Book of the month – April 2019

April's Book of the Month is The Boy at the Back of the Class by Onjali Q. Rauf

One day the empty chair at the back of the class is filled by a new boy, Ahmet.

It soon becomes clear to the children that Ahmet hasn’t just come to a new school, but a whole new country.

And he has come on his own, running away from a war he doesn’t understand.

Despite the difficulties, he soon forms a new group of friends who help protect him from the ignorance and bullying of others.

A heart-warming story of refugees, 
survival and friendship.
