Product description

A heartwarming tale of losing and finding: just as magical as that gorgeous front cover. A glorious read by the author of Artichoke Hearts. (Perfect for autumn, but great all year round.) Not all lives fit neatly into boxes. Some people are left scattering like leaves. Like Aisha, a runaway refugee. Or like twelve-year-old Zak, set adrift by his parents’ divorce. Both kids run to the same place for shelter: the ancient city woods, which become their sanctuary. Here they meet each other – and Elder, a strange homeless woman. Meanwhile, police helicopters throb overhead, searching for the missing kids. But are they ready to be found yet?

  • A stunning tale of hope and belonging by a Waterstones Prize winner
  • Sita Brahmachari is the author of Artichoke Hearts and Jasmine Skies
  • Explores topical issues of refugees, homelessness and human rights
  • “A beautiful tale of modern multicultural Britain” – Booktrust
