This short book conveys some of the sense of strangeness, fear and unhappiness children like Nadine experience. It also provides an optimistic ending of a kind that can help children believe it is possible for situations to improve- a vital source of inspiration for little rebels in the making'.
